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
How Does Biomimetic Dentistry Work?
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.

Absolutely incredible. Very caring and professional. Everyone at the office takes attention to detail customer service to the next level. Highly recommend.
These guys are great! Starting from the receptionist, to the dental assistants all the way to Drs. Huynh and Phan. Everyone treats you so well. They make sure you know what's happening (if you wanna know, at least) and that you're comfortable the whole time. They've even taken care to put in amenities for you: like a massage dentist chair and a TV right above it for when your teeth are getting worked on. It's a great office, great practice.
This dentist office is truly a gem in Las Vegas! Dr. Eileen and her husband are so nice and competent. The receptionists always promptly call back and they will go above and beyond to squeeze you in if you need an emergency repair for a broken tooth for example. They won't try to sell you treatments you don't need and they don't lie to their patients. Been to so many bad dentist offices in the past, they are one of the best in Las Vegas. Prices are very reasonable too! Highly recommend this dentist office. Thank you Dr. Eileen!!
Thank you for the wonderful service I received today😊. I needed to get a lot of work done and was nervous about potential pain, because of my past experiences with other dentist offices. Dr. Huynh is the best dentist I have ever had, and treated this cry baby with the most gentle hands. She individually cleaned each tooth in my mouth, and I didn’t even need numbing gel lol. Everywhere else I have been in the past left me traumatized and in pain, so what a relief it was to be given that extra reassurance and perfect end results. I had an awesome teeth cleaning, and was numbed up perfectly to have my fillings put in. I look forward to all of my future teeth cleanings and check ups with Dr. Huynh!!!
