Dental Amalgam (Silver Fillings)

Most people recognize dental amalgams as metal or silver fillings. Dental amalgam is a small mixture of mercury, silver, tin and copper. Mercury, which makes up nearly 50 percent of the compound, is used to bind the metals together and to provide a strong, hard, durable filling. Dental amalgam fillings are durable and the least expensive to fill a cavity.
