How does old age affect teeth and oral health?

As we age, our teeth are affected. They may change color, change appearance, and become loose due to bone loss. But aging itself does not have to be a reason for our teeth to lose their function. With excellent dental care, your teeth can continue to look good and function well far into the aging process.

Many things can stain teeth over time, including:

  • Smoking
  • Coffee and tea drinking
  • Certain food, such as berries, that can stain the teeth
  • Wine drinking
  • Certain medications

But let’s say for a moment that you somehow managed to avoid these substances. What else could affect your teeth? Well, teeth enamel begins to thin with age, causing a gray color and less lustrous appearance. Thinning enamel causes greater risk of decay as well. This alone is good enough reason to seek a solution.

Regardless of your age, you’re never too old to enjoy a beautiful new smile. Porcelain veneers are the perfect solution to aging teeth. Wafer-thin, lustrous shells of porcelain affixed to the front of your teeth, porcelain veneers can create a gorgeous set of pearly whites that will make you look younger and feel younger, as well as helping to restore teeth function and preventing decay.

Porcelain veneers are completely safe, easy to apply and affordable. If you’ve been considering a fast, pain-free way to bring back your youthful smile, porcelain veneers may be exactly the solution you’ve been seeking. Please contact Rochester Advanced Dentistry today to schedule your free, private consultation with Dr. Jeffrey Haddad or Dr. Kurt Doolin to find out if porcelain veneers are the right solution for you.
