What We Buy » Dental Gold



Dental gold and dental scrap gold come in the form of extracted gold teeth, crowns, bridges, implants, fillings, grindings and sweepings. Instead of collecting dust in a drawer, take your dental gold to any of our locations for a free valuation and we’ll give you an offer on the spot.


Dental gold is rarely 100% pure gold. While the majority of dental scrap value comes from the gold content, precious metals are mixed in to increase strength and durability. Up to 30% of your dental gold could consist of platinum, palladium and silver. Most gold buyers pay only for the gold content (offering you nothing for the other metals). However, Canada Gold pays you for ALL of the precious metals.

How does scrap dental gold get refined?

The refining process can be difficult, so many dentists (and patients!) turn to Canada Gold’s highly trained staff and state of the art equipment to recycle their scrap gold. Our testing and measuring process has been independently verified by Measurement Canada and is as follows:

  • The material is weighed, characterized, and logged into our system
  • The precious metals are dissolved and separated using state of the art methods
  • Each metal (in its pure form) is weighed to determine its value
  • A detailed report is written for the customer describing the actual quantities of the precious metal recovered and current market metal prices
How much is my dental gold worth?

The price of gold has increased over the years, so you may be surprised how much your dental gold is worth. 

Without the proper equipment it’s difficult to tell how much of your scrap is actually gold and what other precious metals have been used. It’s best to bring your dental gold into a Canada Gold store where our staff can accurately test it for you using industry standard machinery. We offer upfront payouts based on current precious metals market prices.

Do you pay for just the gold content or for the other precious metals too?

Unlike other gold buyers, we pay you for the whole lot!

Is there a minimum quantity I need to bring in?

No. If you don’t have enough material to make up a refining lot (typically 400g) we can purchase smaller amounts on-the-spot in our offices.
