The Midas Touch: A patient’s perspective on gold as a dental material

“GOLD is King!  I’ve had issues with cracked teeth, root canals and the subsequent loss of teeth for years. More recently I had another cracked tooth.  My treatment plan included the placing of a gold overlay on the injured tooth.  I have never had gold in my mouth prior to this and was assured that the work that would be performed would last 30 or more years. I was ecstatic not only about the longevity of the overlay, but also for the procedure that would save my tooth.  I absolutely love the gold! It feels great in my mouth, very smooth against my tongue. I have had no issues with the overlay and am very pleased with the final result. I would highly recommend using gold for its longevity as well as its non-re-activeness. There is also no need to worry about having any sort of metal taste in your mouth. I have not experienced anything of the kind.” -AL
