Are silver fillings safe?

Amalgam fillings are not placed at our office, but that doesn’t mean that the silver in your mouth isn’t healthy. We don’t replace silver fillings unless they are broken, structurally unsound or have recurrent decay. This material is not utilized at our office because it expands with moisture contamination putting unhealthy pressure on your tooth. This can show in the form of fracture lines, chipping or breaking.
