Million Dollar Baby

7/28/2006 4:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Baby's Bling: Click to watchPeople joke that Julia Roberts has a million dollar smile but rapper Baby literally does - and he has the bling to prove it.

TMZ was there as the Cash Money Millionaires artist had his $250,000 platinum/white gold plated and diamond encrusted grill (which means teeth in old English) replaced with a new and improved one worth $500,000.

The diamonds were designed by jeweler to the stars Chris Aire. Aire is the first designer to provide ascher cut diamonds made especially for use as a dental accessory.

The four hour procedure, performed by Beverly Hills dentist Dr. Daniel Durchslag, may seem bizarre to some, but Baby says he's just looking to "take it to another level."

And to keep his smile sparkling, don't expect to see him using Colgate anytime soon. Dr. Durchslag has concocted a special toothpaste that won't dull or scratch Baby's newly drilled family jewels.

Baby's extreme makeover should come as no surprise since he and the Cash Money Millionaires are responsible for coining the now ubiquitous term "bling bling." Which makes perfect sense since Baby says bling is his "passion" in life.

Besides the costs associated with the oral surgery and the diamonds, Baby also has an insurance policy on his new evil grin estimated at around $700K.

With a price tag like that, Baby's tooth fairy better have the last name Trump.

Well, I don't think he should put that stuff in his mouth, but to each his/her own. Some people (who don't have anything) always expect those who do to take care of them. Well, where were you all when he and his family and countless others did have money. The homeless, schools, Katrinia victims, etc. don't care who or where the money comes from. Any assistance is greatly appreciated. I always say don't get mad at the stars for being who they are and getting paid what they get paid. Good for them. That is the careers they chose. No one told any of you to be a cashier or a waiter or secretary, etc. working for minimum wage. It is a shame that he put that stuff in his mouth, but not because of what he paid for it, but because it could mess up his teeth. Why don't all of you who believe he should donate money and help those that are less fortunate, get together and send money to those who need it. Also, why don't each of you take in a homeless person and help them get on their feet. You won't will you. Then SHUT UP!!!!!

WHAT THE HELL???

COME ON!! This is just plain ridiculous!! He could have donated that money to a food bank or to Katrina victims, or if he didn't want to donate to charity he could have bought a house or a car ...something sensible!

All that money on that? It looks awful!

So FREAKIN stupid!!! I sure can think of better ways to spend that kind of money. What about standing on a street corner and handing out money to strangers. Or how about taking in a homeless and helping them straighten out their lives. I wish some of these big wig MONEY hungry rich people would stop and think of who feeds there bank accounts and be SMART for ONCE!!!!

Its called the dumbing down of America. Some of these "entertainers" are the dumbest people around. I have seen some interview on the tonight show with these young stars and they have the brains of ten year olds.... the can barely hold a conversation that makes any sense. What an utter waste of money to look like a freak.

Imagine talking to him at the dinner table. Everything he ate is going to get all hung up on his diamond encrusted grill. Yuk. What an absolute waste. I wonder if he gets punched in the mouth if every inch of the insides of his lips bleed for hours. His grill won't be all sparkly then. Oh yeah he has special toothpaste, translation-dentist puts colgate in a special tube and charges his $1000 a tube. HA HA HA. What a lunatic Baby is, we will see him sharing a room with MC Hammer in a few years after he has one by one hawked each of his special teeth for much needed cash.
