Gold body parts are on my mind for another reason. This spring I cracked a molar, which required a root canal and a crown. Because the affected tooth is the last one on my upper jaw and can’t be seen when I talk or smile, my dentist recommended a gold crown instead of a porcelain one. He was worried that I wouldn’t want a gold tooth. I think he got more worried when I asked if I could have it engraved. What?! I can’t have gold that’s not stylish!
