Each tooth gem specialist’s profile includes work samples as well as commentary about their practice, process, and style. An introduction by journalist Lauren Levy provides cultural context as well as a wider history of tooth adornments, from gold bands worn by ancient Etruscans and jade inserts favored by the Maya, to the grills sported by rappers starting in 1980s New York City, the idea for which came from West Indian immigrants’ gold teeth.
