parrillas dentales

I don't know if there's a slang in Spanish for "grillz/fronts" now that they are so popular among singers. "Parrillas dentales" is almost a literal translation but probably just "grills" or "fronts" are being used instead since they were introduced into Spanish language by bilingual people who hardly try to translate those words unless it's catchy, disrespectful or hilarious.
On the other hand, it seems the target audience for your text is familiar with this lingo.
