Metal Fillings Removed Due To Decay

Metal fillings, also called amalgam fillings contain mercury and can also react to temperature changes by contracting and expanding in cold or heat.  This could allow leaks and cracks which could lead to tooth decay under the filling.  While we don't recommend replacing all the metal fillings in your mouth there might be certain situations where decay has formed around the filling and replacement is recommended.
