Does Your Smile Reveal Your Age?

As we age, our smile can suffer — as chipped, stained or missing teeth can make you appear much older. Some people become self-conscious, avoid smiling or having photographs taken. 

Fortunately, there are some things you can do to keep your teeth healthy. There are also cosmetic options you can consider if you need to restore your smile.

Key takeaways:

– Reduce enamel erosion by reducing the sugary foods you eat — and remember to brush twice a day.

– Your teeth remain strong if you look after them — so maintain a regular schedule of check-ups with your dentist.

– Be careful with crunchy or hard foods, ice or sweets, as they can cause a chipped tooth

– See your dentist for advice if you grind your teeth

If your teeth and smile seem to have aged, ask your dentist about professional teeth whitening, or suitable cosmetic options like veneers to restore your youthful smile.
