Should You Request a Gold Crown?
Posted on 11/17/2017 by Dr. Mark Waring
Sometimes you will see people with a gold tooth or more than one gold tooth. When you see someone smile, you see their white teeth but what if you see something gold in their mouth? All this is, is a gold crown, and although it looks all gold to you, a gold crown is made from gold, copper, and other metals. Here are some benefits to having a gold crown compared to a porcelain crown. Seals Better According to the American Dental Association, gold crowns seal a lot better than porcelain crowns do. Also, because it seals better, it helps to prevent more tooth decay and leakage. Much Stronger Many people prefer gold crowns, not just because of the look it gives them, but because they are much stronger than porcelain crowns. Also, because they are stronger, they are not prone to wear, corrosion, or fracturing. Keeps Healthy Teeth From Going Bad Gold crowns can also keep the other teeth that are healthy from going bad sooner than they should. This is, again, because of how secure the gold is. The gold and other metals in the crown keep it stronger and keep teeth near it that are still healthy, that way for as long as they should be. Gold crowns are also gentle on other teeth while being robust enough to hold for as long as they need to be. Gold crowns have been used by dentists for a long time. According to the history of gold crowns, they have dated all the way back to 4,000 years ago. That just proves how strong they are to be around this long. If you prefer to try a gold crown to a porcelain crown, we can make it happen for you. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, please call us at (480) 820-4342 today....
