Are you looking for the highest quality restorative dentistry in Newport Beach? You have come to the right place. Andrew Spath, DDS, is a respected teacher and lecturer of restorative dentistry, as well as member of the prestigious R.V. Tucker Gold Study Club.
Gold was among the first materials used in dentistry (long before it was called “dentistry”). Evidence of gold dental restorations has been found dating as early as 2500 B.C. Despite the plethora of modern tooth-colored materials, gold remains the most reliable and longest lasting material available – if used correctly. The quality
of the restoration directly relates to the skill
of the dentist.
The exclusive Tucker Technique is one of the primary reasons for the increasing popularity of gold restorations. In an extensive study involving over 1,000 patients, nearly three quarters of gold restorations placed with this technique were still in place over 20 years later. Membership in a R.V. Tucker Gold Study Club, under the supervision of Tucker mentor, is the only way to learn this technique.
A few of the principles utilized in the highly sophisticated Tucker technique include:
- Absolute efficiency, completing each step in the correct way, in the correct order
- Conservation of tooth surface
- Flowing, smooth form
- Sharp margins with an even taper on all walls
- Appropriate depth and flare for maximum retention
- Precision accuracy at every step
Dr. Spath is one of the select few to master this revolutionary gold casting procedure. The benefits of gold – strength
, resilience, and gentleness to other teeth – are most important at the back of your mouth, where the biting force is greatest. These restorations are often not visible when you speak or smile. Some patients choose gold restorations for their front teeth as well. However, if you prefer a natural appearance, you may prefer porcelain crowns or veneers on front teeth, and gold on back teeth. Because Dr. Spath is also an accomplished cosmetic dentist, he can offer the best of both words – beautiful, functional, long-lasting restorations.
Call today and schedule an appointment with Dr. Spath today – because you, and your smile, deserve the best.
