Why we use gold dental caps for our Kennesaw area patients

In the early years of dentistry, there were only a few choices for material in dental restorations. Today, we have an abundance of materials from which to choose. Modern-day dental crowns may be fabricated from gold, metal alloy, ceramic, porcelain, and other high-grade materials. If a dental crown serves the same purpose regardless of material, why do we have so many choices? Dental medicine caters to the unique needs of the various people in our society. Not every person will respond the same to any given material. It is for this reason that such a variety of options is available. One material that we have found to be advantageous in many cases is gold.

There are two primary goals of dental restoration: full function, and longevity. We want our patients to get years of use out of their restorations, including fillings, inlays, onlays, and crowns. Back teeth sustain a lot of pressure from chewing, and require high quality restorative materials in order to facilitate long-lasting function. This takes us back to one of the very first materials used in dentistry, gold. It has long been an ideal material for dental restorations of all kinds, and remains a favored substance among dentists for good reason.

Among consumers, gold is not typically the first material considered for a dental crown. This material is associated with a certain appearance, and is assumed to be too much color, even for use on molar restorations. Interestingly enough, all-gold crowns on molars are barely visible, far less than a silver filling. Moreover, it is possible to have a gold sub-structure with a porcelain overlay, adding beauty to immense strength. Consumers also tend to think that gold is the more expensive option, and therefore shy away from this material. There are, however, many benefits of investing in a gold crown, such as:
  • There are few restorative materials as biocompatible as gold. This substance has characteristics that are easily tolerated by surrounding tissues, leading to fewer instances of irritation of the gums, tongue, or other soft tissues that may come into contact with the crown.
  • Gold allows for a better bond to teeth without the extensive removal of natural tooth structure. Leaving more of the natural tooth intact, the crown has a stronger foundation on which to rely for chewing.
  • Because a larger amount of natural tooth structure can remain when gold is the chosen material, it becomes possible, in some cases, to restore full function with an inlay or onlay, rather than a full coverage dental crown.
  • Unlike some other restorative materials, gold is better able to retain its structure during the fabrication process, as well as in the presence of cold or hot temperatures. A gold crown will be one of the best-fitting dental caps you will ever receive in our Kennesaw practice.
  • Most dental crowns are expected to last from five to ten years. People who have had gold crowns placed find that, twenty years later, they are still going strong.
Our priority is to provide our patients with the most up-to-date treatment options. Contact us to schedule your appointment at Thirty-Two Dental today.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
