Should I get my metal fillings replaced with tooth-colored ones?

Although amalgam fillings don’t look very attractive, consider several factors before replacing them with tooth-colored fillings.

Key takeaways:

– Dentists do not recommend that amalgam fillings be replaced unless they are damaged as it may expose harmful mercury.

– If your amalgam filling is chipped or cracked, your dentist may recommend replacing it with a tooth-colored composite resin filling.

– Tooth-colored fillings are more cosmetically appealing, durable, and can strengthen damaged teeth.

“Talk with your dentist about what condition your filling is in and what the best treatment is.
