Minimally Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry

Hello, I’m Dr. James Segulyev and I practice Minimally Invasive Dentistry with a special emphasis on treating TMJ Disorder, Bioesthetic Rejuvenation Dentistry, Sleep Apnea Therapy, Cosmetic Dentistry, and General Dentistry. As the owner of a dental practice based in Dallas that specializes in health-centered wellness and longevity, I spend a good amount of my time focusing on Minimally Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry.

Traditionally, to correct major alignment issues or to create a winning smile, dentists turned to crowns, sometimes crowning every tooth in a patient’s mouth to get the desired functionality and aesthetics. There’s a lot of room for things to go wrong with this process and, quite frankly, if you don’t need to remove all of that tooth structure, why would you?

Minimally Invasive Biomimetic Dentistry works to conserve your natural tooth structure. While crowns are sometimes still necessary, applying certain techniques to resin-composite materials allows for less removal of tooth structure. The newer techniques also ensure that, in the hands of an expertly-trained dentist, a patient will still have a beautiful smile and it will last longer than traditionally-placed resin-composites.

What Is Biomimetic Dentistry?

Biomimetic Dentistry aims to preserve and restore the natural biology of your dental system. Through this process, porcelain inlays and onlays are used in conjunction with stress-reduced direct composite restorations. Together, these treatments help to fully restore the biomechanics of worn and damaged teeth.

Biomimetic Restoration Treatment Process

The treatment process for Biomimetic Restoration is quite different from conventional crowns, both in terms of its goals as well as its methods. Preparation for traditional crowns is much more aggressive. Through this approach, a good amount of the tooth is removed in order to make room for the restoration. The focus is on the restoration, not the tooth. The mentality is, the stronger the restoration, the better the results. Unfortunately, the problem with this approach is that it weakens the tooth structure, which often results in further complications and the need for more restorative treatments.

Biomimetic Restoration, on the other hand, focuses on the tooth, not the synthetic materials. The goal is to improve the function and biomechanics of the tooth. Damaged and decaying matter is removed, but nothing else. Then, the restoration is bonded to the healthy tooth matter. In this way, more of the tooth structure is preserved, resulting in better long-term function and reduced cost over the patient’s lifetime.
