What is the real failure rate of a 1 tooth permanent dental bridge? Is it worth the cost?

I have 4 unit old dental bridge made of porcelain fused to high noble metal. Approximately. How many grams  and the type of gold they use in it. ?

Varies: No way for me to tell. The high noble is usually 54% gold with other metals such as palladium. The weight can only be determined by removing the porcelain. It varies depending on the laboratory design . If you request a mailer from garfield refining, andmail it in. They will extract the precious metals and send you money.
