Biomimetics is a holistic approach to dentistry that works to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible, while still offering the best dental care for your needs. It has made metals and amalgams unnecessary for crowns, fillings, and dental bonding.
What is Biomimetic Dentistry?
Biomimetic means to “mimic nature.” Whereas traditional restorations in dentistry have to sacrifice a tooth’s healthy structure to perform root canals and make room for placing crowns, biomimetic dentistry allows us to use materials that are more biocompatible than metals and amalgam, which can crack, leak, or cause infection. We can also use less invasive techniques to complete restorations.
Biomimetic materials for restorations include porcelain, zirconia, and hybrid ceramic materials. They are easily painted to replicate your natural tooth color, and are easily shaped. We also utilize CEREC technology to take 3D models of your restoration and create it without the use of a lab, within your visit.
