What to do with $153,000 denture? Just smile! Dubai Liberty Dental Clinic has created a denture made with gold and encrusted with diamonds, which has been valued at $153,000 (AED562,000). Billed as the most expensive smile in the world, the gold and diamond fashion brace, however, is purely intended to be a slip-on piece worn for parties and photos.
Dubai dentist used 10g of pure 24 carat gold and a total of 156 circular 2.5 carat diamonds to create this world’s most expensive denture.
To be most interesting, this unique creation has already found its female UAE buyer, with an order already placed by a Qatari customer for a second one. The clinic added that AED100,000 will be donated from the sale to a UAE children’s charity.
The clinic is waiting to see if its creation will make it into the Guinness Book of World Records.
“We got a certificate from the World Diamond Institute in Belgium to confirm that the diamond and gold used in this brace was totally pure and we are waiting to list it in the record book as the most expensive smile in the world,” said Dr. Majd Naji, head of the clinic.
The inspiration behind the piece, according to Dr Naji, was a story last year that highlighted the UAE as being the happiest place in the world.
“After UAE people got the title of the happiest people we started thinking of making the most expensive smile in the world,” he said.
