It’s been a long time in the making, as hinted on 2001's “Right Now & Later On” record, but Fabolous’ famous chipped tooth is no longer his signature look. As TMZ reports, the Brooklyn rapper spent nearly $40K to get his teeth fixed recently as a birthday treat to himself.

Apparently, Fab got all the work done before New York Fashion Week, where he got a set of 10 new veneers on his top grill. He got the work done with NY dentist Mojgan Fajiram, who charges $4k per veneer, so the math adds up to a light $40K.

TMZ was somehow able to get their hands on the before & after pictures, and there’s definitely a major upgrade. Check it out for yourself in the gallery (above), but beware the before is pretty bold & in-your-face.
