We Pay for ALL of the precious metals in your Dental Scrap: Gold, Platinum, Palladium, and Silver!
A standout in a tarnished industry, Vancouver Gold’s refining and settlement approach offers the dental community an innovative, efficient alternative.
Dental offices across the country collect scrap dental gold and precious metals in several different forms. Extracted gold teeth, old crowns, and bridges; grindings and sweepings all hold value in the scrap material which can contain gold, platinum, palladium, and silver. The process of refining this material can be very difficult so many dentists simply keep their scrap “dental gold” in a safe place, but never turn it into anything of value. Vancouver Gold has a highly trained team and state of the art equipment to handle the recycling of your dental scrap.
While the majority of the value of dental scrap comes from the gold content, up to 30% of the precious metal content is made up of platinum, palladium and silver. Most Gold Buyers will pay for only the gold content (and give you nothing in return for the platinum, palladium, and silver content). Vancouver Gold pays for ALL of the precious metals in your lot!
How We Refine Scrap Dental Gold
- The material is weighed, characterized, logged into our system and the customer is notified that the material was received.
- State of the art methods are used to dissolve the metal. Through a selective process each metal is removed separately and each of the precious metals (in pure form) is weighed to determine the amount due to the customer.
- A detailed report is written for the customer describing the actual quantities of the precious metal recovered, the market metal prices, and refining terms.
