Biomimetic DentistryBiomimetic dentistry is a type of tooth-conserving dentistry that focuses on treating weak, decayed, or fractured teeth in a strong and preservative manner. The goal is to bond or glue a tooth together reliably and without removing volumes of healthy tooth structure. We can even add missing parts of a tooth with composite resin. If done properly, biomimetic dentistry should also seal the tooth off from future bacterial infections.

FillingsFillings are used to restore areas of your tooth affected by decay. At Lauren Becker DDS, PC we use composite (tooth-colored) materials to "fill in" the surface of the tooth after all decay has been removed.

CrownsA crown is a covering that will wrap and protect the entire surface of a tooth, allowing it to look and function just like the original tooth. Crowns work to strengthen the tooth while protecting the existing structure, extending the life of the tooth longer that it would be with a filling or another restoration.

BridgesDental bridges are fixed appliances that will work to restore the structure and function of your teeth after tooth loss. These appliances are non-removable, so they will become a permanent part of your smile. There are many different types of bridges, and we can help you to choose the option that is right for your unique dental needs.
