What does dental scrap consist of?

Dental scrap consists of the precious metal materials in dental sweeps, gold, silver, platinum and palladium crowns, bridges as well as porcelain fused to metal (PFM) crowns, inlays, on lays and caps.

Dentists, oral surgeons, and periodontist generate this material through dental extractions and other dental procedures in their work. Precious metals are quite common in dental extractions, and very valuable if collected. Learn more about: What is the value of your dental gold?

What Our Customers Are Saying

“I found working with Core Scientific very easy and rewarding. As a surgical specialist, we extract a large number of hopeless teeth. Many of these teeth have had restorative treatment. The patients, for the most part, do not wish to take them home after extraction. We would simply discard them in medical waste. As overhead continually grows, it is a nice perk to occasionally receive a check for the metal retrieved from teeth extracted in the office. The collection and shipping is easy. I highly recommend this service to any dental office where extractions are regularly performed.”


Barry Levin DMD, Center for Periodontics Jenkintown, PENN
“I discovered core-scientific at an AACD meeting. They answered my questions in detail so I decided to give them a try. I found the reps professional and friendly. I stopped at their booth in Chicago at the mid-winter meeting and again found them in good spirits. I was very happy with my return and would recommend them to others as well as use them again for myself.”
