Biomimetic Dentistry

Biomimetic Dentistry in Modesto, CA

When your smile needs help, trust Dr. David Paxman to give you high-quality care. If your teeth have been damaged, Paxman Dental can determine the right treatment for your specific needs.

At Paxman Dental your oral health is our top priority. During a biomimetic restoration, more of your tooth is saved, compared to traditional procedures like crown, which irreversibly remove healthy parts of your tooth. Biomimetic treatments create a strong bond that protects against bacteria entering around the restoration. Traditional practices can lead to failed bonds, which increase decay, cracks and sensitivity. A traditional crown will last average of 4 years and will likely become symptomatic. Biomimetic restorations repair the tooth from the bottom up and last up to 15 years based on our current clinical data. Saving you healthy tooth structure is our highest priority. After biomimetic restoration, teeth chew and behave naturally, giving you a healthier smile.

Its Science


Biomimetically restoring a tooth begins with removing decay and cracks. Dentists trained with these principles use specialized dye and high degrees of magnification to prepare the tooth for restoration. This allows for only the decayed or cracked portion of the tooth to be removed, while preserving the healthy portions and encouraging a longer life for your tooth. Traditional practices remove parts of the tooth, regardless of its vitality. Biomimetic techniques take time but result in a healthier tooth once restored.


While a traditional crown or filling might look like a secure cover for your tooth, the material and preparations leave the tooth vulnerable to decay and cracks, often leading to a root canal or extraction. The materials used in a biomimetic restoration bond with the healthy parts of your tooth, protecting against bacteria and decay. This process allows your restored tooth to behave like a natural tooth, allowing your entire tooth to function like it should.


Biomimetic dentists love this phrase because it’s true. Once your biomimetic restoration is complete, you can enjoy years, if not decades, of full function. The materials and techniques used in your restoration will last, and that is something to smile about.
