Rough Night star Demi Moore has been having a rough time dentally: She revealed on the Tonight Show Monday that she is missing her two front teeth. After host Jimmy Fallon held up a toothless photo she had provided, Moore explained that she had lost the teeth due to stress, People reports. "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 in America, which is stress," the 54-year-old said. Experts say stress can lead to teeth grinding, which can weaken teeth and cause plenty of other dental problems.

Moore tells Page Six that she didn't lose both at the same time. "They happened a year apart but the fact remains that I sheared off both my front teeth," she says. "Thank God for modern dentistry. Without it, I wouldn’t be smiling on the red carpet." She told Fallon that she made sure her teeth were in for the Tonight Show appearance, though her three daughters like it when she leaves them out. "They love seeing me without my teeth," Moore said. "Because they think it makes me look more vulnerable and more human." (Moore is being sued by the parents of a man who died in a pool at her home two years ago.)
