4 Reasons Why You Should Consider Biomimetic/Tooth Conserving Dentistry

Biomimetic dentistry is a new approach to dental care that aims to mimic nature. It’s not just about creating beautiful smiles, it’s also about restoring the health of your mouth through better oral hygiene and preventing future problems like decay or gum disease. There are many reasons why you should consider biomimetic dentistry options for you and your family including:

REASON 1: Biomimetic dentists use materials and techniques that are less likely to cause irreversible damage. When you go to the dentist, they will often recommend a treatment plan. This could involve anything from filling cavities in your teeth with white or silver dental material to getting crowns and veneers for damaged tooth enamel. 

When biomimetic dentistry is used instead of traditional dentistry there is less need to file away healthy enamel and dentin.  We seek to remove the diseased parts of the tooth,  and this produces fewer irreversible long-term issues. Traditional amalgam fillings can result in potential fractures and discomfort,  potentially damaging the tooth long term. 

REASON 2: Biomimetic dentistry conserves healthy tooth structure and uses adhesive minimally invasive dentistry to rebuild the tooth to mimic its original state. Traditional techniques often cause teeth to weaken and break. While traditional methods might not always be noticeable, this damage can happen gradually over time so you may not experience discomfort immediately. However, with biomimetic dentistry,  we preserve the healthy part of the tooth,  and focus on removing diseased tooth structure,  potentially saving the tooth for longer and reinforcing the tooth.

REASON 3: Biomimetic restorations are an economical choice considering the benefits they offer. They require fewer repairs and therefore save on dental visits. It is more cost-effective than traditional restorations.

REASON 4: Biomimetic dentistry is a type of dentistry that has a high success rate.  Biomimetic dentistry is a method of repairing teeth by using tooth-colored materials,  sealing out decay-causing bacteria more effectively than traditional methods.
