Will You Still Feed Me...When I’m 64?

Smiling older lady sitting outsideMost everything works, but let’s admit it, we are all getting a little older. Maybe you notice a creak here or there, an ache somewhere or another. And I’m guessing you would agree, your teeth aren’t as young as they used to be.

Teeth naturally change as we age. Color darkens, small chips are more noticeable, and teeth can start to drift apart or crowd together. Even in the mouth, it stinks getting old! But just because you may a few more grays and been a long-standing AARP Member, doesn’t mean you have to settle!

Cosmetic dentistry has become all the rage for us boomers. And there is a long list of repairs or slight alterations we can make today that were unheard of in our parent’s time. The choice of dental materials readily available to us now alone is wonderful, and new.

What we can do:

  • For color and minor imperfections, there are whitening, bonding, and veneers-which all yield beautiful results.
  • Orthodontics? At your age? Sure enough, older folks are believers in straighter teeth. Now that you can afford orthodontics, go ahead and fix that crowding or spacing you don’t like. Find out if you are a candidate for Invisalign. The clear and comfortable way to straighten your teeth.
  • If you are a member of the denture league, you are in luck as well. Denture technology is better than ever-more natural, functional, and comfortable.
  • Have you heard of implants? They’re just like teeth! No matter what decade in your life you are rocking, the condition of your teeth, mouth, and gums can be improved-revived even. We have choices….lots of them.

Find out what choices you have.
