You can replace: Amalgam is a safe and durable choice. Most research finds no relationship between fillings and symptoms of mercury poisoning or other side effects. Advances in modern dental technology now allow the to place tooth colored composite fillings instead of amalgam fillings to restore the natural appearance of the tooth.
