Cast Gold Inlays

Cast Gold Inlays are simply fillings made from gold and fitted to a cavity in a tooth and cemented into place.Cast-Gold-Inlays_thumbnails

A dental inlay is a type of restoration that fixes an existing tooth that is too damaged to support a simple filling, but not so damaged that it needs a dental crown.

Dental inlays and dental onlays are intended to repair the tooth’s chewing surface, and in some cases, repair teeth with other restoration options: the dental filling, which fills a hole in the tooth, and the dental crown, which covers most of the tooth.

Dr. Friscia recommends using gold for inlays but your choice of materials depends on aesthetic appeal, longevity and your budget.
