How to Sell Dental Gold in Seattle

Sell Dental Gold in Seattle

Gold has been used in dentistry for many decades, often being used to create crowns for damaged teeth. While it’s less used nowadays, many people have gold crowns — and they can be quite valuable! 

But what can you do with dental gold in Seattle — or other scrap gold, for that matter? It’s an odd thing to sell, to be sure. Here’s what you need to know.

Selling Dental Gold in Seattle

If you’re in the Seattle area, the easiest way to sell dental gold is to stop by Bellevue Rare Coins. We have locations in Bellevue, Issaquah, Lynnwood, and Tacoma. Drop-ins are welcome, and you can schedule an appointment if you prefer. 

Our friendly staff will examine the scrap gold, weigh it, test its purity, and then offer you a cash payment. The value of your item will mostly be based on the weight and purity of the gold it contains. 

Once you are given an offer, you can walk out in minutes with check or cash in hand. Or, if you’d rather not sell, that’s okay too — our offers are always no-obligation, and our staff will never pressure you to sell.

Selling Dental Gold Outside of Seattle

If you’re not a Seattle-area resident, there are a few other ways to sell your dental gold. 

  • Local gold buyers in your area. Just make sure you research and find a company with good customer reviews. Some gold buyers pay much less than your items are actually worth!
  • Local coin shops. Many coin shops buy scrap gold, but not all do — so you may wish to call ahead to see if they do. 
  • Online buyers. There are also some online gold buyers out there. With these companies, you mail in your item(s) for assessment, then they mail you a check. It’s very important to choose a reputable business to work with, and you may also wish to purchase insurance for the package when you mail it (in case it’s lost in the mail). 

Pawn shops are another option, but this should be a last resort. Pawn shops usually pay less than your gold is worth, so you won’t get the best deal. 

How Much is Dental Gold Worth?

On average, a gold crown might be worth around $40 to $100+, depending on its size and purity. 

The value of a piece of dental gold is based on its weight (in grams) and its purity (in karats). Dental gold is never pure (24 karat) gold, because that would be too soft. Instead, it’s usually an alloy, meaning it’s gold mixed with another metal. 

When a gold buyer examines a gold crown, they will test its purity and weigh it to find its approximate value. 

The value will also vary depending on the current price of gold, which is influenced by current market conditions.
