Biomimetic dentistry is used to treat weak, fractured, or decayed teeth. It’s a special method of restoring and preserving teeth, one which keeps them strong. It also seals them against the harmful bacteria which cause decay. We utilise advanced bonding techniques, requiring additional dental training, experience and skill.
The word ‘biomimetic’ means to mimic nature in terms of structure, function and aesthetics. When we restore teeth using biomimetic principles, the procedures used are minimally invasive and are performed to restore the tooth in a way that allows it to behave, just as a natural tooth would.
Along with biomimetic inlays and overlays, we can also offer biomimetic bonded bridges, in certain circumstances. Unlike conventional bridges, no valuable tooth structure is removed from the two teeth which support the bridge. It is also less costly.
Biomimetic dentistry is tooth conserving, repairable, even reversible in some cases, and can be easy on the pocket too.
