What Is A Silver Filling?

A silver cavity filling is made from a material called dental amalgam. The amalgam consists of many durable metals for a long-lasting restoration, including silver, tin, copper, and elemental mercury. Silver fillings are recommended for repairing the back teeth because they are durable enough to withstand chewing pressures for many years.

Are Silver Fillings Safe?

Yes, silver fillings are safe. The dental amalgam used in silver fillings is a safe, stable, and widely used material. The American Dental Association, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the World Health Organization agree that dental amalgam is a safe and effective for repairing cavities.

How Can I Prevent Cavities?

Be sure to practice good at-home oral hygiene as recommended by your dentist. Brush your teeth twice and floss daily to keep your teeth free of cavity-causing bacteria. You can also use mouth rinse to control plaque build-up.
