Lifetime Dental Care takes pride in delivering innovative dental practices and is at the forefront of biomimetic dentistry in Perth.
Biomimetic dentistry is a restorative approach that mimics the natural structure and function of teeth, providing superior outcomes in dental care. This approach embraces the concept of emulating the natural properties of the teeth to achieve long-lasting and aesthetically pleasing dental restorations. Meaning ‘imitating nature’, Biomimetic dentistry focuses on preserving the tooth’s natural structure, enhancing its strength, and creating a bond that closely resembles the natural tooth.
Minimally Invasive Approach: The aim is to conserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible. By using precise techniques and adhesive materials, we can eliminate the need for aggressive tooth preparation that may compromise the tooth’s strength.
Stress-Reducing Restorations: Biomimetic restorations are designed to distribute chewing forces evenly, reducing stress on the tooth and minimising the risk of fracture or damage. This approach helps to preserve the tooth’s integrity and longevity.
Bonding Techniques: The emphasis is on utilising advanced bonding techniques and materials to create a strong and durable bond between the natural tooth and the restoration. This bond enhances the tooth strength, seals out bacteria, and prevents future decay.
Preservation of Natural Tooth Structure: By using minimally invasive techniques, biomimetic dentistry preserves healthy tooth structure, reducing the need for extensive drilling or removal of healthy tooth material.
Enhanced Strength & Function: Biomimetic restorations are designed to mimic the natural tooth’s strength and function, allowing for improved chewing and speaking abilities.
Aesthetically Pleasing Results: Utilising tooth-coloured materials that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth, biomimetic dentistry creates restorations that are virtually indistinguishable from the surrounding dentition. This approach delivers aesthetically pleasing results that enhance your smile’s appearance.
Longevity of restorations: By preserving the tooth’s natural structure and using advanced bonding techniques, biomimetic restorations offer exceptional longevity. These restorations can provide durable solutions that last.
Inlays and Onlays
We also recommend porcelain inlays and onlays as conservative restoration options. These porcelain restorations are used to repair teeth with moderate damage or decay, where a filling may not be sufficient but a crown is not necessary.
Inlays: An inlay is a custom-made restoration that fits into the prepared cavity within the tooth. It restores the chewing surface of the tooth and provides strength and protection. Inlays are typically made of porcelain materials that match the natural colour of your teeth.
Onlays:Similar to inlays, onlays also cover the chewing surface of the tooth. However, they extend beyond the cavity to restore one or more cusps of the tooth.
