Gold is valuable in more ways than one. One of its many uses is in the creation of dental treatments for decayed or damaged teeth. If you are looking for gold dental in Newport Coast, our office can take care of your needs.
Because gold is so strong, it is often used to build crowns. A crown, also referred to as a cap, is fashioned to look like a complete tooth. A patient can elect to leave the gold showing or can opt to cover the gold with porcelain. When the tooth is towards the front of the mouth, patients might prefer that the tooth look like the other teeth. However, if the tooth is in the back, especially in the upper part of the mouth, the gold may be left exposed because it serves so well.
If you have a problem with the tooth, the tooth that is to be replaced will be prepared to receive the crown. The remaining part of the decayed or broken tooth is smoothed out, then an impression is taken of the area so a custom made crown can be created. The crown is bonded to the tooth using dental cement. The tooth and crown are joined in such a way that nothing can penetrate the new “tooth” and cause new problems.
There was a time when dentists used gold to create solutions for a multitude of dental problems. Before mercury amalgam was developed, there was gold. Gold was used before silver became available for use in fillings. Today, it is still used because it is resistant to corrosion, hard enough to endure the constant use as a tooth in a normal mouth, yet is pliable.
Our staff is trained to evaluate the condition of your teeth and recommend the steps required to restore your dental health. Your overall health is dependent on the state of your mouth. When you call our office for an appointment, you can rely on the fact that we are ready to take care of your dental needs. During your evaluation, your dentist will discuss your issues and options. A treatment plan will be designed to fit your requirements and budget.
