PFM refiners buy dental scraps from individuals and dental offices from all over the country so they could refine the precious metals in it. If you want to make sure that you get the right amount for the dental crowns you send in, know how your dental crowns are valued by PFM refiners.

  • Quantity – Dental refinery has their own process of determining the presence of precious metals in dental scraps. They assess the composition of metals in the crowns and bridges to see what other materials are used alongside gold. This lets them know the exact quantity of gold, palladium, silver and platinum.
  • Purity – Another factor used in determining the value of your dental scraps is the purity of metals in it and the alloy compositions. Since no dental work can be 100% pure gold because it is too soft, the closer it can be to 1005, the better.
