Rihanna, 24, revealed that even when she looks gorgeous on the outside she still struggles with her inner beauty as she undoubtedly damaged her smile with a gold grill on Tuesday night.

Rihanna stepped out for dinner at her favourite restaurant showing the mouth accessory as she rocked up to Giorgio Baldi for dinner with pals.

Her grill, which is a gold or bejeweled dental apparatus that sits over the teeth in the same way that a gum shield does, ruined completely her appearance.

Although they can be easily applied and removed as a temporary fashion accessory, they usually worn by men.

It is well known that they are generally worn as a status symbol of wealth in the hip hop community and have been earning people street cred ever since the early 1980s when the blinged-out teeth became a full-blown hip-hop fashion statement.

It has to be noted that earlier this year Chris Brown joined rappers Kanye West, Nelly, Lil Wayne, and Lil Jon in the trend by proudly flashing his golden chompers to the dancing crowds at AV Nightclub in Hollywood.

Olympic swimming champion Ryan Lochte also wore a set of grills after winning gold, which were customised to show the American flag.

It has to be mentioned that Rihanna herself first began wearing the gold mouthpiece in 2011 when she filmed her music video for "You Da One".

Rihanna may have found it rather difficult to eat her meal with the expensive piece of metal covering her teeth but fortunately she could have removed with ease.

Gold grills over the teeth are absolutely not flattering for women. Hope that Rihanna realize it soon and never wear them again!
