Taylor Swift was left with a dental dilemma during a recent gig in Pittsburgh when she banged her tooth on a microphone.

The country star was performing her hit “I Knew You Were Trouble” when she smacked the mic into her mouth and cracked a tooth.

She says, “I try to be really quick with the microphone, so I’m not standing there just waiting to sing with my mic right next to my face, so I really quickly pulled my mic up to sing and basically uppercut punched myself in the tooth.”

“Part of it fell onto the stage and I was like, ‘Oh, I wonder how bad that was. I wonder which tooth that is…'”

But the mishap hasn’t left too much damage and Swift won’t be rushing to her dentist and asking him to fix her her smile: “I’m not doing anything about it. It’s just gonna be a little bit jagged, I guess.”
