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.

The married man she went down on while cheating on her husband probably likes her toothless anyway.

She's been doing a fine job of screwing up her career on her own. Now to suddenly decide that a dentist who she has been going to for THREE years is to blame?????? Too bad she has turned into such a loser.

it wasn't Leann Rimes' Dentist that screwed up her career. It was the talentless, home-wrecking whore herself that did it. She is terribly cruel and insensitive to Brandi Glanville (sp?), so I guess that this is karma's way of paying her back. Her short lived career is over and thank God. Now she can go back to doing what she does best....Wrecking homes. Eddie Cibrian was lucky to have Brandi. Him and Leann deserve each other. They are both unfaithful gutter trash.
