Would it be a problem to put a gold grill on my teeth?

Would it be a problem to put a gold grill on my teeth?

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 more

For patients with grinding habits, are crowns made of gold good option for back teeth 11, # 14 Can you review gold crowns Cons and pros? Please.

For patients with grinding habits, are crowns made of gold good option for back teeth 11, # 14
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 more

Which could very well be the longer lasting dental cap for back teeth--cerec, porcelin fused to high noble metal or a gold crown?

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; anyone 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

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

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 as well. ...Read more

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.

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 more

Gold Crown was hurting, went in and they extracted my wisdom tooth, 2 weeks later my crown hurts again and dr. says he needs to clean my teeth first?

Answer-: It's impossible for us over the internet to determine both the cause of the problem and the order of treatment. This is a determination that must be exercised by a knowledgeable dentist with training and experience based upon a clinical exam, x-rays, periodontal probing and other tests. Either trust your dentist's advice or seek another dentist whom you do trust. Ask questions. ...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".?

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 more

Maybe, see a Dentist: Many dental insurance contracts are written specifically to allow benefits for crown only when the tooth is sufficiently broken down. They may also only cover the least costly metal (not gold) crown. Also, there may be a clause in your insurance contract stating you have to be covered for a certain amount of time (like 1 year) before they pay benefits for major category dental procedures. ...Read more

Where does the rubber band go on the gold chain to treat an impacted tooth exposure?

Where does the rubber band go on the gold chain to treat an impacted tooth exposure?

During Orthodontic?: The most common time an unerupted tooth is dragged into the dental arch is an impacted cuspid or "eye tooth". There was a time when a gold chain was fixed around the impacted tooth and the chain attached to the orthodontic arch wire with an elastic. I woiuld be surprised to see a gold chain these days as modern alloys have additional benefits. More often a steel alloy bracket or button is bonded. ...Read more

When I eat I feel an occasional slight pain in my back tooth with gold crown. Is it due to having a 4 or 5 there?

When I eat I feel an occasional slight pain in my back tooth with gold crown. Is it due to having a 4 or 5 there?

Probably not: I assume the 4-5 you refer to is the pocket depth around the tooth. It is the beginning of periodontal disease (gum disease) and tells me you have some bone loss around the tooth. Unfortunately, gum disease does not hurt and sneaks up on millions of people. I suspect you have a crack in the tooth under the crown. The crack was there before the crown went on, usually from a lg. Silver filling. ...Read more

If I get a gold crown and the tooth hurts, can I receive an implant using the same gold crown?

If I get a gold crown and the tooth hurts, can I receive an implant using the same gold crown?

No: If your tooth hurts, you may not need to lose it. Root canal therapy, done through the crown, may eliminate the pain and solve the problem. If the tooth is lost, then the existing crown will not be usable since the tooth on which it once fit is not the same shape at the gumline as the implant and thus its fit will be unacceptable. ...Read more

Talk to him: I don't know of any present day dentists who would advocate placing a silver colored filling or a gold colored filling on a front tooth. Talk to him about various other options and what's the most conservative treatment available. Ask him what he would recommend to you if you were his son. ...Read more

Magnet, no: Galvanic action, possibly. There would be two dissimilar metals contacting each other, and with the salts in your saliva, you can have an exchange of ions, like a battery. Have your dentist explain this to you further and your treatment options. ...Read more

My dentist says you can't have a gold crown atop a tooth which has a silver filling since it creates a magnetic. Other opinions?

My opinion\advice: Technically and theoretically, two dissimilar metals in the presence of saliva which is acidic may create a galvanic response causing some 'shock'. In reality, this has never been a problem for me or my patients. It can happen and is often mild and temporary. Other options are to replace the silver filling with a composite filling, or use a ceramic crown. ...Read more
