Jimmy Fallon chips his tooth following hand injury

Jimmy Fallon chipped his tooth attempting to open a tube with his teeth

US talk show host Jimmy Fallon has published a picture of himself in the dentists chair after chipping his tooth.

The damage was caused as the Tonight Show host attempted to open a tube of scar tissue repair gel with his teeth, as a result of an earlier hand injury caused by a kitchen mishap.

In June, Fallon tripped in his kitchen, catching his ring on the countertop and almost severing his finger.

Fallon took to Instagram to inform fans of his latest injury, stating: ‘Chipped front tooth trying to open tube of scar tissue repair gel for recovering finger injury. Thank you Dr. Jobe DDS! #BestSummerEver Brand new Tonight Show tonight!
