LeAnn Rimes

Sues Dentist

You Screwed Up My Teeth!

2/14/2013 4:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Does the home wrecker realize bulimia ruins her teeth faster than any dentist could?! All that stomach acid washing over her choppers 5 or 6 times a day is probably responsible for a lot of the damage.

Some psoriasis medications like Remicade, can cause dental problems. She's wrong for suing the dentist. Also, didn't she used to talk about her bad teeth when she was still with Dean?

The fact that she's a cheating home-wrecker is what's damaging her career.

Front teeth do look like HORSE'S TEETH and bunched together (different from side teeth) color is off by at least three shades too.

Too sad... blaming her downfall on a dentist... shows her desperation to improve her looks to keep a man... and that man will not be with her till death us do part... sad... sad... but entertaining :)

Uhhhh. She must be desperate since her income isn't coming in as fast as she and Eddie are spending it. She Cant take responsibility to save her life. Everything is always someone else's fault. All of her cosmetic surgeries have been her decision. Why mess with what you have been born with naturally. She is paying the price. Her horse veneers aren't very attractive. Total Fail.

Only thing worse than dental work is BAD dental work. Unfortunately it happens a lot and you just end up at another dentist praying they know what the hell they are doing. Hate going to the dentist.
