Natural Looking Fillings
There are different reasons for getting fillings. The number one reason is because of cavities that need to be filled in. In some cases, cavities are small enough to be watched. This is the only case where you won’t fill in the cavities since the tooth may have an opportunity to heal on its own. When allowing your cavity to heal, you should avoid acidic drinks, and grinding your teeth. You should also make sure to brush and floss your teeth regularly! When getting fillings, you also may need them because of a tooth fracture, tooth discoloration or to replace old fillings.
There are a few options when going for fillings. One option is to go for Resin fillings. These types of fillings are commonly referred to as “tooth-colored” because of their unique ability to blend in with your teeth! Composite resin fillings are made with acrylic resin which is a type of plastic. This acrylic resin is further enforced with a powdered glass filler. These types of fillings are great because they are strong and durable and require minimal tooth structure removal for a strong application.
Trusted Dentists and Quality Fillings
The most advanced type of filling is CEREC, also known as Ceramic Reconstruction. CEREC is basically a dental restoration method that involves 3D printing of veneers, crowns, fillings, onlays, and inlays. All this is usually done within the same visit. Out of all available materials, CEREC porcelain is the best-looking substitute for natural tooth enamel. It also lasts just about the same amount of time as a natural tooth would last. Dentistry at Vitality Health specializes in both resin fillings and CEREC in Unionville, Markham, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, and Whitchurch-Stouffville, ON, so give us a call today at 647-955-2353 if you have any questions or wish to book an appointment!
When it is determined that you need fillings, resin fillings are usually your best bet since they blend in with your teeth and also last a long time. Composite resin fillings are actually created by using acrylic resin which is a type of plastic. With the use of powered glass filler, these fillings are hardened and will last for a long duration of time.
In the past, many people used amalgam fillings (silver ones) because they were a cost-effective solution over the years compared to other filling materials such as gold. Unfortunately, it is believed that amalgam fillings are unsafe with the potential for mercury exposure. Because of this, it is frowned upon to use amalgam fillings these days.

Single Appointment Porcelain Fillings and Crowns
The strongest and most superior option is the placement of a CEREC porcelain filling. CEREC (CEramic REConstruction) is a dental restoration system that uses CAD/CAM technology to 3D print fillings, crowns, veneers, onlays and inlays onsite in a single appointment.
- Porcelain is the best-looking substitute for natural tooth enamel. It’s the closest to natural enamel of any restorative substance available.
- CEREC porcelain is more resistant to wear compared to resin, wearing at just about the same rate as your natural tooth.
- No impressions. A 3D image of your teeth is taken by an intraoral scanner and used to construct an incredibly accurate virtual 3D model of your teeth. No goo-filled trays!
- Provides a perfect seal between tooth and filling minimizing chances of infection and actually strengthening the tooth.
- Completed from beginning to end in a single appointment.
