While talking with Ellen, fans were caught-off guard by what appeared to be diamonds in Kanye's teeth.

However, a New York-based cosmetic dentist, Dr. Ramin Tabib, said, "I couldn't imagine any dentist that would actually be convinced to extract someone's teeth to replace them with diamonds. This borders on malpractice. It's like going to your internist and asking him to cut your left hand off because you really don't need two hands."
Regardless of whether the diamond teeth are real, Kanye always knows how to make a statement.
