Actress Demi Moore revealed that she is missing her two front teeth and thanked modern dentistry because “without it, I wouldn’t be smiling on the red carpet.”
The actress told Jimmy Fallon on Monday’s The Tonight Show, that stress was to blame.
“I sheared off my front teeth. I’d love to say it was skateboarding or something really kind of cool, but I think it’s something that’s important to share because I think it’s literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in America, which is stress,” the 54-year-old said.
On the flip side, Moore added that her kids enjoy her toothless smile.
“My children love seeing me without my teeth because they think it makes me look more vulnerable and more human,” she joked.
The effect of prolonged stress on our bodies is serious, and can indeed lead to tooth loss and is also associated with dental disease.
