What is Biomimetic Dentistry?
Translated literally, biomimetic dentistry means to copy what is life-like. Nature has provided the most successful and ideal properties to our natural teeth. When restoring damaged, broken, and decayed teeth, the goal is to return the tooth to its original strength, function, and esthetics. Biomimetic dentistry accomplishes all of this in a conservative, strong, and attractive approach.
Why is it so important?
Tooth preservation and dental conservation lie at the heart of biomimetic dentistry.
Biomimetic dentistry replicates the strength, function, and aesthetics of natural teeth by replacing only damaged, decayed, and broken tooth structure. The principle employs techniques and materials that provide a perfect balance of nature, art and science.
Teeth move, bend and have physical dynamics of force that must be accounted for while re-making the tooth with nature as our guide. Much of the amputation of tooth structure can be eliminated with modern science. We can say that tooth preservation and dental conservation lie at the heart of biomimetic dentistry.
The economic implications of not needing the advanced, invasive care seen in traditional (amputational) dentistry have profound positive effects on people’s lives. We can now help patients create healthy and happy mouths with simple, and often painless techniques!
Patients are happier and often spend less compared to conventional treatment.
