Long considered the finest material for restorative dentistry, gold is often (unfortunately) omitted from treatment plans as a viable option in today’s modern dental practice. In this 90-minute presentation, Dr. Richard G Stevenson will focus on techniques to produce predictable precision gold castings that conserve and protect tooth structure. Special attention will be placed on preparation designs to maintain aesthetics, simplify clinical and laboratory procedures and allow practitioners to provide restorations of the highest quality.

  • Decide when cast gold is the best option to satisfy the patient’s value profile.
  • Learn how to diagnose the need for extra-coronal vs intra-coronal restorations.
  • Complete a step-by-step technique to produce castings of remarkable precision.
  • Understand the use of auxiliary retention and how it saves tooth structure.

I love the head fake in the beginning of the lecture. I can confirm almost all dentists who ask me to restore their teeth want gold. What does that tell you?
