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.
Elegant Smiles Reviews
I chose Elegant Smiles when looking for a dentist near my apartment and saw the great reviews. I have to say the reviews are only the tip fo the iceberg and if I could give 10 stars, I would! I had clear alignment orthodontic therapy done and Dr Eileen and Dr. Phi were both involved in my treatment. They explained the entire process to me and I felt comfortable throughout the entire 6 month process. They are so awesome! I felt my treatment was performed with the highest levels of quality and service. Beyond the treatment, what I absolutely love about Elegant Smiles is their entire staff. From the doctors to the assistants, to the front desk staff, from the moment I would enter the office, the staff was so welcoming and I was treated like family. My friends and family laugh at me because I keep saying how much I LOVE going to the dentist. It’s because I look forward to every visit and every time they call me for anything, it brings a smile to my face because they genuinely care and they are on top of it! I’m no longer in Las Vegas, but I want to do everything I can to time my cleanings and future treatments so that I can keep going to Elegant Smiles. Thank you for being so awesome!
