Gold Teeth Grillz
Grill: Besides the personal preference of gold in the front, the material itself is not a problem. The problem would be reducing or damaging your teeth and exposure to weakening of tooth structure, leakage and decay and ease of cleaning. Maybe a removable grill would be an option. Put it in when needed and then take out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can you review gold crowns Cons and pros? please.
Good functional opt: Gold is a wonderful material to fabricate a posterior crown , especially for a grinder! The pros are the way it will function & wear against the opposing arch, no risk of breakage and excellent marginal integrity & fit. The major con is the esthetics, but not a big deal on a posterior tooth. Today, Zirconium milled crowns are supposed to offer all the pros of gold, but with esthetics. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Had bad experience with new bridges break. Can i just get broken bridge out do gold crowns on # 11&14. Then leave teeth 12& 13 space empty. Feedback.
Possible: There are many reasons why a bridge can break. The span from teeth #11 to 14 is relatively long so the bridge will continue to break overtime. For a better long term solution, consider placement of dental implants/crowns at sites #12 and 13 and crowns on teeth #11 and 14. Dental implants is the best option. However, every patient is different. Discuss these options with your dentist. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can you tell me what you suggest if the dentist removes your gold capped teeth, should they be returned to you?
Why not: The old, useless bridgework belongs to you. It is not worth a whole lot of money since it is technically scrap metal, but it is yours to keep if you want. Just ask for it. ...Read more
Which is better for 4 units bridge on teeth # 11 to # 14: a high noble metal in a "yellow gold" color or "silvery gold". ?
Either: Both are ada approved and considered acceptable. However, the high noble will generally last longer. I am assuming that since #11 is involved you will be having it covered in porcelain so from an appearance point of view, either would be fine and close to equal in quality and longevity. The semi-precious or "silvery-gold" should save you money though with the high price of gold. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Which could very well be the longer lasting dental cap for back teeth--cerec, porcelin fused to high noble metal or a gold crown?
Two issues here: There are two factors to consider when answering this question: 1-Strength of crown: a gold crown cannot break; any one with a ceramic surface can break although very small percentage. 2- Any tooth with a crown can decay around margins if poor oral hygiene or high sugar or acid intake. Each type of crown has advantages and disadvantages. Speak to your own dentist as to which is best for you. ...Read more

Which type for 4 unit bridge you recommend on back molar teeth #11 to 14. Is it crown- porcelain fused to high noble metal, gold, or pure porcelain.?
For durability and strength on back teeth, which crown materials do you use. Yellow or white gold. How many carat gold you should use.. ? 16 or 20 Why
It's not jewelry: Dental gold is highly alloyed with other metals to achieve optimal strength along with other less obvious characteristics. While it has a carat rating that can vary, we don't focus on that parameter like the jewelry market does. Scrap processors have a different focus than do restorative dentists. You might ask a nearby dental lab about material options also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
