It is well known that mercury is a toxic heavy metal which is detrimental to one’s health. However, there are still many people walking around with mercury-contained dental fillings. Commonly known as amalgam fillings, mercury-contained fillings are typically 50% mercury, joined with silver, copper and tin.
With the potential harmful side-effects of mercury, many are advised to switch to Resin – Composite (White) fillings which are a safer option, and more appealing since they blend with the natural color of your teeth. Additionally, composites require less removal of tooth structure.
