What Exactly is

Biomimetic Dentistry?

Biomimetic dentistry is known as the art and science of restoring damaged teeth and using materials that mimic the properties of natural teeth—to enhance strength, appearance, and function. Nature is our ideal model to imitate for authentic, realistic results, and “biomimetic” means to copy what is life-like from nature.

The essence of Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry (BRD) is to PROTECT a tooth’s liveliness (preventing root canal treatment), PRESERVE healthy tooth structure (such as avoiding crowns or extractions), and RECONSTRUCT damaged tooth structure to RESTORE its natural biomechanical function and strength. This method results in a sustainable restoration process that eliminates the risks associated with conventional techniques and gives the tooth the best opportunity for long-term health and survival.

Traditional VS.
Biomimetic Dentistry

Despite the many advancements in biomedical and biomaterial sciences, technology, and growing demand for better dental care, it's surprising to find that many dental treatment methods are still based on traditional practices from the early 1900s.

Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry (BRD), a scientifically supported and innovative approach to dental treatment, addresses the shortcomings and limitations of traditional dentistry. BRD provides a solution for teeth that are fragile, cracked, or decaying by fortifying them and guarding against bacterial intrusion, thus avoiding the necessity of crowns and root canal procedures that involve reducing the size of the teeth.

What is the

Practical Difference?

With traditional dentistry, healthy tooth structure must be removed to make room for a new restoration, leading to damage and loss of valuable tooth material. Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry, on the other hand, is a less invasive, more conservative approach that not only preserves healthy tooth structure but especially improves the strength of the tooth.

Traditional Dentistry has faced challenges with a reliance on over-engineered materials, due to a lack of understanding of the natural mechanics of teeth. Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry (BRD) is based on the fundamental principles of the biomechanics of teeth, taking into account their movement, flexibility, and force dynamics. With modern advancements, it is now possible to reconstruct teeth with materials that more closely mimic natural teeth, providing a stronger and longer-lasting restoration.
By opting for Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry treatments, patients can receive higher-quality dental care and avoid the destructive practices associated with traditional dentistry.


Why You Should Choose

Biomimetic Dentistry

Dr. Shayesteh's


Our practice philosophy is to provide minimal dental work whenever possible with the aim of preserving a patient’s natural tooth structure and therefore its strength & life. In other words, “there’s no dentistry like no dentistry.” When intervention is deemed necessary, it’s important to do it right the first time, which is where biomimetic restorative dentistry comes into play—as a responsible and scientifically-backed approach that delivers long-lasting results.
