As far as taking Impressions, the gold tooth is a non-issue. That's part of the beauty of the Invisalign system, the aligners simply fit over your teeth, whatever the surface material of them happens to be.

The only potential conflict is if attachments are needed for your case. If so, bonding one to a gold surface, while possible, can be troublesome/difficult.

With this in mind, possibly your case can be adapted so it can be treated with or without attachments.

After your impressions have been taken and submited to the Invisalign people, they'll create a computer simulation of your treatment plan. Your dentist will have told them about the gold tooth/attachment issue. The Invisalign people will no doubt figure out a way your case can be accomplished.
