What you should know about fillings

The dental industry has evolved and we typically don’t recommend silver as the filler in tooth decay. We do still offer amalgam fillings and handle each filling on a case by case basis and always do what is best for the patient and their situation. The problem with silver is that it can contain a percentage of mercury. Silver and metal fillings can also expand and contract over time as you expose them to hot and cold temperatures. This can lead to exposed pockets around the filling and the tooth. Food and sugar can then get trapped in these little pockets causing further tooth decay. Tooth-colored restorations composed of resins and/or porcelain are a better alternative to metal fillings in most cases. These types of materials act as an aesthetic filler (who wants a bunch of metal in their mouth) and can actually help strengthen the tooth.
