Using gold or silver in one's mouth

Q: Is it permissible for a Muslim male or female to insert and fix gold, silver or platinum fixture in the mouth?

A: If this is done due to genuine upkeep of one’s oral health as advised by a practitioner then it will be permissible. However, this practice should be avoided for mere beautification and enhancement.
