The jury is out on whether silver fillings, also called amalgam fillings, are a health risk. Amalgam fillings consist of a mixture of metals including silver, zinc, copper, tin and mercury. The American Dental Association’s official position is that the level of mercury in these fillings is safe for people. Other organizations and researchers, on the other hand, believe that any level of mercury is unsafe. At Hagerty Dentistry, Lansing dentist Dr. John Hagerty and his team are not taking any chances. We practice mercury-free dentistry for the sake of your smile and your overall health.
