I need my first dental filling, but my dentist just does silver fillings. I’ve done some research and I don’t want any mercury in my mouth. Where can I get a filling that doesn’t contain any?

I’m surprised your dentist only does the silver amalgam fillings. Most dentists do both amalgam and composite fillings these days. But, not yours I guess. Composite fillings, also known as whilte fillings, are completely mercury free.
The fastest way to find a dentist who can give you a mercury free filing is to look for a holistic dentist. They will never put in anything that contains mercury into your mouth.
