Rapper Kanye West never fails to stun his fans. He has, once again, made headlines, only this time for replacing his natural teeth with titanium dentures. These resemble the iconic ones worn by the infamous James Bond villain, Jaws, who was seen in 'The Spy Who Loved Me' and 'Moonraker.'

On Wednesday, the 'Flashing Lights' rapper was spotted with Chris Rock and Bianca Censori, wherein he donned a new supervillain-chic look. In many of the photographs, he's seen chatting and smiling, which feature his newly-done teeth, which are rumoured to have cost an astonishing $850,000 (approx. Rs 7 lakh).

West, who custom-made the design of the dentures, had his natural teeth removed and had it replaced with titanium to create this distinctive look, which is described to be "more expensive than diamonds."

Back in 2010 when he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 'Heartless' singer stated that he had his entire lower set of teeth replaced with implants made of diamond and gold, only because he "thought that diamonds were cooler."

He added by saying that, "There’s just certain things that rock stars are supposed to do."
