Meet LIL WAYNE’S Dentist – Dr. Mongalo
The acclaimed rapper Lil Wayne’s scheduled sentencing in a New York City weapons case was postponed so the rapper could complete a dental procedure by Dr. Virgil Mongalo.
The platinum-selling performer is a long time patient of the Miami cosmetic dentist who was also involved in the creation of the Wayne’s diamond-studded teeth.
Requests for diamond grill work are more rare. When asked about the $150,000 price Wayne is quoted to have paid, Dr. Mongalo paraphrased Don Quixote: “A tooth is worth more than a diamond.”
Lately american multi Olympic medal winner Ryan Lochte shows a nice diamond dental braces posing with his Gold medal.
Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Carter, had planned to have the procedure done before his February 9th sentencing, but Dr. Mongalo was out of the country doing charitable work in Latin America.
Wayne flew to Miami where the cosmetic dentist successfully performed the procedure on last February 16th.
While HIPAA privacy rules prevent revealing the procedure Lil Wayne underwent, it can be said that Dr. Mongalo specializes in smile makeovers and computer-guided implant surgeries such as Teeth-in-an-Hour, a micro-surgical technique that eliminates cutting the gums and sutures.
Lil Wayne is just one of many celebrity patients treated by Dr. Mongalo. The Miami cosmetic dentist regularly performs smile makeovers for film, television and music celebrities as well as Miss Universe contestants.
