Our team of dentists at True Dentistry are extensively trained in biomimetic dentistry and utilize these approaches to provide patients with conservative, preventative treatments that maintain natural tooth structure, enhance tooth strength, and address a variety of dental health and cosmetic concerns. Dr. Joseph G. Willardsen understands the incredible benefits that biomimetic dentistry provides his patients and is dedicated to performing these treatments using the latest techniques and state-of-the-art materials. Dr. Willardsen is not only highly trained in biomimetic dentistry, he is also a certified Alleman-Deliperi Biomimetic instructor and a respected national presenter on the topic. Additionally, one of our other dentists—Preston Browne, DDS—has extensively studied biomimetic dentistry at USC under Dr. Pascal Magne, who is considered the “Guru” of biomimetic dentistry.

What Is Biomimetic Dentistry?
Biomimetic dentistry involves treatment techniques designed to help you maintain healthy teeth with preventive measures to reinforce them, ultimately reducing the risk of future decay and the need for major dental work. Biomimetic literally means to copy what is natural. Biomimetic dentistry aims to copy your teeth’s natural processes using advanced technology, with the goal of helping to:
- Protect against bacteria
- Reduce the risk of infection
- Prevent loss of teeth
- Reinforce the teeth so that dental work lasts longer
- Reduce the potential for decay and problems later in life that may require significant dental treatment
Biomimetic dentistry is one of the most progressive fields of dentistry in the world, and True Dentistry is proud to offer patients this advanced level of treatment.
How Does Biomimetic Dentistry Work?
The principles of biomimetic dentistry can be applied at any age to advance and preserve the natural health and structure of teeth. The diagram below demonstrates which anti-aging biomimetic dentistry interventions may be recommended at various life-stages to break the typical degenerative dental cycle.
Utilizing conservative techniques to save as much as the original teeth as possible, biomimetic dentistry allows our dentists at True Dentistry to treat vulnerable, decayed, fractured, and weak teeth while working to save them from new problems developing later.
What Are My Biomimetic Treatment Options?
With treatments such as inlays and onlays, modern adhesives, and bonding techniques, tooth structure can be saved without reliance on more complex restorative dentistry treatments. Biomimetic dental techniques can result in less drilling, less need for root canal therapy, conservation of natural teeth, fewer cavities, and fewer dental treatments.
The Biomimetic Dentistry Process
When you come to Ture Dentistry for dental care, the treatment process always begins with a full assessment of your oral health. Your evaluation includes full dental X-rays, as well as a comprehensive examination of your teeth, gums, bite, and jaw. Close attention will be paid to any vulnerable teeth (caused by damage, decay, or genetics), previous dental work, and signs of gum disease. Based on the findings of the examination, your dentist will develop a customized treatment plan aimed at addressing problem areas with conservative biomimetic options where appropriate to restore your smile and prevent the formation of more costly dental issues in the future. If more extensive restorative or reconstructive procedures are indicated—such as crowns, dental implants, or the replacement of old dental work—your dentist will thoroughly explain your options and discuss the advantages of each solution. At True Dentistry our experienced, highly trained dentists utilize the latest techniques, technology, and materials to deliver quality results that are long-lasting and natural-looking.
