Gold Dental Crowns
Gold is no longer the most selected of the options listed for a dental crown due to today’s esthetics. However, in some cases in which the patient grinds, clenches the teeth, or simply has a strong bite a gold crown may prove more suitable for their particular needs. A dental crown comprised of gold will offer a stronger supporting structure and durability more suited for the molars in which the restorations are also less visible. In contrast with the other option available, a gold dental crown will not require as much preparation time, is more gentle on its opposing teeth hindering wear and tear, and has a longer lifetime than porcelain or porcelain fused to metal.
