Kanye West’s lip ‘growth’ made more prominent by his $850K titanium dentures: celebrity dentist

Kanye West’s apparent “lip growth” is no cause for concern, according to celebrity dentist Dr. Clement Kairouz.

The “All of the Lights” rapper caused concern when he shared a video on social media addressing the risqué images he shares of his wife, Bianca Censori, but all fans could focus on was the bump.

Kairouz, who works at Apa Aesthetic New York, however, tells Page Six exclusively that the bump is due to a dental bridge he had installed that is pushing his upper lip out.

“Kanye has always had a prominent cupid’s bow and upper tubercle tissue, so I do not think we’re looking at tissue overgrowth,” Kairouz, who has not treated West, tells us.

“Photos suggest he got a fixed bridge that does not respect natural oral anatomy or leave space for soft tissue,” Kairouz explains, adding that the bridge is “over-projected” and has pushed “his lip forward, making it appear more prominent.”

Reps for West didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.

The Yeezy designer, 46, debuted his $850,000 titanium dentures last month, which a source told us were actually “fixed prosthodontics” that are permanently adhered to his teeth unlike grills or veneeers.

“This goes way beyond veneers or grills,” the insider shared, “and his particular implant is quite unlike anything that has been done before.”

West worked alongside self-proclaimed “Father of Diamond Dentistry,” Dr. Thomas Connelly, to “manufacture” and “fit” the new teeth, which also included palladium and platinum materials.

“All that said … his teeth weren’t removed,” the source added.

The “Heartless” performer — who legally changed his name to Ye in 2021 — made jaws drop when he took to his Instagram to show off the new chompers, comparing himself to the James Bond villain Jaws, who had similar metal teeth.

A second source told us later that West always has been “weird” about his teeth and claimed he even “brought one dentist to another dentist office to show him how to work on his teeth.”

The insider revealed the discriminating rapper generally has up to a dozen dentists in his rotation at any given moment, and has had many sets of grills redone and removed over the years.

Another source suggested West’s fascination with his mouth may be in light of his famous car accident in 2002 that left his jaw shattered.

West recorded his first hit, “Through the Wire,” when his jaw was still wired shut.
