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