Gold Inlays

Gold inlays are a long-lasting and dependable dental restoration used to repair damaged teeth, particularly molars and premolars. Unlike fillings, which are applied directly within the cavity, inlays are custom-crafted pieces that precisely fit within the prepared tooth structure. This offers several advantages, including:

Exceptional Strength and Longevity: Gold is a remarkably strong material, able to withstand the constant pressure of chewing for well over a decade. In some cases, gold inlays can last upwards of 20 years, making them a cost-effective option in the long run.

Minimal Tooth Removal: Compared to other restorations, gold inlays require minimal removal of healthy tooth structure. This helps preserve the integrity of the tooth and minimizes the risk of future fractures.

Biocompatible and Safe:
Gold is a biocompatible material, meaning it integrates well with the body and is unlikely to cause allergic reactions. This makes them a suitable choice for patients with sensitivities to other materials.

While gold inlays offer superior durability, it’s important to consider their aesthetic properties. Due to the gold’s color, they might be noticeable, particularly in highly visible areas of the mouth. If aesthetics are a major concern, you can discuss alternative inlay materials such as porcelain with your dentist.
