Havn't tested that, but how about

$db = (Get-Mailbox -Identity S12345 | Select-Object Database);set-aduser -identity S12345  -description "text $db"

Add a subsequent code line:

$db = (Get-Mailbox -Identity S12345 | Select-Object Database);set-aduser -identity S12345  -description "text $db"
$db = $db.Replace("@{Database=","").Replace("}","")

Better to change like this.
$db = (Get-Mailbox -Identity S12345 | Select-Object -expand Database);set-aduser -identity S12345  -description "text $db"

Thank you for your assistent. Your suggestion does not work. Getting error with replace. I changed to

$db = (Get-Mailbox -Identity S12345 | Select-Object Database) -replace "@{Database="," ";set-aduser -identity S12345 -description "text $db"
