Does dental gold contain real gold?

If the dental gold has a yellow gold color to it, it often contains real gold. Silver colored dental work may contain “white gold” or have other precious metals, such as platinum or silver. However, this silver colored dental work may have no metals of real value, and it is difficult to differentiate between the two.

What is the purity of dental gold?

The purity of dental gold varies, but 16 karats is commonly used. 16 karats is approximately 67% gold, with the rest being other metals. (You can read more about gold purity here)

How much is dental gold worth?

The value of dental gold is determined by its weight, its gold purity, and the current price of gold. While a gold crown may only contain small fractions of an ounce of gold, that is enough to often make it worth selling rather than throwing away.
