If an approach to dentistry preserves your natural tooth structure and contributes to long-term oral health, we are dedicated to practicing it in our dental office.
Biomimetic dentistry embraces biomimetics. In other words, this approach to dentistry strives to preserve teeth and restore function by building up a tooth as opposed to cutting it down for a synthetic restoration like a crown or a filling.
Biomimetic dentistry concentrates on keeping your teeth healthy through the ages via innovation, advanced techniques, and skill.
Examples of biomimetic dentistry include:
- Foregoing traditional fillings that can crack in favor of alternatives that help keep your tooth intact—sealing the tooth to prevent bacteria from penetrating.
- As opposed to cutting down a damaged tooth for the traditional dental crown, the biomimetic approach calls for adhesives and building materials to shore up the compromised tooth.
- Reliance on biomimetic fillings to preserve a tooth and lower your risks for root infections and root canal treatments.
Dentists who utilize a biomimetic approach to dentistry may serve patients who are less likely to need crowns, fillings, and root canal treatments because the approach concentrates on technologies that preserve the natural tooth and contribute to the longevity of tooth health.
