Another common dental issues associated with aging is a loss of tooth enamel. Your tooth enamel is the hardest part of your body, and it protects the weaker, more sensitive interior parts of your teeth. If you’ve lost tooth enamel, to protect your teeth we can treat the problem with dental bonding.
If the enamel loss is particularly severe, a crown might be appropriate.
