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’s 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.
“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… it’s literally, probably after heart disease, one of the biggest killers in America, which is stress,” Moore told Fallon about the incident that left her missing teeth. “Stress sheared off my front teeth.”
As you can tell from the interview, Moore is no longer missing the teeth, but she owes that to a few good dentists. “I literally just, like, knocked it out. It’s almost like it fell out and my warranty was up,” she joked to Fallon. “Thank god for modern dentistry.”
Her daughters, for their part, didn’t mind the missing teeth. “My children love seeing me without my teeth because they think it makes me look more vulnerable and more human,” the actress quipped, reflecting on her kids’ reactions to the photo. Moore also shared a funny Snapchat video of herself in the dentist’s chair before her procedure.
