Do Not Throw Your Dental Scrap In The Trash

By Lelia Cash

Dental scrap is dental material whose price is higher than the price it would cost to process and recycle it. Such materials may be unused or used materials. Firms dealing in such scrap are available. They usually buy this scrap for purposes of recycling. They usually purchase from the general public, dental practices and laboratories. Majority of the firms can handle all kinds of customers whether big or small in any part of the world.

Many of the dealers have been registered by organizations of repute in this industry. These include The National Association of Dental Laboratories plus International precious metal institute among others. They also have the approval of some organizations involved in regulation of standards in this sector for example EPA, OHS and OSHA and others. They are therefore firms that are trustworthy.

They buy a variety of scrap including damaged, deteriorated or failed silver or gold crowns, bridges and inlays. They also buy PFMs, PFGs and gold partials among other scrap. So, they can buy anything containing gold, platinum, silver and palladium among other materials.

You may contact these firms through their websites. You visit the website and fill out a form asking for a scrap-pack. This pack is free of charge. After you submit the form, they send you a prepaid, secure envelop containing the scrap-pack.

You then put your scrap in this pack and ship it to the dealers. This pack is normally insured fully so you could get compensation if it is lost during shipment. Most of these companies pay for the shipping also. Since most of these scrap-packs contain a bar code or a special tracking number, you can track your shipment via internet.

After your scrap-pack is received, an assessment and valuation of its contents is done based on current market prices. After this valuation a check is sent to you immediately. You are paid the real value of your scrap materials. If you are dissatisfied with the payment for whatever reason, some of the companies may allow you to give back the check in exchange for your scrap materials.

Anybody who has dental scrap should consider selling to dealers instead of throwing them away. Today, the precious metal market is very lucrative. So, these materials may be worth a large amount of cash. Such firms have websites through which customers can contact them. The websites offer details of the services they offer.
