Conservative Cast Gold Restorations
Why do we use conservative cast gold restorations? Gold is the most reliable dental material with many wonderful properties. We place these because we know that our patients want a conservative, predictable, long-lasting, and trouble free restoration, which provides long-term protection. The majority of the time, we can be so conservative with these gold castings that you won’t even be able to see them.
Inlays and Onlays
The two main types of conservative cast gold restorations are inlays and onlays, the difference between them is that an inlay stays within the confines of the tooth cusps, while an onlay covers at least one cusp and possible all of them.
