A six-panel color brochure that explains and illustrates the benefits of gold-foil fillings - including biocompatibility, durability and esthetics - is available at no charge from Ivoclar North America.
The brochure discusses the applications of gold foil, pointing out that pure gold is the most biocompatible dental material available. It produces no local tissue reactions or any side effects elsewhere in the body.
The brochure also briefly explains why gold restorations last longer than any other fillings, many lasting as long as 50 years. Gold-foil fillings often can be placed in a way that they don`t show, a technique that is illustrated by an accompanying photograph.
