Biomimetic dentistry, aims to conserve as much of the tooth as possible. When replacing old fillings, fractured and decayed teeth, the biomimetic dentist aims to keep teeth strong and seal them from bacterial invasion. In dental practices around the world, Biomimetic Dentistry has eliminated cutting teeth down unnecessarily for crowns, whenever possible which may lead to destructive root canal treatments. Our restorative dentists take all the precautions to ensure the tooth is kept alive and create as little inflammation as possible during restorative treatments.
Informed individuals know that amalgam dental fillings pose unnecessary health risks due to mercury content. Our office uses a highly biocompatible all-ceramic filling material, as it contains none of the toxic monomers, generally present in most white fillings. This liquid ceramic material is strong enough even for molars, durable, and blend beautifully with the smile. But what about BPA? The team at Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills offers only BPA-free fillings.
Bisphenol A is an industrial chemical contained in some epoxy resins and polycarbonate plastics, such as those used for food containers, water bottles, and the lining of metal cans. Currently, there is concern that exposure to BPA can affect brain development (and thus behavior) of children, and prostate glands of male fetuses. Research also suggests a possible link to elevated blood pressure in adults. Some dental materials contain BPA, although in low concentrations. Dental Health and Wellness Beverly Hills does not use BPA dental fillings or BPA dental sealants. We use only BPA-free materials!
We no longer use the composite resin bonding material that is plastic! Our material of choice is filled with nano-particle ceramic for light-reflecting qualities that mimic natural tooth enamel.
This pliable composite is versatile and easy to use for:
Hi! I am Dr. Tevan Oganesyan practising at Beverly Hills Dental and Health Wellness Centre. In our practice we do provide metal free or toxic free dentistry. One thing is biomimetic dentistry is different from traditional dentistry: 1. considers the pulp and 2. preserves a lot of tooth structure and is pathology free. So, in the real world, biomimetic which is mimicking the world is living without disease. So all those things, consideration, we make it sure the tooth is in a normal and healthy situation. Biomimetic dentistry versus the traditional dentistry, we only focus on the area where the tooth is affected. So, in conventional dentistry, if the small defect was on the tooth, we have to take the entire tooth, prep it, cut it down which can eventually lead to unnecessary endodontic treatment, which is a root canal. Whereas in biomimetic dentistry, we avoid those, we only focus on that small little fragment and we replace it with biomimetic materials.
Liquid ceramic fillings are just one example of our commitment to providing dentistry that is good for you. Why? Because we know that your mouth is the gateway to your health. In the Beverly Hills, CA area, call (310) 692-7855.
