LeAnn Rimes Sues Dentist Over Teeth Troubles

February 15, 2013 03:00 PM by Megan Wilson

LeAnn Rimes is having some trouble with her mouth-and not just when she botches performances on The X Factor!  From what we’re hearing, Ms. Rimes has been having some major oral difficulties, leading the singer to sue her dentist!  Keep reading for the details!

Not many people really enjoy going to the dentist, but for LeAnn Rimes, the experience has become traumatic.  So much so, that she is feeling the need to sue her dentist for not only medical costs, but psychological issues as well!

LeAnn was seeing Dr. Duane C McKay, and appeared to have quite a bit of dental work done over a period of three years.  What started as a simple job of veneers at the advice of Dr. McKay (To help with TMJ pain), turned into a whole mouth remodel.  After complaining of pain from the veneers, Dr. McKay reportedly performed nine root canals (Including some emergency procedures), bone grafting, a temporary bridge and even physical therapy.  In the lawsuit, LeAnn states she’s incurred a “Permanent cosmetic deficiency” which will lead to further work and surgeries down the road.  She’s frequently tweeted about the numerous procedures she’s had done, including two surgeries while on tour-one in May and one in July.

the lawsuit claims that the work has affected LeAnn’s “ability to perform as an artist has been and will continue to significantly compromised until all re-treatment is completed,” and she’s seeking unspecified general damages and reimbursement for medical expenses and tacking on “emotional and psychiatric injuries”.

What do you think will happen in the lawsuit?  Let us know in the comments!

    Why would someone as rich aas Rimes get the massive amount of work done without seeking a second or third opinion to make sure the first dentist wasn’t a scam artist ?

    I LOVE the way that LeAnn smiles in the video for her song named “Something’s Gotta Give” when she first meets the guy near the end. (smiles)

    God bless you and her always!!!

    Holly in East Tennessee (a day one fan of her)

    P.S. If her dentist really did mess up in any way, may they NOT get away with it.

    I suffered for 2 years with TMJ, spending tons of $ with many different dentists and md’s. Finally went to a chiropractor who referred me to the greatest healer I have ever encountered. He was a dentist but did nothing radical, he combined his dental knowledge with using natural treatments. I felt relief after only one treatment but needed to continue treatment for 6 mos/ Thank goodness the TMJ has never returned.
    The pain of TMJ is all consuming and does affect your daily life and ability to perform to what is required of you. Don’t give up Ms. Rimes.

    I used to work at a Dental Office that did veneers, and the patients would complain about sensitivity to cold air,etc. A Dentist told me once that:you never let a Dentist drill on your tooth without water. It tends to make the tooth overheat. This results in having root canals done later down the line. I think she has a good case. I feel really sorry for him.

    DO NOT USE A “DENTIST ARBITRATION” SERVICE!!!! It is an old boys school network of protecting BAD DENTISTS. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS GREAT LIE!-Dentist Negligence Mediation is a legal process known as Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), to resolve conflict without taking court action. Disputes can be settled without filing lawsuit and costly court fees. Dentist Negligence Mediation is arranged by lawyer or through certified mediation programs. Mediation is confidential and voluntary. Dentist Negligence Mediation can resolve disputes with quick, fair legal justice.
    It is so you can get a letter in the mail stating the dentist did all the procedures correctly. And that you have NO BUSINESS SUING THE DENTIST. And you sign your rights away. NEVER USE A DENTAL ARBITRATION SERVICE!! TAKE THEM TO COURT!!!TAKE THEM TO COURT!!!TAKE THEM TO COURT!!!TAKE THEM TO COURT!!! HAVE A JUDGE HEAR YOU!!!! Do not use the dental arbitration service. YOU WILL LOSE!!! HAVE A JUDGE HEAR YOU!!!! The dentist will not give a full root canal, he will drill down 9/10ths of the way, fill the root canal. BILL YOUR INSURANCE AND YOU FOR IT!! LATER THAT SAME ROOT CANAL IS HURTING YOU, YOU ARE BACK IN THE CHAIR HAVING THE SAME PROCEDURE DONE OVER AGAIN. Another thing they do is their work is so poor that they just they “KEEP FILLING THE SAME TOOTH” UNTIL IT NEEDS EXPENSIVE PROCEDURES SUCH AS ROOT CANALS,CROWNS, EXTRACTIONS. A person at my wife’s office had half her mouth removed because of this. A root canal is once in a while thing. If you need more than one root canal or your teeth feel horrible even thought you are seeing the dentist. GET ANOTHER DENTIST!!! Get the new dentist to catalog all that he’s(the old dentist) has done and take HIM TO LEGAL COURT OF LAW AND HAVE 12 JURORS HEAR YOU. It’s taken 10 years now, 15 root canals, I have one more crown to replace then I’m done with the damage the ‘ASSEMBLY LINE DENTIST DID.I LOST MY CASE!! BECAUSE I WAS STUPID!
