LeAnn Rimes

Sues Dentist

You Screwed Up My Teeth!

EXCLUSIVE

0214-leann-rimes-tmzLeAnn Rimes is suing her dentist, claiming he botched up her mouth so bad ... it's messing up her career.

In the lawsuit ... obtained by TMZ ... Rimes claims she went to Dr. Duane C. McKay for various dental work over 3 years. Some of the work included upper front veneers and crowns that the dentist promised would address her TMJ-related pain as well as improve her appearance.

Rimes claims rather than helping, the dentist messed her mouth up bad, causing tremendous pain and bleeding. Back in October, she tweeted, "I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat."

Rimes says she's had to undergo 9 root canals and bone grafting. She's also had a temporary bridge and needed physical therapy as well. 

Rimes says in the suit she will have a "permanent cosmetic deficiency."

Rimes says the dental work is so bad it has been screwing with her career ... impeding her ability to perform.

In her malpractice lawsuit, LeAnn is seeking unspecified damages for physical, emotional and psychiatric injuries. She also wants money for loss of past and future earnings.

A new dentist (my lifelong dentist passed away) screwed up my teeth royally (turning my once healthy teeth into crap). Amazingly, they still LOOK fine, but are starting to break down, shift, loosen and become sensitive and painful. I think I'll take LeAnn's lead and sue the baastaard.

9 root canals? How about brush and floss regularly and maybe you won't have such a mess in you mouth to fix.

She should have left them alone years ago...I thought the gap she had between her front teeth made her look unique.

This woman cannot keep her gob(literally!) out of the media! If it isn't one thing it's another, anything to keep herself talked about. Ugh!

LeAnn, you are tripping. Everything can't be someone else's fault. Too much goes on in your life that makes no sense. Just stay away from the Essesses.

Something tells me that Leann is one of those kind of people that if you really knew her you would say thank god I'm not married to her.
