Amalgam (silver) fillings are done by 75% of dentists. We strive for the best quality care so we refuse to use them because they will not bond to your tooth. Mercury fillings allow decay to occur between the filling and the tooth itself. Most materials used in amalgam fillings are made up of Tin, Silver, Mercury, and Nickel.
We have worked with many patients who have one or more amalgam fillings that have been in their mouth for several years now. We are often asked whether these silver-colored fillings are safe due to the mercury content or not and if an amalgam filling can or should be replaced. We do not to use such fillings and replace it by offering other solutions. Mercury fillings are usually done in order to effectively replace the portion of the tooth lost to decay and damaged tooth. Amalgam fillings are usually done by using different materials, including- Tin, Nickel, Mercury, Silver, which sometimes can affect the health and wellness of the people.

It may happen when the silver filling pulls away from the tooth by leaving a space can easily attack by bacteria and cause decay. If it is ignored, a root canal is the only solution to eliminate this. We offer composite restoration services which help in removing the metal fillings using proven materials.
