Oral Piercing Corrosion?

I've been looking into getting an oral piercing, (whatever, they're gross, unsanitary, blahblah). I have a metal filling in my mouth. If I get an oral piercing, I would have two dissimilar metals in an electrolyte solution (saliva.) Am I correct in believing that, since steel is pretty stable, my tooth filling would be corroded? Has anyone with an oral piercing and a metal filling ran into this problem? I know that bioplast and quartz jewelry is available, but I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that those are not used as initial jewelry. I can't find anything on the net addressing this problem. Am I pretty much s.o.l. with getting an oral piercing? So I'm open to hearing any information anyone can offer! Thanks!

    They are dissimilar metals but the stud is stainless steel, and so is not reactive. I am sure that if there was a problem it would have been raised many years ago. Similarly dentures or braces can have metal in them, and it is stainless steel, and cause no problem with amalgam fillings.
