Crown Gold Exchange buys your Dental Gold

Table of Contents

Do you have a gold filling? Could you use some extra cash? We have good news. If you live in the Southland, Crown Gold Exchange can offer you top dollar for your gold fillings, as well as gold teeth, crowns, or grills. For ten years now, we’ve grown in reputation as a trusted buyer of gold and other precious metals in Southern California, and purchasing dental gold is a big reason why.

Gold fillings were popular through the late 1900’s, and were first used in the mid-1800’s. Gold was preferred by dentists because it is malleable, easy to work with, and doesn’t oxidize or tarnish. Gold teeth usually last around 20 years before needing to be replaced.

After twenty years, the patient usually learns that their dental gold is worth far more than it did when they had the procedure done. That means that they are in a position to cash in on their gold as an investment! To do that, you need a buyer. And if you want the best offer, you need a buyer you can trust: One who knows what they are doing and how to get you the most money.

Why People Might Want to Sell their Dental Gold

In most cases, people are not always eager to part with their gold fillings. To do so means at least one expensive dental procedure – to remove the gold, and then to add another product to fill the space that the gold occupied. But given how gold has appreciated over the years, the patient often finds value in taking it out and bringing it to a buyer.

People usually have the gold removed for one of two reasons:

1. You want cash

If you bring us gold – in any form – we’re gonna make an offer on it, because we value our customers and want to help. And yes, we also do it because we deal in gold!

2 It’s time to Remove the Gold

If the piece that the dentist installed twenty years ago is at the end of its useful life, then it needs to be replaced. As long as you are having it taken out, you might as well sell it for cash. Be sure to ask your dentist for the gold after it is removed. Then bring it to a trusted buyer, like the professionals at Crown Gold Exchange. We can offer you the most money for it.

At Crown Gold Exchange, we hire and train only the best employees who can accurately assess the value of your gold and silver. This accurate measurement ensures that we can get value for our purchase.

What you Need to Know about Selling Dental Gold

Your dentist removes your gold tooth, crown, or filling. We don’t have the ability to remove your gold. Always ask your dentist to give you the gold after it is removed so that you can cash it in.

Dentists use gold for making crowns, bridges and of course, gold grills. They don’t use pure 24k gold in these fillings. Dental gold is typically around 16-karat in quality, with a mix of silver, copper, and zinc. Is it worth it to sell a gold tooth? Definitely! One gold tooth can range from 40-$100, and a bridge can be worth several hundred dollars.

Another type of valuable tooth is a “porcelain fused to metal” tooth (PFM Crown). This is when the precious metal is underneath the porcelain. In this product, they use not only gold, but platinum and palladium as well. The gold content is closer to 8-karat, with 2 karat worth of palladium or platinum. The bottom line: They are worth cashing in.

Just like the other kind of gold you cash-in, the amount you get paid depends on the price of gold, the weight and purity. At Crown Gold Exchange, we routinely purchase all precious metals. So we can give you value for the platinum and palladium content of your dental pieces as well.

Our Process for Buying Gold

When you bring your gold to one of our nine locations in the Southland, we provide a simple buying process to protect you and your valuables during the selling process. When you walk in, one of our friendly buyers greets you and escorts you to their desk to inspect your item. During this process, it never leaves your sight. If we require any tools to measure your item, we have them on-hand.

To weigh your item, we use scales that are certified and licensed by the State of California Department of Weights and Measures. Our use of industry standard tools is a big reason why we can offer you the very best price; it gives both parties confidence in the exact amount of the material. After we have determined exactly how much gold is present in your item, we check the spot price of gold at that very moment, and make you an offer. If you accept, you then choose one of our secure payment methods, and we issue payment immediately. No waiting around.

Remember, the professionals at Crown Gold Exchange have one main goal: To get you the most money for your item. Our employees do not earn a commission on purchases, so there is no uncomfortable haggling or negotiation. We make you a no-nonsense offer, and leave the decision to you.

What Precious Metals do we Purchase?


We accept gold of any form or purity. We buy 8-karat, 10-karat, 14-karat, 18-karat, 22-karat, 24-karat, or anything else. We routinely purchase gold in the form of bars, bullion, jewelry and even gold plating (e.g. watches or flatware). Occasionally our customers bring us luxury pieces made by top designers such as Cartier, Tiffany, Rolex, Patek Philippe and others. Items made by top names in the gold industry typically fetch a higher price because of their superior quality.

Other Materials

If you happen to be in possession of other precious metals, such as silver, platinum, or palladium, we have the ability to make you an offer on your material. Our process is much the same; we weigh your item, check the spot price, and make an offer. We also have the ability to assess the value of gemstones, including diamonds, emeralds, and others. We can also make offers on other valuable secondary-market items, such as designer handbags, memorabilia, or any other collectible item with secondary value, provided we can identify a market and determine its value.

The professionals at Crown Gold Exchange remain committed to providing a high standard of customer service.
