Gold crowns or overlays are the most durable of all restorations 22 Case Study: Gold crowns or overlays are the most durable of all restorations

Often (molar) teeth fracture or have large fillings. An ideal material is gold and this protects the underlying tooth from fracture. Gold restorations have stood the test of time.

However, most individuals do not like to show ‘bling’ in their teeth and therefore opt for porcelain. This is why ceramics grew in popularity. Porcelain crowns and overlays are strong, but not as strong as gold restorations. Gold is also less abrasive to the opposing tooth in your mouth.

When patients presents us with situations that can benefit from gold, we offer them this option.
