Gold is still and will always be the “Gold” standard in dentistry,
There are a few different types of gold restorations that can be placed in your mouth; inlays, onlays and full gold crowns.
Gold Fillings include inlays and onlays.
It is important to note that with any gold restoration you will need two appointments. The first appointment will be the preparation of tooth for which ever gold restoration you choose. An impression with be taken of the prepped tooth and that will be sent to our lab, where the restoration will be had made over a period of two weeks. A temporary restoration will be placed at that first appointment so there will be no sensitivity in between appointments. You will return in two weeks from the time of the prep to seat the restoration. At this appointment you will not need to be numb.
