Practitioner Testimonials:

The best and cheapest dentistry is when the right thing is done extremely well the first time. And it lasts.
Biomimetic dentistry meets that challenge.


Every time a dentist drills into a tooth, you're condemning that person to a refilling years down the road.

Mouth Matters

Former Surgeon General C. Everett Koop has often said, "You are not healthy without good oral health."
Mouth Matters is the quintessential road map for people who want to better understand the connection between oral and overall health.


Biomimetic Dentistry CE

We offer the most comprehensive and premier educational program in adhesive dentistry available. The Six Lessons program is a combination of hands-on application and in-depth scientific review designed to train dentists to apply Biomimetic Principles.
- David S. Alleman DDS




Championed in large measure by Dr. David Alleman with his 10 year/10,000 hour review of the scientific literature on which advanced adhesive (Biomimetic) dentistry is based, Biomimetic Dentistry avails itself of the science of adhesion (bonding) and advanced polymerization techniques to control shrinkage stresses in composite resin restorations. With these proper techniques, micro leakage is virtually eliminated, with bonded distances between the tooth and the restorative material of less than 1 micron, thus preventing subsequent bacterial infiltration and recurrent caries.

Unlike dental amalgam which relies on mechanical interlocking for successful placement (and the requisite destruction of sound tooth structure), with biomimetic restorations, healthy tooth structure is preserved and tooth vitality is maintained. And, unlike typical composite-resin restorations, the micro leakage facilitated by polymer shrinkage is eliminated.

Biomimetic restorations are successful in both anterior and posterior dentition. Case reviews over a 10-15 year period suggest a projected service life of 30 years or longer. In practices where patients are treated biomimetically, root canal therapy on vital teeth is reduced by 90% and new crowns on partially broken down teeth are virtually eliminated.

If you are not aware of biomimetic dentistry, then you are not current.


Traditional prosthodontic principles (stabilization and retention) do not align with the biology (pulp survival), function and mechanics of natural teeth. In the "biomimetic approach", the dental tissues (enamel, dentin, dej) are returned to full function through a hard tissue bond, allowing functional stresses to pass through the tooth and returning the damaged tooth to a functional, biologic, and esthetic result.

Biomimetic restorations include stress-reduced direct composite restorations and porcelain/composite inlays and onlays that restore the biomechanics of broken and damaged teeth. Traditional dental treatments including porcelain fused to metal crowns, gold crowns, and amalgam fillings are not biomimetic by any measure.

Traditional approaches to treating damaged and decayed teeth require more aggressive preparation to place a "strong", stiff restoration. The emphasis is on the strength of the restoration, but no attention is placed into the function and biomechanics of the final restored tooth. By ignoring this critical aspect, it is no surprise that complications such as root canals occur more frequently and future treatment becomes progressively more aggressive and invasive.

So begins the restorative dental cycle in which the teeth are ultimately lost from successive treatments. With Biomimetic dentistry, only the damage and decay is removed from the teeth, and the final restoration is bonded to the remaining healthy natural tooth structure. These bonded restorations function and behave "Biomimetically" and break the restorative dental cycle (not patient's teeth)!
