LeAnn Rimes has sued her dentist for allegedly doing botched work on her teeth over the years.

According to TMZ the singer claims that the doctor did faulty work on her mouth over the past three years.

LeAnn believes that his allegedly poor treatments have adversely affected her musical career.

She has had upper front veneers and crowns put in place by Dr. McKay amongst other work.

Legal documents that the website obtained claim that LeAnn is suffering from “permanent cosmetic deficiency” due to the dentist’s misconduct.

The star states that she has had nine root canals, bone grafting, a temporary bridge and physical therapy all resultant of Dr. McKay messing up her mouth.

In October of last year, LeAnn took to Twitter to share with fans the pain she was feeling in her gums.

"I feel like I got hit in my right side of my face with a baseball bat,” she tweeted.

LeAnn is requesting an unspecified amount in damages for emotional, psychiatric and physical injuries.

She also wants the dentist to fork over cash to cover loss of earnings for past and future performances.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

It feels like friends are few and far between. If you're not getting the help you need, ask why. It may be because you have been so preoccupied with work. Skipping special occasions and failing to return phone calls causes resentment. You have to be more engaged to sustain loving bonds. Call someone you've missed. It may take a few tries, but it's worth the effort. Be forthright about why you have been out of touch. Communication is the cornerstone of every healthy relationship.More
