What is Biomimetic Dentistry?

Biomimetic means life-mimicking. As a biomimetic dentist, Dr. Erpenbach uses advanced adhesive dentistry that mimics nature’s design for our teeth.

Biomimetic means life-mimicking. As a biomimetic dentist, Dr. Erpenbach uses advanced adhesive dentistry that mimics nature’s design for our teeth. Instead of using a mechanical approach – cutting a tooth down and adding a crown – Dr. Erpenbach rebuilds a tooth so that the tooth reacts to pressure like a natural, healthy tooth would react. Biomimetic dentistry replaces the need for crowns.

To effectively practice biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Erpenbach studies adhesive dental science. He completed the Alleman-Deliperi Centers for Biomimetic Dentistry six-part course and strongly supports the philosophy presented. Why? Because the greater amount of healthy, natural tooth structure you can retain; the more lifelike a dental restoration can be, the better. No dentist can replace what nature gave you. However, Dr. Erpenbach can mimic nature more closely than ever before.

Using small inlays, bonded in place according to the principals of biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Erpenbach eliminates the need for dental crowns. These restorations don’t leak or crack like their predecessors.

Have you ever had a dentist place a crown and tell you that you might have problems with the tooth in the future? Or that the tooth may be sensitive for a while? With biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Erpenbach doesn’t have to give these warnings. In using biomimetic, adhesive dentistry, he has found that his patients have few complaints, if any, following placement of a restoration.
