Although Ivory is less used today than in the past, it is still a valuable material utilized for art and manufacturing purposes. Quality ivory repair work must be accomplished with skill based on experience and proven methods.
Ivory has been utilized for a variety of practical and aesthetic purposes over the years. At one time it was used exclusively for items such as piano keys, buttons of various types, billiard balls and other decorative pieces. More recently the use of ivory has been replaced by synthetic materials such as various plastics in order to simulate the look and feel of ivory as close as possible.
Repair work on genuine ivory pieces is best performed by an accomplished and experienced professional. The cost of replacing ivory instead of performing ivory repair work may motivate the owner of an ivory piece to have it repaired.
