EWWWWW gross…You take gold teeth?
Dazzled by the bull market in gold, people are digging through drawers for old gold dental caps they saved years ago and selling them at prices that would make the tooth fairy blush.
Instead of hanging on to the pieces as souvenirs, many are turning them over to pawnbrokers, coin shops and specialized firms that buy “dental gold,” hoping to take a bite out of the metal’s historic run to $1500 an ounce.
You may have an old crown or bridge tucked away in a drawer or box somewhere, possibly even more than one. If you do, you might be surprised to learn that there’s a market for this kind of scrap dental work
A scrap crown’s value is simply based on how much precious metal it contains, which is a function of both its size (weight actually) and the type of alloy that’s been used to make it. Determining the weight and the type of alloy used to make it adds a lot of variability to this equation.
Dental alloys are divided into categories based on their level of precious metal content. They are: a) Precious (high noble), b) Semi-precious (noble) and c) Non-precious (non-noble).
