Silver vs. Tooth Colored Filling: What You Should Know
Our cosmetic fillings are safer for your health. This is because they are made of resin or a plastic material. Silver fillings are typically not silver, but a metal alloy comprised of several materials, among them mercury. There have been numerous health warnings regarding the overexposure to mercury, which is why pregnant women are warned to stay away from tuna. While many people believe amalgam fillings are perfectly safe, the data can be contradictory from study to study. If you want to avoid the risks that come with mercury exposure, have tooth-colored fillings placed, or have your existing silver ones replaced, visit our Monmouth County NJ dental office.
