What is biomimetic dentistry?

Imagine dentistry that learns from nature's perfection to fix your teeth with care and precision. Biomimetic Dentistry does just that. Biomimetic Dentistry is defined as the use of specific techniques and materials to mimic the biological properties of teeth at time of treatment. It uses special methods and modern materials to treat teeth in a way that mimics their natural strength and appearance. In general, when a tooth erupts in the mouth, it is naturally provided with the most ideal anatomy and strength. In cases of decayed or cracked teeth, Biomimetic Dentistry aims to restore the tooth to its original Health, Function, and Beauty.

Biomimetic Dentistry: Restoring Dental Health, Function, and Beauty through Nature Inspired Techniques

When a tooth first erupts in the oral cavity, it possesses an inherent and optimal combination of anatomy and strength. The enamel, dentin, and pulp work in harmony to withstand the forces of chewing, resist decay, and maintain a seamless appearance. However, over time, factors such as decay, trauma, and wear can compromise a tooth's structural integrity and appearance. It is here that Biomimetic Dentistry steps in, aiming to replicate nature's blueprint and restore teeth in a way that is as close to their original state as possible.

Biomimetic Dentistry encompasses a wide range of procedures, including the restoration of decayed, cracked, and structurally compromised teeth. For instance, when addressing a decayed tooth, our biomimetic dentist, Dr. David Hakham, gently removes the decayed portion, often without the need for invasive drilling that characterizes traditional methods. The resulting cavity is meticulously cleaned and conditioned before being filled with a resilient and tooth-colored restorative material. This approach not only restores the tooth's strength but also creates a virtually undetectable repair.

The following demonstrates a recent case where a tooth presented with decay around and underneath an existing composite resin restoration (tooth-colored filling). After careful removal of the old filling and decay in a conservative manner, the tooth was restored with composite resin material using principles of bonding. As evident, the tooth was artistically restored to ideal anatomy. This case represents an example of Biomimetic Dentistry; where the tooth was restored back to life!
