A 10X blog entry from Editor Beth Braverman, "Grills bill to hit state senate," told us about a proposed bill that would take grill-making out of the hands of jewelers and place it in the care of dentists. While I don't have an update on the status of the Tennessee "Grills bill," I do have good news for grill lovers and anyone concerned about their dental health.

Deco Dent Teeth Jewellery, the subject of a recent article on the World Gold Council's Web site, has a new line of gold and white facings that bond to the tooth's surface without damaging the enamel. And Deco Dent's Web site provides a list of dentists in the United States and abroad who have worked with their products.

The California-based company also offers gold and crystal tooth jewels as safer and cheaper alternatives to grills. And you thought do-it-yourself kits were only for home renovations! Oh no my friend, Deco Dent is jumping on the DIY bandwagon too. The home kit even has its own micro site.
