At times, there seems to be an endless amount of challenges that surface as our bodies age. Among these challenges are maintaining a beautiful smile as our enamel wears away, decay sets in, and our teeth become discolored. The good news is that there are a variety of cosmetic treatments that seniors can schedule to maintain a beautiful smile as you age.
Watch the video below to learn what the American Dental Association has to say in regards to why gums recede and what can be done to prevent and treat gum recession:
“You’re never too old to improve your smile. As we age, our teeth may become discolored, worn, or chipped. Older restorations may become damaged. Our gums may recede. Otherwise healthy teeth may not have the treatments you desire. Tooth whitening treatments can brighten discolored teeth. Veneers, which are custom-made shells covering the front side of teeth can restore stained, worn, or chipped teeth while maintaining a natural appearance. Composite fillings made of tooth-colored materials can be used in cavities to replace worn-out amalgams. These tooth-colored composite fillings may help improve the look of your smile. You may want to consider dental implants to fill in for missing teeth, replace damaged teeth, or secure removable dentures or bridges. Whatever your age, it’s never too late for a beautiful smile.”
