I think this is a recent change, but my amalgam fillings have turned black. Quite possibly from the food coloring in a "peach tea" I started drinking over a year ago. I can't afford to have them replaced with composite right now, but would like to know if there is any way to polish them or turn them back to a silver-like color until I can get them replaced.

I want to add that it's funny, I used to use toothpaste to clean silver jewelry, but it's not doing that to my "silver" fillings.
