Dakota Johnson makes an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night (August 6) in New York City.

The 29-year-old actress was asked about how the gap in her front teeth had recently closed up.

“Yeah, [the headlines about it are] really stressing me out. Well, the fact this is a newsworthy in our world right now is pretty [shocking] to me,” Dakota said.

Dakota explained, “I had a permanent retainer since I was 13, and it was just glued to the back of my teeth. I was having a lot of neck problems recently so my orthodontist, she decided it would be a good idea to take it off and see if my jaw expanded, and it helped me. And my gap closed by itself. And I’m really sad about it too.”

She continued, “As you grow as a human being, your skull expands and your jaw and teeth move. Your teeth don’t look like they do when you were baby.”

As Jimmy Fallon tried to keep the interview going and change the subject, Dakota interjected and said, “Anyway, hold on, this is really important,” she cut in passionately. “I’m sad about my gap tooth too so I’d really appreciate some privacy at this time.”

“I have to deal with a whole new world of problems getting food stuck in my tooth. Before it would slide right through. It’s going to come back…[the gap]. [With] other retainers. The world of dentistry is so advanced,” she added.
