We deal with Dentists from all over the UK and parts of Europe.
Once your precious metal bearing material is in our possession, your consignment can be tracked from start to finish and our work site is fully insured for your peace of mind.
To determine the true value of your materials, a detailed and comprehensive analysis is essential. At Bankfield Refining Group we can analyse your materials to give you a full breakdown of the precious metal content of your consignment. On top of this, we use a government licensed assaying company to confirm our results. Thus providing us with the necessary certification required to ensure that you receive the best possible settlement for your precious metals.
There are two options available to dentists wishing to sell their dental scrap:
You can allow us to perform non-destructive analysis upon your waste crowns and bridges using XRF technology. This method utilises the latest analytical equipment to ascertain the value of your scrap. This ensures that you receive a much more accurate payment for your dental scrap than you would from any company that purchases your dental scrap on-the-road. Customers are always welcome to bring their scrap into our analytical department to see first hand how the process works. Due to the non-destructive nature of this option, your waste crowns and bridges can be returned to you if you are not 100% happy with your valuation.

Individual Melt and Assay. The processing time of an individual Melt and Assay for dental scrap is 72 hours. This option offers the ultimate in accuracy.
Your scrap consignment is placed inside a crucible and heated at temperatures exceeding 1600 degrees Celsius. Copper, borax and oxidisers are added to the melt to help remove impurities and bind the metal content into a homogenous form.
The molten metal is then poured into a casting mould to form a bar. Once cooled we can take samples from the bar to ascertain a percentile of each metal that is present. Using these percentages along with the overall weight of the bar, we can calculate the total market values of each of the metals contained.
