A 43-year-old member asked:

Is there a guaranteed way to remineralize teeth and push out your amalgam fillings?

No: Currently there in no way remineralize a tooth that already as a filling in such a way that the filling will no longer be needed.
Dr. Ed Friedlander
Pathology 45 years experience
Thank you Dr. Schneider for telling the truth. If someone has been sold something on the promise that the teeth will grow back as they were before they were filled, they would do well to phone the local prosecuting attorney.

No way: Teeth do not repair themselves in such a manner.

There is none: Ther are no way for that to happen, you need to have your amalgam fillings replaced with flouride releasing tooth colored fillings that makes your teeth stronger and healthier...

Tooth regeneration?: Guaranteed or not guaranteed: unfortunately not. Wouldn't that be nice? Perhaps one day (although i wouldn't hold my breath waiting) not currently. You can have your amalgam fillings replaced with tooth colored composite fillings if you so desire. They look a lot better.
