From my understanding, the large ones will need to be replaced with crowns, which are pretty expensive. I had 10 amalgams of varying sizes, but most very large. To get them all removed and replaced I am looking at about $11,000. A crown runs at $900 to $1200, a composite filling at $150-$300. I'm in Oregon, and I did shop around a little but was limited to dentist who practice safe amalgam removal in my area. So, I compared two dentist.
It continues to tick me off that this stuff isn't covered by health insurance.
