What Is Biomimetic Dentistry?

The goal of biomimetic dentistry is tooth preservation. Biomimetic dentistry is the science of repairing damaged teeth using materials that mimic the properties of natural teeth to revive strength, appearance, and function. This type of dentistry can help individuals in the following ways:

  • Conserve the tooth structure as much as possible
  • Preserve the vitality of the tooth and prevent unnecessary root canals
  • Increase the bond strength of restorations
  • Reduce shrinkage stress on the teeth
  • Repair a tooth instead of extraction
  • Minimally invasive treatment that can reduce the need for anesthesia
  • Create long-lasting restorations and prevent future complications
  • Looks natural and feels like your own tooth

Biomimetic dentists at Elegant Smiles specialize in restorative dentistry, specifically, attempting to save any possible amount of your natural teeth and use only materials that will help restore a natural look and feel to your mouth. Our biomimetic dentists purposefully avoid adding further damage to the tooth structure. Therefore, if you have tooth decay, tooth damage, or even issues such as needing fillings or implants, while still wanting to maintain as much of your natural smile as possible, you may wish to contact our Las Vegas, NV office. We will be happy to learn more about your tooth complaints and to direct you to the appropriate specialist for addressing your issues.

Biomimetic dentistry is a more natural and preventive approach to treating a weak, fractured, and decayed tooth. Instead of traditional dentistry, this modern technique bonds or glues teeth back together and can even add to missing parts of a tooth without removing the structure of the tooth. Rebuilding a tooth with materials that imitate nature results in better tooth function that withstand daily oral hygiene routines and chewing. Ceramic materials, such as porcelain, zirconia, and ceramic hybrids, are some of the materials used for biomimetic dentistry. These materials can be contoured and polished to look just like a normal tooth with healthy tooth enamel. This minimally invasive type of dentistry not only strengthens the tooth but also protects it from further destruction caused by bacteria. Many biomimetic restorations can be performed in a single visit, depending on the nature of the reconstruction.

I like the fact that I can easily get appointments and most importantly appointments are on time (never have to wait long in the sitting room). Dr Phan is very thorough. My dental health is on the right track now. Will be recommending him to family and friends.

About Us
Does biomimetic dentistry mean no root canals?

Biomimetic dentistry works to restore the teeth in layers, taking inspiration from nature. Because we aim to save as much of the tooth as possible, it often will eliminate the need for a root canal. However, our team will work with you to ensure you're getting the proper treatment for your needs.

Do biomimetic procedures take longer than traditional dentistry procedures?

Traditional dentistry may require multiple visits; however, biomimetic dentistry is often performed in one single visit. So while that visit may be more intense than the initial visit with traditional dentistry, you should be able to spend less time in the dental chair as a whole.

How long has biomimetic dentistry been around?

Biomimetic dentistry has been practiced since about the 1950s and has been evolving ever since.
