Restorative dentistry can be life-changing, as well as enhance our smiles.
You may have heard of biomimetic restoration services and even found us while searching for terms like “biomimetic dentist near me.” Here at Chase Inspired Dentistry in Draper, Utah, Dr. Chase Larsen is one of the few practitioners experienced in biomimetic dentistry.
Biomimetics is a way of imitating natural life to create something new. In dentistry, this technique can help preserve and strengthen teeth that have been weakened, damaged, or infected by protecting them from further damage.
This approach to dental care emphasizes preserving as much of the natural teeth as possible, helping avoid more invasive treatments such as root canals or irreversible tooth removal.
This approach focuses on preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible, rebuilding the teeth in layers as they occur in nature, and minimizing destructive forces. Using bonded tooth-colored materials, this technique helps to spread the force exerted on the tooth more evenly, providing additional support.
After your tooth has been prepared, a unique, biocompatible material is applied. This material has a color similar to your natural tooth, and it is reinforced with a fiber mesh to stop it from shrinking as it dries. This helps ensure the material seals out bacteria and protects your tooth from fractures, breaks, and fissures.
Here are just a few fantastic benefits you receive from biomimetic dentistry:
Affordability: Biomimetic dentistry was developed with you in mind, offering an improved solution compared to other treatments. Not only is it better for your teeth, but it is also more cost-effective in the long term.
Restores While Preventing Damage: Biomimetics can help keep your teeth healthy and strong by restoring any damage and helping to prevent future issues.
Preserves Your Tooth Structure: Unlike some therapeutic methods, this treatment does not require any healthy parts of your tooth to be filed down to fit a filling, dental crown, or another device.
Works Faster: It’s possible to complete biomimetic treatment in just one visit – no need for multiple appointments over time.
Life-Like Restorations: Using the latest technological advances, we can create dental restorations that offer the same level of protection as your enamel and dentin.
