In an appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon”, Demi Moore said she “sheared off” her two front teeth as a result of stress.
Moore said to Fallon that she thinks it’s important to talk about the reason why she lost her teeth, saying that behind heart disease, stress is a leading cause of death to Americans.
“I’d love to say it was like skateboarding or something really cool, but I think it’s something that’s really important to share because I think it’s literally after heart disease one of the biggest killers in America, which is stress.”
This all raised questions, which led her to clear things up on Page Six: “They happened a year apart but the fact remains that I sheared off both my front teeth… Thank God for modern dentistry. Without it, I wouldn’t be smiling on the red carpet.”
According to dentists, teeth grinding is usually brought on by stress — and can ultimately result in losing permanent teeth.
