FILLINGS THAT ARE AS GOOD AS GOLD Aside from being rare, gold has a number of qualities (including purity and malleability) that make it such a highly regarded precious metal. Not only is it the oldest dental filling material, it is also the most reliable and long-lasting. Additionally, gold is less likely to compromise the color of the surrounding tooth than traditional amalgam filling material, and it does not chip or crack. Filling cavities with this high-quality material involves first eliminating any decay, just as with any cavity-filling procedure. Then, small bits of gold are pressed into the prepared area until its surface is level with the surrounding enamel. Gold is comfortable to chew on, will not deteriorate, and is completely biocompatible. Now, no matter how many cavities you have had filled, your smile can appear unblemished and brilliant.
