shipping containers:

a variety of packaging options offered

At Cora Refining, we are dedicated to making the dental scrap refining process as easy as possible for dentists and dental labs. We've designed seven different packaging options to suit all of your shipping needs; from envelops to canister, drums to jars, Cora Refining has a solution for every type of shipment. For added convenience, we've compiled a simple, easy to use, online form to request shipping containers.

Regrettably, Cora can no longer provide free shipping and materials for a single crown. We will still process one if you send it, but we can no longer pay for the shipping expenses. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
