Hello to our esteemed doctors and dental aficionados! It’s Alex from Olivia Dental Lab, and today we’re going to explore the world of gold tooth crowns. With centuries of use in the dental industry, gold crowns have proven their worth, but how much do you really know about them? Let’s dive in!

Why Gold Crowns?
Gold crowns have been a staple in dentistry for hundreds of years. Not only are they durable and long-lasting, but they also offer a unique aesthetic appeal. Whether you’re considering them for their decorative allure or their robustness, gold crowns are a choice worth considering.

The Composition:
Gold crowns aren’t just made of gold. They often combine gold with other metals to enhance their strength. Here are the types you might come across:

Non-noble alloy: Contains less than 25% precious metals, including nickel, chromium, and gold.
Noble alloy: Contains 25% precious metal, primarily nickel, chromium, and gold.
High noble alloy: Made from a minimum of 60% precious metals, including gold, platinum, and palladium.

Benefits of Gold Crowns:

Durability: Gold crowns can withstand significant pressure, making them ideal for those who have heavy wear patterns on their teeth.
Cost-Effective: Due to their longevity, replacements are rarely required, making them a cost-effective choice in the long run.
Minimal Wear: Gold crowns cause as much wear on adjacent teeth as natural teeth, making them a good choice for those who grind their teeth or suffer from bruxism.

Pricing Transparency:
At Olivia Dental Lab, we believe in transparency, especially when it comes to pricing. Here’s a breakdown of our gold crown pricing:

Base cost: $40+ per gram
Regular noble: $87 per gram
High noble: $97 per gram
Argelit: $107 per gram
Please note that these prices are based on the market rate. As of September 23, the prices per gram were as listed above. However, they are subject to change based on market fluctuations.

Gold crowns are more than just a luxury; they’re a testament to timeless quality and durability. Whether you’re a dentist looking to offer the best to your patients or someone considering gold crowns for personal use, understanding their benefits and pricing is crucial.
