If you are worried about having your teeth removed due to damage, you are not alone. Many dental procedures are done in the United States, and teeth removal might not be the only option.
At Chase Inspired Dentistry of Draper, Utah, Dr. Chase Larsen and his team are committed to ensuring you protect your smile by providing alternative treatments. This field of dental work is known as biomimetic dentistry, otherwise called holistic dentistry.
Biomimetic dentistry is a modern approach to dental care that focuses on preserving the natural structure and function of teeth. It is based on the concept of biomimicry, which looks to nature for inspiration in designing solutions for human problems. In the case of dentistry, this means mimicking the natural structure and functionality of teeth to create long-lasting smiles with minimally invasive procedures.
Unlike conventional dentistry, which often relies on invasive procedures and materials that can weaken or damage teeth over time, biomimetic dentistry aims to restore and strengthen teeth using biocompatible materials and techniques. The treatments are tailored to each individual’s unique anatomy and needs rather than following a one-size-fits-all approach.
Another key difference is the focus on prevention. Biomimetic dentistry strongly emphasizes preventive care, helping patients maintain healthy teeth and gums to avoid the need for more invasive treatments in the future. This approach is a more proactive one instead of a reactive one.
For example, instead of waiting for the pain to develop to determine if a cavity has formed, patients should see their dentist regularly for examinations and maintain good oral habits at home to keep cavities from developing in the first place.
Dr. Chase Larsen and his team at Chase Inspired Dentistry work with patients in and around Draper, Utah, to educate them on how to safely and effectively improve their smiles.

minimally-invasive techniques. He is a graduate of the Tufts University School of Dental Medicine and completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency. He loves helping patients feel confident about their smiles and teaches cosmetic dentistry to colleagues throughout the country.
