If you have experienced some level of decay or damage to one or more of your teeth as you age, you are not alone. In fact, millions of Americans experience the exact same thing. When this decay or damage happens, the health and appearance of your teeth can be negatively affected. In addition to the degradation of the appearance of your smile, damaged or diseased teeth can lead to further problems if left untreated.

Certain activities such as chewing ice grinding your teeth should be avoided.
