Dr. Goldasich strives to give each of our patients multiple option when possible for dental treatment. Amalgam fillings are an affordable way to restore a tooth that has decay.  Dental amalgam fillings are created by mixing elemental mercury and alloy powder composed mainly of Silver, tin, and copper. Amalgam fillings are sometimes referred to as silver fillings due to its color. ​If your in need of an affordable dental treatment amalgam fillings may be an option four you. All dental treatment results may differ from patient to patient.
