Soulja Boy’s former dentist has addressed pictures of the rapper’s teeth after recent dental work. Dr. Catrise Austin said the artist visited her in the early 2000s at her New York office, and she said “his teeth were not as dark and chipped as they are in this photo.”

“The #1 question that I’ve gotten is … if these are his teeth, how did they get so dark and chipped?” the dentist told AllHipHop.

Austin suspects that Soulja Boy may have avoided going to the dentist for a while.
