If you want to take a pilgrimage to the mecca of gold teeth, pack light, because it’s right here in A-Town. Eddie Plein, owner of EDDIE’S GOLD TEETH, has been in the grill game since gold teeth were just for pirates. Now he’s earned a nationwide reputation that’s as awe-inspiring as his list of clientele. Plein has put bling in the mouths of just about every rapper you’ve ever heard of, from Petey Pablo to Bow Wow, and last year his work was immortalized on film — check out Ludacris’ fronts in Hustle & Flow. There are plenty of imitators out there, but Plein is Atlanta’s original innovator.
