Traditional dental treatments have become progressively more invasive, with each consecutive treatment resulting in more natural tooth structure loss. At Harmony Dental Center, we treat damaged teeth using minimally invasive techniques and sealing procedures that are designed to protect the teeth from future invasions of bacteria.
What is Biomimetic Dentistry?
The word biomimetic, translated literally, means to copy what is life-like. The primary focus of biomimetics is to preserve the tooth. When restoring damaged, broken, and decayed teeth, our goal is to return your tooth to its original strength, function, and esthetics. Biomimetic dentistry allows us to accomplish all of this in a conservative, healthy, and attractive approach.
Biomimetic Dentistry is Tooth-Conserving Dentistry
A Biomimetic Dentist only removes damage and decay. The final restoration is bonded to healthy, intact natural tooth structure, resulting in a conservative and strong final restoration.
Biomimetic Dentistry is based on Advanced Adhesive Dentistry
When performing Biomimetic dental procedures, we are able to bond or glue teeth back together without removing large amounts of the natural tooth structure. Traditional dentistry can sometimes destroy healthy tooth structure to make room for the new restoration. With the application of today’s modern adhesives and bonding materials, we are able to restore your smile more naturally instead of utilizing grooves, slots, pins, and other non-adhesive retention elements.
