Grillz first emerged in the United States in the 1980s. African Immigrants involved in the Transatlantic Slave Trade, or African Diaspora, were first seen with gold teeth. This may come as a surprise, but Gold is one of the cheapest ways to fill cavities for teeth. So during this time, impoverished African Americans living in Brooklyn and the Bronx had gold teeth. Eventually, native New Yorkers started to like the way the gold teeth looked and started to have custom grillz made as a fashion statement.

The rise of hip-hop music in New York in the 1980s led to the creation of the grillz culture. What was once a sign of poverty now became a sign of power, wealth, and success. Since then, the gold grillz industry in the United States has evolved to the point where people are regularly investing hundreds of thousands of dollars on the daily to upgrade their smiles.
