Silver amalgam fillings have been in use for decades. The various metals used in these fillings often includes mercury, which is supple but toxic. If you are among the millions of people who has silver fillings, you should consider replacing them with metal-free tooth-colored fillings.

Why Are Silver Fillings Harmful?

Mercury is an extremely poisonous substance that certainly has no place in your mouth. Auto-immune diseases, chronic and mental illnesses, and neurological issues are some of the effects of mercury exposure. Daily wear and tear of your fillings can further expose you to toxic mercury intake and put you and your health at risk. Several European countries have identified the risks of silver amalgam fillings and have since banned them.

Aesthetic Metal-Free Bonding:

Even if your silver amalgam fillings raise no concern, no filling is permanent. It is important to replace any type of dental filling every so often as they are subject to wear and tear. The most progressive, natural-looking form of filling is aesthetic metal-free bonding. This form of dental restoration fully restores appearance and functionality of the tooth, whether you are replacing harmful old fillings or acquiring new ones.
