what is a mercury/silver filling?
It is a silver/grey filling that is usually placed in the molar and premolar teeth. It consists of a mixture of different metals namely,
Mercury – 50%
Silver – 28%
Tin – 14%
Copper – 8%
As you may notice, 50% of the filling consists of mercury.
The Mercury Problem
A single dental amalgam filling with a surface area of only 0.4cm is estimated to release as much as 15 micrograms of mercury per day primarily through mechanical wear and evaporation …

Our vision of Systemic and Holistic Dentistry
Dentistry suggests inevitably attention to detail: Fillings and crowns should match optimally. Good dentistry must, in addition, apply to the mechanical claim of a chewing tool. Both aspects lure to concentrate on the narrow-minded area of teeth and to put the mechanical aspects of dentistry as an important issue.
If mercury fillings are so bad for you why aren't they banned?
The governments of Norway, Sweden, and Denmark already banned the use of mercury fillings in dentistry back in 2009. Germany and Canada have limited their use for pregnant women and France, Finland and Austria have recommended that alternative dental materials be used for pregnant women.
In the Uk, we are still allowed to use mercury fillings. Do these other countries know something we don’t? Makes you think.
Should I get my mercury filling removed?
Mercury vapor is continuously emitted from mercury fillings, which means that you are directly exposed to mercury every day. The output of mercury vapor can be intensified by the number of fillings present and other activities associated with the human mouth, such as chewing, teeth grinding and the consumption of hot liquids. Studies repeatedly demonstrate that even low levels of mercury cause measurable adverse health effects.

Composite White fillings
A tooth-coloured resin and glass mixture used to restore decayed or broken teeth. Composites are also used for cosmetic improvements of the smile by changing the color of the teeth or reshaping disfigured teeth.
Composite Inlays or Onlays
Composite inlays and onlays are a good choice for people with tooth decay which is too far advanced for a filling but not serious enough for a crown.
A porcelain onlay is a custom-made and shaped insert that perfectly fits inside of a prepared tooth. It is securely bonded to replace the damaged part of the tooth
A ceramic bridge is similar to a conventional type of bridge in that it is comprised of a false tooth (pontic) and a couple of crowns which act as an anchor for the false tooth.
