ARE SILVER FILLINGS SAFE?
Yes. Silver, or amalgam fillings, have been determined to be safe by the American Dental Association, the Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, the FDA, and many other organizations. However, there are alternative materials for your dental fillings that may provide you with more aesthetically pleasing results, including composite (tooth-colored) resin, porcelain, and gold. We invite you to discuss your options with our dentists to determine the best option for you.
