Hi. My dentist says I have several fillings that need to be replaced. I'm not experiencing any problems with them. Why would they need to be replaced?

It is unusual that several fillings need to be replaced at the same time, but it is possible. However, if he wants to replace them with resin just because they are silver amalgam, I would immediately find another dentist.

Fillings are replaced when they break, when the edge deteriorates and they leak, when there is decay around them, or when they stain and the appearance is objectionable to the patient.

If there is any issue or as Dr. Kim Henry told if you have any issue regarding the filling then it need to be replaced else you should see another dentist and consult with him.
