Amalgam fillings are not bonded to the tooth, which requires more removal of healthy tooth structure when compared to composite fillings. Since silver mercury fillings are not bonded to the tooth, tiny fractures can start to form from chewing, and the filling may leak. Bacteria can leak underneath the filling and cause recurrent decay.

It is important to consult with your dentist regarding the types of materials used for fillings, as each type of restoration varies on a case-by-case scenario.
