Is it true that as we age (I am 59), the risk of needing a root canal after getting crown redone is lessened?

My dentist chose the color of my recently cimented crown (A2), insisting anything lighter would be too white without even showing me the alternatives. I was disappointed with the color after they were cimented. She offered to redo them. Are the risk of complications too high at my age?

I hate to hear you are dissatisfied with your A2 shade of your crowns, how much lighter would you like to go?

Here is a question I came across with a similar question about redoing Crowns, that I thought you might be interested in!

Is It Possible to Have a Crown Redone? Will It Mean I Need a Root Canal?

I would like them to be a shade lighter. Would that be A1? My crowns have been removed and the dentist has put in the temporary ones that correspond to A1. However they look too bright.

There are different shade families.  So there is an A1, as you know, but there is also a B1, C1, and D1.  They have different hues to them, some more orange, some more grey, like that.  The 1 is the lightest in each family.
