This nose color change is called "snow nose" and usually happened at winter season or excessive use of air condition (very cold temp. For long time).
Also could be feeding bowl use.
Try to feed in steel bowl (for fooding and water), this may solve the problem. But if its genetic then dark black color regaining may be hard.

It happens, you can though ask vet. Try to feed him in "ceramic bowl" some dogs are allergic to steel at this age.
Though, don't use excessive A.C for long time. Keep at normal temp.

This might be due to the genes your dog carriers and it may happen the recessive genes later and have pigmentation effect. I don't know if feeding in steel or ceramic bowl impacts the pigmentation. For more information you can ref.
