Gold Dental Restorations in Orlando

In addition to tooth-colored fillings and all-porcelain crowns, Dr. Puig offers gold restorations. Gold is one of the oldest restoration materials in dentistry, because its low reactivity, high durability, and gentleness on opposite teeth make it an excellent choice.

While gold offers many advantages as a material for dental restorations, it isn't perfect. Like other metals, gold conducts heat efficiently and may contribute to tooth sensitivity to temperature changes. Gold is also not tooth-colored, so it is rarely desirable for use in visible restorations. For back molars when there is concern about surrounding teeth, however, gold is still one of the most popular restoration materials.
