Do you have scrap dental gold and are curious about its worth? You may not know it but you may have old dental stuff which may contain some precious metals that you can sell and profit from. Old gold teeth fillings, crowns, bridges and other dental accessories may actually be worth a good deal of money if you get the gold melted and extracted from these things. Some of the older ones which have a yellowish tint to it actually contain about 40% of gold which can be either 10 karats or 20 karats depending on how your dentist have made it. It might seem embarrassing to have your dental fillings sent to a jeweler to get the gold out of it but with the increasing demand for this metal, most institutions will likely be favorable about buying it.
Dental gold fillings are usually made with 60% percent metals which have a very high value such as gold and platinum. These can be found particularly on metallic dental accessories but not on the white ceramic types of fillings. So if you are one of those who were lucky enough to get those metallic things in your teeth, you can actually sell them in order to gain money.
What you need to do would be to send your dental fillings or crowns to a dealer which extracts gold from scraps. You can also send them to your dentist if he is interested in getting gold from his former clients. What is interesting is that this metal is now one of the most in-demand in the market which sent dealers to scramble for anything that can possibly contain gold one of which is your dental fixtures.
The value of your gold teeth can be quite significant since the value of gold has recently increased in the market. To get to it however, your dental fillings would need to be refined first in order to get to the pure metal. When you send your dental fillings to the refiner, a charge may be needed for the process which can be done by charging you with the fee or by cutting something out of the cost of your gold. If they perform an analysis of the full composition of your dental filling, that can be an additional charge also but you will get to know what comprises it. The findings will show what else is there in your filling which might be of value also.
Some refiners may provide you with packaging materials for your stuff and be sure to keep a record of what you will send so that you will have proof if something bad happens after you have mailed it. Also, it will be a good proof that you have sent a personal property along. So, if you are thinking of how to get some money in case you ran short of it, you can go through your old stuff and check if you have any teeth fillings or crowns which have been left undisturbed for decades now. They can be a good source of money which you may just be leaving lying idle.
