Gold is used for inlays - but also for crowns and bridges in the form of special alloys. Gold is a proven, durable and body-compatible solution. Gold inlays are precision work by dentists and dental technicians. Whether durability, accuracy of fit or body compatibility - gold is a proven and in many ways superior material. A gold inlay can last for decades. Each gold inlay is unique.


The all-ceramic inlay is the right alternative for demanding patients. The absolutely accurately fitting ceramic filling produced in the dental laboratory is inseparably bonded to the tooth by a wafer-thin composite layer. The tooth is also protected by the fact that only the diseased tooth substance needs to be removed. This is also possible for larger defects, so that in some cases a crowning can even be avoided.


Tooth-coloured alternatives to amalgam are plastic composites filled with micro-glass particles, which allow perfect aesthetics. This type of restoration is suitable for the front tooth area and for small fillings in the side tooth area. The cost of these fillings is high and the statutory health insurance companies reimburse only a part of the costs. However, the results are excellent in both aesthetic and functional terms.


Amalgam has proven itself as a filling material for tooth damage over many decades due to its unique properties. However, due to its mercury content it has also come under criticism. Health damage caused by amalgam has not yet been scientifically proven. Only patients with kidney damage, mercury allergy sufferers, pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers are concerned about its use. Aesthetically more demanding, more durable and in any case safer are tooth-coloured fillings made of special plastics (composite), ceramic and gold inlays. However, the costs for this are not covered by the statutory health insurance.
