Used lotrimin (clotrimazole) to treat jock itch in rotation with gold bond. continued to use gold bond after it cleared. now there's a new rash. is talc the cause?
Great, unless front!: Even with a the fancy materials dentists have to chose from to fabricate crowns from, you'll find that many dentists select cast high Nobel gold crowns for themselves when the tooth isn't in the esthetic zone!

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
