Amalgam fillings, also known as silver or metal fillings, date back to the early 1800’s. Amalgam is a combination of mercury, silver, tin, and copper. The majority of this combination of metals consists of mercury.
The continued use of amalgam fillings has become a controversial subject in the world of dentistry. Many dentists and dental associations, including the American Dental Association, believe that the use of amalgam fillings is safe. There are dentists and physicians that believe that amalgam fillings pose a safety concern for both patients and the environment.
At Old Milton Dental, we value both the safety of our patients and the wellbeing of our environment and therefore, have implemented the use of mercury-free fillings into our Alpharetta practice. Mercury-free fillings are tooth-colored which means they blend well with your natural tooth structure. Mercury-free fillings are also durable and long lasting when taken care of.
