Many people don't realize that what dentists call silver fillings are actually made of an amalgam of mercury and silver and that they are about 50 percent mercury. It isn't surprising that people are nervous about having mercury, which is toxic, in their mouths. Studies have shown that small levels of mercury vapor are released from these fillings during chewing.

Dr. Cabe feels that there are many advantages to using white composite fillings for the teeth. They bond to the tooth, making it stronger. Amalgam fillings conduct hot and cold, which can be irritating to the teeth—composite fillings insulate the teeth. Composite fillings also can be made to match the tooth color. And, of course, they contain no mercury.
