The ruling on removing gold teeth from the deceased
Question:

If a person dies and he has gold teeth, should they be removed from him if he owes a debt - even though removing them may not be performed with ease - or should they be left if he does not owe a debt?
Answer:

If a person dies and he has gold or silver teeth, and removing them may not be done with ease, there is no harm in leaving them. It makes no difference if the person owes a debt or not. It is possible that he may be dug up after some time and the teeth may be taken for his heirs or (to pay) a debt. However, it if is easy to remove them, it is obligatory to do so,because they are wealth that should not be wasted if one has the ability (to save them).
