Imaging reflective surfaces like gold is often difficult with intra-oral scanners. In this video, you can see how the whole occlusal surface of the gold crown is captured with the Medit i500 and the contact area as well. It is certainly not flawless, but it works great. No powder or dusting was used here and no animals were harmed in the process either. Take a look at how nicely visible the margin is on the mesial of the second molar!
