No, there certainly is not. In fact, gold is probably still the best material to have in your mouth.
- It won’t crack.
- It won’t wear down the opposing teeth.
- It fits around the tooth exceptionally well.
So, why don’t people do them these days?
Here are the Two Reasons:
- The Look. People simply don’t like the look of gold in their smile.
- The Cost. With the price of gold through the roof gold crowns are about 40% more then the white crowns.
They still can be done upon request. And, any dentist can still make them for you. They are just kind of a dying breed.
