Amalgam Fillings

Amalgam fillings (silver coloured metal alloy) are traditionally used to successfully repair a tooth in the event of damage or cavity. This well-established, quick and highly safe procedure helps to save a tooth by restoring look and function for the long-term.

Amalgam fillings have been used for over 150 years and are extremely hardwearing. Amalgam fillings are a mixture of mercury and various other metals including silver, tin and copper.

They are particularly effective in the back teeth, which are exposed to heavier chewing forces.
