"Some" indication of the amount of silver your kitten will exhibit can be (sort-of) "determined" at birth. This is noted by the amount of silver on the face.  The more silver on face, the lighter he/she should be as a mature cat. The darker the face, the darker your cat should be at maturity.

The photos below are all the same kitten (black/silver). The silver really shows through and we see the STRIKING & AMAZING Black/silver!

Both of these parents are black silver. I am amazed at the variety of colors they produce! But, almost all of their kittens will have silver.

Here is a snap shot from our black SMOKE. Very nicely shows 2 tone hairs. The pigment is only on the tips and the underside has no pigment!
