For Dentists: Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT MATERIALS ARE NOT ACCEPTED?

We do not buy silver colored partials or amalgam.

CAN I EXCHANGE MY PRECIOUS METAL SCRAP FOR COINS AND BULLION?

Yes, we can exchange your dental scrap for coins or bullion provided the amount of valuation is $1500 or more. Otherwise California Sales Tax is assessed.

SHOULD I TRY TO REMOVE ANY TOOTH MATERIAL FROM DENTAL SCRAP?

No. We can evaluate your scrap with tooth material. Your deposit will be paid to you based on our estimate. After assay, we will return with the balance of the remaining value of the white metal as well as any remaining gold not paid by the deposit.

HOW MUCH IS MY DENTAL SCRAP WORTH AND WHAT WILL YOU PAY ME?

The exact price we pay is based on several factors including quality, quantity and the price of gold the day of valuation.

IS THERE A MINIMUM AMOUNT OF SCRAP THAT YOU WILL ACCEPT?

No, we have no minimum.

IF I MAIL LPM MY SCRAP, CAN YOU TELL ME THE VALUE OVER THE PHONE?

Yes. We ask that you include a copy of our shipping form so that we can contact you as soon as the items are evaluated. CLICK HERE for shipping form.

HOW DO YOU DETERMINE THE VALUE?

Our payment is based on the precious metal content, the weight, and the price of the metals on the day we evaluate them.

WHAT IF I’M NOT SATISFIED WITH YOUR OFFER?

You are not obligated in any way to accept our offer. Because most of our business is by referral, we strive to give you the greatest payout and the best possible service every single time. However, if you are not satisfied, call us within five business days and we will return your scrap promptly and free of charge.
