Dentistry/Gold extraction from under caps

Question
How would I get the gold from under my cap that is still attached to the tooth I pulled?

Answer
Generally, the amount of gold underlying the porcelain in a peorcelain fused to metal crown is pretty minimal. There are dental refining companies which will pay for the crown and extract the gold themseves, evaluate it and compensate you for its value. Hit it wit a hammer to break away the porcelain and or tooth, and look online for a dental refiner company.
