For patients

Do you have an old piece of unwanted jewelry or old precious metal dental filling or crowned tooth? 

Even though dental crowns and bridges look like white teeth made of porcelain, they usually have a frame work right below the porcelain, made of a combination of nobel metals, containing a percentage of yellow gold, silver, palladium and platinum. Other metals frequently used in dentistry are titanium, chromium, zinc, nickel, aluminum, iron, tin or copper.

 

We can make sure every penny of it’s worth goes to a good cause. We’ll send you a pre-paid envelope. You can simply put your donation into the envelope and we will take care of the rest. We can also send you a gift aid donation receipt and update you on the good causes your money is going to help through our newsletter.

Underprivileged children are a huge problem in many of our communities around London and other parts of the UK. “When we realised that patient crowns were being sold to scrap companies that would collect these in exchange for cash, we thought, why not maximise the value of these crowns rather than only receiving a % of their value and why keep the profit when this crown belonged to a patient? Speaking to our patients at the clinic, we realised that the vast majority would be delighted to contribute to our community by donating the costs of a crown in a tooth, when this has had to be removed. One crown won’t make a difference to anyones pocket, but a disruption of this scrap crown metal market could transform some of these children’s lives.”
