Metal dental amalgam fillings have been commonly used in dentistry for decades, however, with recent studies proving the dangers of the fillings due to toxins, we are now replacing amalgam fillings daily. Amalgam fillings are made with a material that’s roughly 43-54 percent mercury, giving them a silver appearance.
