At Gallery Dental, we have many people come to us for the removal of their old, metal mercury fillings. Silver fillings, or amalgam fillings, are made up of an alloy of silver, tin and mercury. The mercury content can make up as much as 50% of the metal alloy.
Although there is a debate on the safety of mercury fillings among dental professionals throughout the world, many people feel that the fillings impact their health and function of the central nervous system. Some people say that they never have problems from their silver fillings while others are tremendously impacted.
