What is Biomimetics?

Biomimetics in dentistry is the principle of preserving and restoring teeth to mimic nature as close as science and technology will allow. The biomimetic approach utilizes intact natural teeth as a guide for designing and constructing dental restorations which mimic nature in both form and function. Our goal with biomimetic dentistry is to carry out minimally invasive dentistry and maintain your natural tooth’s form and function by preserving the maximum amount of tooth structure possible.

In traditional dentistry, healthy tooth structure is often removed in order to retain restorations. With minimally invasive dentistry the use of properly bonded porcelain and composite restorations allow us to reduce the need for posts and full crowns. Biomimetic principles allow our doctors to help you preserve your natural teeth for as long as possible.
