Avoid dental crowns with biomimetics in dentistry
At South Lakewood Dental, one focus of Dr. Stewart is the use of biomimetics in dentistry. Biomimetics, which stands for bio (nature) and mimetic (mimicking), “mimics nature” by working with the tooth’s natural characteristics.
How does biomimetics work?
The natural tooth bends and flexes, which keeps it from breaking each time patients chew. Crowns, placed over a tooth, do not allow for this same flexibility. By eliminating the placement of a crown and instead building the tooth layer by layer, it still has the same ability as the natural tooth once did.
Who is a candidate for biomimetics dentistry?
Every patient should consider the benefits of biomimetics. This process ensures a healthy, functional alternative is considered. It eliminates the use of dental crowns, allowing the dentist to rebuild the tooth structure and give it the benefits of a natural tooth.
