Lifelike Repair With Biomimetic Dental Care

Woodland Hills biomimetic crown

When people develop damaged teeth, or a case of tooth decay or infection, then we want to offer repair that is not only durable, but designed to look natural too. Which is why we use biomimetic materials, which are metal-free and color-matched for each individual patient. In today’s blog, your Woodland Hills, CA, dentist talks about our fillings, crowns, and more.

Natural-Looking Dental Fillings

Metal fillings are effective, but they also change shape with time and often contain trace amounts of mercury, making them unsafe for young children, pregnant women, and the elderly. However, we have an option free of metal! The composite resin we create them from can be shaded to blend with the surrounding tooth structure, and is made from a blend of glass and acrylic-like particles that are safe for people for all ages! 

Inlays, Onlays, and Dental Crowns

What if you have an issue that needs more than a filling, such as a case of severe tooth decay, dental infection, or a cracked or chipped tooth? For these, we could create restorations from porcelain, a strong martial that is durable and again, able to be color-matched to blend with the rest of your smile. We have partial crowns, known as inlays and onlays. The inlays fit in between the cusps on top of the teeth, and the onlays fit over the cusps. Our full dental crowns will cover the entire visible portion of each tooth. These could instantly reshape teeth, address restorative concerns, and correct cosmetic imperfections. We also use them to aid in tooth loss treatment, as they can secure a bridge or restore a single tooth dental implant. 

Dental Bonding 

Dental bonding uses the same lifelike composite resin employed in each dental filling, but for purely cosmetic applications. For example, we can make teeth stains, close gaps between teeth, reshape malformed teeth, and yes, repair minor chips and cracks. The placement process only takes one visit, and an aid in a smile makeover. We also use biomimetic materials in our veneers, as each one is made from porcelain. A porcelain veneer covers the front and sides of each tooth, which instantly alters a smile’s appearance. 

If you have any questions about these materials, or about restoring the health and beauty of your smile, then contact our team today. We would love to help you make major changes to your smile in 2022!
