CONSUMER ALERT ! Silver fillings, otherwise known as amalgam fillings are made of 50% elemental mercury and constantly release toxic mercury vapor of which 80% is absorbed by the lungs and then distributed through out the body. Amalgam fillings are still widely used, although safe, durable and comparative cost alternatives exist.
