Casting procedure introduced by Taggart in1907 has allowed the dentists the capability to produce a wide variety of metal inlays, onlays, crowns, copings, endodontic posts and bridges for many years. Though the cast gold alloy restorations have demonstrated superior durability and fracture resistance as compared to the other types of restorative materials, they have several drawbacks in relation to the technique and time involved in the whole process. The growing development of dental technology could not ignore the lost wax casting procedure. There have been efforts to use the alternatives both in the form of materials, like Composites, Ceramics, Titanium, Al.Oxide, Zr.Oxide & the techniques such as CAD/CAM, Copy milling and Metal-Foil Swaging technique (Korber 1985), to name of few. This paper aims to highlight one of such efforts, the use of sintered gold technique for producing cast restorations.
