Biomimetic Crowns vs. Traditional Crowns

 Biomeans life, and mimetic is a form of mimic. A biomimetic crown, then, mimics a natural tooth. Contemporary techniques allow dentists to remove minimal tooth structure – only that which is damaged. Then, with modern dental materials and CEREC technology, a dentist can create a biomimetic crown that closely imitates natural tooth enamel. Traditional crowns require significant tooth reduction, which can compromise a tooth’s health and necessitate a root canal. Traditional crowns are also known to irritate the gums where they dip beneath the gum line. Conservative biomimetic crowns simply don’t present these issues. They restore function and appearance with less severe side effects as traditional crowns.  Find out more about CEREC at http://www.backmountaindental.com/generaldentistry/cerec.php
