Here Are the Basic Facts to Understand if You Are Thinking of Selling Your Dental GoldThe widespread practice of selling old gold or silver jewelry is well known to most people, but your old dental work may also be worth something.

Dental alloys

Based on how much precious metal they contain, dental alloys are divided into different categories, and this classification also aids in estimating their final worth. The following categories apply to dental alloys:

  • Precious (high noble)
  • Semi-precious (noble)
  • Non-precious (non-noble)

The most valuable dental alloy classification is precious. It indicates that the alloy contains at least 40% gold and at least 60% high-noble metal (such as gold, platinum, or palladium). Dental gold alloys contain a variety of metal types, including Gold, Silver, Palladium, Chromium, Nickel, Copper, Tin, Platinum, Mercury, Zinc, and Aluminum.

The following dental procedures could involve the use of precious metals: crowns, bridges, caps, onlays, inlays, implants, and partial dentures.

What is the value of my old dentistry work?

The most important factors in assessing the worth of your dental work will be its weight, metal content, and the current market price of the precious metals. Dental metal alloys with varying gold contents, typically ranging from roughly 10-karat to 20-karat gold, are used to create gold crowns and bridges. This indicates that the normal range for dental gold is between 40% and 80% gold.

It’s important to keep in mind that certain crowns may appear to be gold but fact contain little to no gold.

The current price for gold is higher than its every been

It’s important to notice that the price of gold is greater than it has been in years because the value of your dental gold is so heavily reliant on the gold market’s current pricing. Although gold’s worth has been continuously rising for decades, and especially over the past five years, its short-term price can be relatively erratic.
