Conservative gold preps wear well and typically last longer in the mouth than composite or amalgam materials. Gold is much more fracture-resistant than porcelain restorations.
Tucker technique gold restorations are regarded as the “Gold Standard of Dentistry.”
Yes, we live in fast times and a very media-driven world, but one thing has not changed, and that is that no dental restoration has yet surpassed the high standard set by gold.
Aesthetics are highly value today ... however, not everything should be driven by aesthetics, and not every patient desires aesthetics over function. The Academy of Richard V. Tucker Study Clubs is dedicated to providing education for dentists who seek the highest level of training and expertise in restoring teeth with the most conservative, long-lasting cast gold restorations. The conservative approach leads to beautiful restorations that show little if any gold while still being durable and exceptionally well sealed.
