I just read on a site that one could remove a tooth from a gold crown by soaking it in cola for 24 to 48 hours. Will try and post results.

I used a heat gun at 500 degrees for 45 seconds and the crown popped off.

MY DENTIST REFUSED TO GIVE ME ALL MY GOLD CROWNS UNLESS I PAID HIM $50.00 FOR STERILIZATION.  THIS HAPPENED IN CALIFORNIA.

IS THIS A STATE LAW?
