I am wondering if I can get gold crowns on dental implants or if they have to be white. I pretty much consider myself to be vintage old school and I already have 2 teeth with gold crowns that I got 20 years ago and they still look good. I like my gold crowns. If I get implants for 2 missing teeth can the crown be gold? Theodore
Theodore – Gold crowns can be placed on dental implants. Gold crowns are not as common as they use to be, but they are quite durable. Because of the contrast between the color of the metal and the color of natural teeth, most people prefer them on molar teeth.
The price of gold has increased significantly since you received your current gold crowns. You can expect that increase to be reflected in the cost of new gold crowns.
Speak with an implant dentist about your preference for gold crowns on implants. He or she will let you know your options, as well as the pros and cons.
