Baby Boomers and Dental Wear

If you are a Baby Boomer who is wondering, “What happened to my teeth?”—you are not alone. In my practice, I see many people in their 50s and 60s who, for lots of reasons, neglected their dental health. The most common excuse? The expense of raising kids and putting them through college. At this stage of their lives, they may be suffering from tooth decay, have already lost a tooth, or just have normal wear and tear of their teeth.

Fortunately, there are many ways to restore your teeth to good health. Bridges can fill in the gap of a missing tooth using healthy adjacent teeth. Crowns can provide a solid chewing foundation for a damaged tooth. If you have already lost a lot of teeth, dentures can be a cosmetically pleasing and effective way to restore your smile. Even teeth that have been worn down can look new with veneers that bond to your natural tooth and look like you were born with them.
