What is a Biomimetic Filling or Restoration?

Strengthening Your Teeth Through Biomimetic Dentistry

If you’re looking for a modern approach to dentistry, biomimetic dentistry is a great way to protect your smile and strengthen your teeth — without the damaging effects of traditional dentistry.

When it comes to fixing your smile after damage, biomimetic dentistry uses restorative techniques instead of replacement. Here’s how:

How Do Biomimetic Fillings Differ From Traditional Restorative Options?

Biomimetic dentistry focuses on conserving and treating weak, fractured, and decayed teeth. The least invasive approach is used to preserve as much of a natural tooth as possible, correcting damage before more occurs. Traditional dental treatments such as implants, overlays, or crowns cover the damage — they don’t protect your teeth from further damage.

A biomimetic filling helps to protect what’s left of your tooth, preventing extraction and preserving the natural dental material. Therefore, this modern approach conservatively adds to your teeth rather than totally subtracting and covering.

How Does a Biomimetic Filling Work?

Many biomimetic treatments are completed through these five easy steps:

  • Etch the area to expose the porous layer.
  • Prime the area using resin.
  • Apply bonding resin.
  • Apply a ceramic layer.
  • Cure the area.
