What you should know about dental fillings
The dental industry has evolved and we typically don't recommend silver/amalgam as the filler in tooth decay. One reason for this is amalgam fillings contain trace amounts of mercury. While the ADA has done extensive research and has deemed amalgam restorations safe and the levels of mercury found to not be harmful to patients, we understand this concern from patients. For patients wanting mercury-free dental fillings, we typically recommend resin or porcelain.
Tooth-colored restorations composed of resins and/or porcelain act as an aesthetic filler and can actually help strengthen the tooth. If you would like to replace your amalgam fillings for aesthetic reasons, please contact our office.
