6 Reasons for Choosing Biomimetic Dental Restoration

biomimetic restoration compositsEvery patient wants a dental repair that reduces the risk of infection or breakdown of a tooth.  This is the reason why dentist practice biomimetic dental restoration. Biomimetic literally means ‘imitating life’. Biomimetic dentistry is thus a type of tooth conserving dentistry whose main aim is to preserve the original tooth structure. It utilizes minimally invasive procedures by replacing the damaged areas to match the original structure to treat decayed and week teeth, making them strong as well as locking out bacteria.

Biomimetic dental techniques restore damaged teeth to mimic the structure and behavior on natural teeth. Besides the procedure being less invasive, it also offers numerous benefits. Here are 6 reasons why you should consider biomimetic dental restoration.

  1. Restores the Naturality of the Tooth

Biomimetic dentistry aims at restoring the tooth to have the original function, strength, and appearance. Traditional fillings and crown do not offer these properties. Biomimetic fillings have aesthetic properties thus will give your teeth a better look. It also provides a strong bond between teeth which does not easily break down.

  1. Less Pain and Sensitivity

There is significant pain reduction and less sensitivity with biomimetic dental restoration compared to the conventional filings. This is because biomimetic dentistry aims at removing the compromised part and naturally rebuilding the tooth and locking out any bacteria.

  1. Reduced Risk of Root canal

Old filing requires to be removed at some point in time. The filled tooth may have had a leakage allowing bacteria to enter. This causes more decay and may also lead to crowing or root canal. Most synthetic filling materials can lead to undesirable results. Luckily, the use of biomimetic dentistry reduces the need of having root canals at a large extent as well as painful crowns. This is because the materials we use are resilient hence reducing the chances for any infection.

  1. Lasts Longer

Dr. Woods uses safe and advanced materials to restore the teeth’s natural resilience and strength. These materials can withstand constant chewing without wearing out easily. You thus have healthier teeth for longer.

  1. Repairs Instead of Replacing

Biomimetic dentistry aims at repairing what is left of your natural tooth instead of removing it. The dentine does not have to be destroyed to accommodate a new restoration. Through this process, weak, decayed and fractured teeth are repaired in a healthier way.

  1. Saves You Money

Although biomimetic dentistry may take a little more time and might even cost more than the conventional way, it’s more cost-effective in the long run. It usually eliminates the need to redo a composite filling or retreat. This, in turn, preserves the tooth structure saving you the many trips to the dentist. Therefore, you get to save time and money in the process.

Unlike most parts of the body, the tooth does not regenerate or self-repair. It’s thus crucial to preserve as much of the tooth natural structure as possible as well as be proactive about your dental health. That’s why biomimetic dentistry is a reasonable choice when it comes to dental restorations.
