Sažetak

Aim: Dental aesthetic as a new part of dental medicine is becoming more important in modern society. People are becoming more conscious of their looks, as well as new materials and techniques in dental medicine. The aim of this study was to assess whether age affects the satisfaction of dental aesthetics. Methods: The study population consisted of 700 adults (261 men and 439 women; mean age 46.2 ± 18.6 years, median 45). They completed a questionnaire regarding satisfaction with current dental esthetics issues, such as satisfaction with tooth appearance, color, shape and alignment of maxillary anterior teeth. The answers were compared with the current status (type of the restorative or prosthetic appliance), color, size and the shape of the maxillary anterior teeth. Results: The Pearson correlation showed that there were no statistically significant differences between age and satisfaction with dental aesthetic. Conclusion: Even we expected that the older participants would be more satisfied with dental aesthetics than younger, it did not happen. Probably due to media pressure, dental appearance is equally important for young and old participants.
