It’s great news that the incidence of tooth decay has significantly diminished over the years due to the use of fluorides and an increase in patient awareness. However, teeth are still susceptible to decay, infection, and breakage and sometimes need to be restored back to health. Through improved techniques and modern technology, we are now able to offer more options for restoring a tooth back to its normal shape, appearance and function.
Should your teeth ever require a restorative treatment, you can rest assured knowing we will always discuss with you the available options, and recommend what we believe to be the most comfortable and least invasive treatment. Providing you with excellent care is our number one priority when creating your beautiful smile.
When doing any restorative dentistry, we follow the principles of Biomimetic dentistry. Biomimetic means to copy of mimic nature. Nature is our ideal model to imitate. Teeth move, bend, and have physical dynamics of force that must be accounted for while remaking the tooth with nature as our guide. Biomimetic dentistry, a type of tooth conserving dentistry, treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from bacterial invasion. Biomimetic dentists work smaller with the goal of removing less natural tooth structure. We use advanced materials and techniques to create the strongest bond possible so teeth with biomimetic fillings can last a long time. Much of the amputation of tooth structure can be eliminated with modern science and medicaments.
