Cherry Creek Gold Inlays
Gold is a perfect way to add a touch of luxury to your smile.

In addition, gold inlays are also more resistant to cavities than other types of inlays. If you are looking for a way to add a touch of luxury to your smile, then gold restorations may be the perfect option for you.

What Is An Inlay?
An inlay is a restoration that is used to repair a tooth that has been damaged by decay or injury. Inlays are made from a variety of materials, including gold, porcelain, and composite resin. Unlike fillings, which are placed directly into the tooth, inlays are placed into a hole that has been drilled into the tooth. Once in place, the inlay will be bonded to the tooth using dental cement.
What Are The Benefits Of Gold Inlays?
Gold inlays offer several benefits over other types of inlays. First, gold is a very strong and durable material that is resistant to staining and wear. This means that gold inlays can last for many years without needing to be replaced. In addition, gold is also resistant to cavities. This means that gold inlays can help to protect your teeth from further decay. Finally, gold inlays are also very natural looking. This means that they can blend in with your existing tooth color and give you a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
What Is The Procedure For Getting Gold Inlays?
The procedure for getting gold inlays is similar to the procedure for getting other types of inlays. First, your dentist will drill a small hole into your tooth. Next, they will place the gold inlay into the hole and bond it to your tooth using dental cement. Once in place, your dentist will then polish the inlay so that it blends in with your existing tooth color.
How Long Do Gold Inlays Last?
Gold inlays can last for many years with proper care. However, it is important to remember that gold inlays are not invincible. They can be damaged by biting on hard objects or using your teeth to open packages. In addition, gold inlays can also be stained by certain foods and beverages, such as coffee and tea. If you take good care of your gold inlays, then they should last for many years.
How Are Gold Inlays Placed?
Gold inlays are placed using a similar procedure to other types of inlays. First, your dentist will drill a small hole into your tooth. Next, they will place the gold inlay into the hole and bond it to your tooth using dental cement. Once in place, your dentist will then polish the inlay so that it blends in with your existing tooth color.
What Are The Risks Of Gold Inlays?
As with any dental procedure, there are some risks associated with gold inlays. However, these risks are typically very small. The most common risk is that the inlay may not bond properly to your tooth. This can cause the inlay to become loose and fall out. In rare cases, the inlay may also cause damage to your tooth. If you experience any pain or discomfort after your procedure, be sure to contact your Cherry Creek dentist right away.
What Should I Expect After My Procedure?
After your gold inlays are placed, you should expect to experience some soreness and sensitivity in your teeth. This is normal and should resolve within a few days. In the meantime, you can take over-the-counter pain medication to help relieve any discomfort. You should also avoid chewing on hard foods or using your teeth to open packages. If you have any questions or concerns, be sure to contact your dentist.
