Gold Tooth Fillings for Men

By Mufti Ebrahim Desai


Q.) My dentist has said that I have 2 ‘risk’ teeth, which means that they are at risk of breaking off and being permanently lost, because there is too much filling in these 2 teeth. The pressure of the filling may cause both the teeth to break off. The only way the teeth (which are the important chewing teeth) can be saved is to remove the fillings and replace them with gold inlays (which means lining the inside of the teeth with gold). Is this permissible for males? Please advice.

A.) It is permissible to fill the inside of the teeth with gold for males as well. And Allah Ta’ala Knows Best.
