Minimally Invasive / Biomimetic Dentistry

In our office, we practice minimally invasive dentistry, also known as tooth conserving dentistry.  We strive to conserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible and making dental restorations look as natural. With a focus on scientific advances and prevention, we can achieve the desired outcomes while protecting healthy tooth structure.  Biomimetic Dentistry is an important part of how we practice dentistry.  We focus on reproducing the biomechanics and aesthetic properties of intact healthy teeth using the latest techniques and long-lasting dental materials that conserve the maximum existing tooth structure so the need for future repairs is reduced. Biomimetic dentistry treats weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong and seals them from the invasion of bacteria. It reduces the need for cutting teeth down for crowns and helps to prevent root canal treatments. After the treatment has been completed, we will help develop a plan with strategies to prevent or even reduce the risk for tooth decay. In essence, it is utilizing the latest in dental materials and technology to preserve what we’ve got, for as long as we’ve got – just as nature intended.
