Matt lived in New York in small apartments during his early days of acting. And in those days, head shots (pictures of yourself) were very important to have if you wanted to apply for an acting job. Matt also went to get some head shots and the camera man in the studio told LeBlanc to have his tooth filed first before the head shot. 
Matt went to a dentist and came to find out that it would cost him a lot of money to have his tooth filed and he didn’t have all that money. Matt asked the doc casually about how the doc files the tooth and getting that information, Matt came home with a pack of emery board and… yes! he filed his own tooth like Joey would have done in the show FRIENDS.
