Amalgam

A mixture of finely powdered silver, a small quantity of copper, and mercury which forms a plastic material used to fill a tooth. Once tightly packed into the prepared tooth, the material is then carved into the required shape. It will set within a matter of hours to form an extremely durable, and long lasting filling. This is often referred to as a "silver amalgam filling".
