I'm going to go out on a limb and call bullshit on the broken teeth photos.  My theory: Gibson slapped her in the heat of the argument, then she went home, pulled the one veneer off and chipped the other one all on her own.  I've been smashed in the face to the point of having my front teeth chipped.  Along with that kind of trauma comes cut and severely swollen lips, gum damage, and the inability to smile like she is in the photo (which was taken just hours after getting hit). One would have to use their fingers to hold their lips open like that if they just got punched that hard.  None of that appears in her case.  Only the broken veneers.  Piece of cake with a pair of pliers, a little alcohol, and a lot of rage.
