Should I remove my silver fillings?

“Silver”, or amalgam, fillings have been placed by dentists throughout the world for a long, long time. Many patients have silver fillings that have been in their mouth since they were young children! Dr. Abramowski does not recommend removing an amalgam restoration as long as the restoration remains strong and is not causing any problems. If a restoration begins to wear or chip, or if the patient wants to improve the look of their teeth, Dr. Abramowski may recommend replacing the failing amalgam with a white filling or another restorative option. If you have any questions about your silver fillings, make sure to ask Dr. Abramowski or the team at Southside Dental Center about all your options.
