Biomimetic dentistry utilizes minimally invasive procedures to protect and conserve a patient’s teeth. This is in contrast to conventional dentistry procedures which can compromise the structure of teeth through extensive drilling and amputation. These invasive procedures used by traditional dentistry are usually followed by incorporation of non-bonding materials used for fillings and crowns, eventually resulting in cracks, allowing bacterial infections that destroy the tooth, and the subsequent need for root canals, implants and bridges. However, up to 90% of crowns can be avoided with early detection and preventive medicine procedures utilized in biomimetic dentistry.

Biomimetics is a scientifically proven set of techniques and methodologies that focus on preserving teeth and improving bonding and sealing of broken or decayed teeth in ways that mimic natural processes of teeth. This unique approach allows dentists to use small onlays that move, flex and function like actual teeth. This is in stark contrast to the large porcelain crowns currently used in traditional dentistry. Porcelain crowns restrict movement and simply do not allow teeth to function normally.

The superior materials and adhesive bonding processes used in biomimetic dentistry literally lock out bacteria, providing safer and more durable dental work. Each protective layer, using the most advanced dental materials, is applied in similar manner to the original enamel and dentin materials that comprise teeth (refer to Anatomy of a Tooth).

The goal of biomimetic dentistry is to continually preserve the patient’s teeth during each dental procedure. These innovative dental procedures and proprietary adhesive bonding processes (using state-of-the-art composite resins, ceramics/porcelain, and other materials) restore teeth to their natural structure and color. Aesthetic procedures and computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing (CAM) are utilized to provide beautiful white uniform teeth.

Unlike other parts of our body, our teeth often do not mend on their own. This is why it is important to protect and conserve as much of the patient’s natural tooth and gum structure as possible. The most successful dentistry is comprised of procedures that are the least invasive, thus avoiding further damage to the patient’s teeth and gums. This is the philosophy and primary emphasis behind the origin of biomimetic dentistry and holistic approaches for keeping the patient’s teeth and gums healthy and beautiful.
