This virus is now considered to be a transmitted through community contact. Please follow these guidelines to reduce your risk:

Silver Amalgam Fillings from

Chelmsford Family Dentistry

Gold and silver amalgam fillings have been used by dentists for nearly two centuries, however in recent years some critics have argued that they are unsafe and should not be used because they may cause mercury poisoning or other problems and are damaging to the environment.


Safe and Effective

The FDI World Dental Federation, as well as dental associations and dental public health agencies around the world are of the opinion that silver amalgam fillings are safe and effective. Consumer Reports magazine has suggested that opponents of amalgam fillings are using pseudoscience to frighten patients into choosing more expensive treatment options.


Some of the advantages offered by silver amalgam fillings over resin cosmetic fillings are:

  • Durability– Amalgam fillings typically last twice as long as resin composite fillings.
  • Convenience– Amalgam fillings are easier to place than composite fillings. They are also much more tolerant of contamination caused by blood or saliva.
  • Price– Amalgam fillings typically cost 20% to 30% less than resin composite fillings.


We will be happy to address any questions or concerns you might have about amalgam dental fillings. Please contact our office for more information or to schedule a consultation appointment.
