What is biomimetic dentistry?

This is all about restoring a damaged tooth using materials that mimic the natural tooth. Teeth are naturally very hard and robust on the outside but slightly flexible on the inside. This flexibility can cause conventional fillings to leak or crack so either the tooth breaks or gets decay.

 

Because the materials we use mimic the elasticity of natural teeth and connects the tooth back together, teeth can last much, much longer after being restored compared to conventional fillings. Evidence suggests restorations can last up to 4 times longer. How many times do you want your fillings replaced?
