We all have those stories that are totally funny when looking back and laughing about it with friends, but that were incredibly distressing to experience in the first place. On last night鈥檚 episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Demi Moore giggled as she shared a particularly funny but anxiety-inducing moment. Earlier this year, the actress lost a couple of teeth because of stress-induced teeth grinding.

鈥淚 sheared off my front teeth. I鈥檇 love to say it was skateboarding or something really kind of cool, but I think it鈥檚 something that鈥檚 important to share because鈥 it鈥檚 literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in America, which is stress,鈥 Moore told Fallon about the incident that left her missing teeth. 鈥淪tress sheared off my front teeth.鈥

As you can tell from the interview, Moore is no longer missing the teeth, but she owes that to a few good dentists. 鈥淚 literally just, like, knocked it out. It鈥檚 almost like it fell out and my warranty was up,鈥 she joked to Fallon. 鈥淭hank god for modern dentistry.鈥

Her daughters, for their part, didn鈥檛 mind the missing teeth. 鈥淢y children love seeing me without my teeth because they think it makes me look more vulnerable and more human,鈥 the actress quipped, reflecting on her kids鈥 reactions to the photo. Moore also shared a funny Snapchat video of herself in the dentist鈥檚 chair before her procedure.
