'I have had one tooth put back in towards the front. I was looking too much like a crackhead, basically,' the 49-year-old comedian said. Adding “I shouldn't have as many mouth problems as I have. I've probably got enough money to have a good mouth, but your mouth problems can be diet-related.”
Dave also credited his newly-adopted vegan diet has enhanced his oral health.
'Since I became a vegan four months ago, I've stopped eating chocolate and I haven't had any mouth pain in a while, so hopefully that means my teeth will stay in my head. Touch wood,' he said.
Dave joked that the one advantage of having unsightly teeth is that he is able to encourage his children to brush theirs by saying, 'So, you want to end up like dad?'
