Gold has been used in dentistry since ancient times. The Phoenicians, Etruscans, and Romans all utilize gold for restorative and aesthetic dental modifications. Gold is ideal for dental fillings due to its longevity and resilience to wear. Despite a switch towards cheaper fillings, gold alloy still serves as one of the longest lasting and strongest materials used for dental fillings. Gold has been used for aesthetic dental modifications even longer than it has for practical dental applications. In 800 BC, Etruscan women of high classes would often have their front teeth removed and replaced with gold bands bearing replacement teeth. The utilization of gold in decorative dental modifications and additions has continued into modern times.
