For more than a century, cast gold restorations have been the reference in restorative dentistry in terms of longevity and predictability.

Still today, clinical evidence is showing us outstanding results using this type of restoration.  The technique developed by Richard V. Tucker, implemented by many practitioners worldwide has proven to be particularly effective, predictable and of remarkable beauty.
