Dr. John Bial, cosmetic dentist in Bremerton, WA, recently introduced a new method of dental restoration that is helping patients preserve more of their natural teeth during restorative procedures to give them a stronger, healthier smile. Dr. Bial is trained in biomimetic dentistry that has a goal of providing the most life-like restorations possible.
In its literal translation, biomimetic means “life-like copy.” Biomimetic dentistry is based on the principle of returning the tooth to full function by removing only the portion of the tooth that is unhealthy and nothing more. This is done to prevent restorative failures and fractures that commonly occur with traditional forms of restorative dentistry.
“Biomimetic dentistry is the next big movement in dentistry that is helping patients achieve better oral health with the latest techniques and practices,” said Dr. John Bial, biomimetic and laser dentist in Bremerton, WA. “We're proud to be able to provide this service to our patients so they can not only have better smile aesthetics, but also have more long-lasting oral health.”
Traditional dental treatments such as amalgam fillings, gold crowns, and porcelain fused metal crowns are the opposite of what biomimetic dentists aim to provide for their patients. These procedures involve replacing natural tooth structure with foreign material that doesn't have the same function or biomechanics of natural teeth. As such, it can cause problems with fractured teeth and causing the need for root canals due to the invasiveness of the treatment.
Instead of removing large portions of the tooth in addition to the decay, biomimetic dentistry uses modern adhesives and bonding techniques to instead bond the natural tooth with inlays and onlays to allow functional stress to pass through the tooth. This restores the tooth to its former biologic, esthetic, and functional state.
In addition to providing biomimetic dentistry, Dr. Bial is also a highly skilled dental implants dentist in Bremerton, WA. He provides a variety of cosmetic and restorative procedures at his practice, and is a preferred Invisalign dentist in Bremerton, WA.
Dr. Bial has been practicing dentistry for several decades. He completed his DDS degree at the University of Illinois, College of Dentistry at the Medical Center in Chicago, IL. He served in the United States Navy for 24 years where he received extensive training in general dentistry, periodontics, and orthodontics. He has also attended the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies to learn the latest procedures, tools, and techniques in dentistry. Dr. Bial is now retired from the military and is active in several professional organizations, including the American Academy of Periodontology, the Kitsap Dental Society, the American Dental Association, and the Root Canals R Us study club.
