New York Center for Biomimetic Dentistry
Biomimetic Dentists study and strive to fully understand the stress and strain of individual teeth under function. This allows restorative techniques to be optimized and proper materials to be used to rebuild the various layers of your teeth. Unfortunately, most dentists are still using antiquated Civil War age fillings and crowns in a world of space age materials and techniques.
Human teeth have not changed for the past 200,000 years. Their perfect design is a balance between biologic, mechanical, functional, and esthetic parameters. Biomimetic Dentists like Dr. Alex Shvartsman of Smithtown, NY and Dr. Howard Golan of Manhasset, NY focus on reproducing the biomechanical, physical and esthetic properties of intact healthy teeth using the latest techniques and materials.
Biomimetic Dentistry is the most current, science supported approach to treating weak, fractured, and decayed teeth in a way that keeps them strong, seals them from bacterial invasion an makes them last significantly longer.
Careful sealing against infection eliminates the need for 60% to 90% of the crowns and root canal treatments of traditional "drill and fill" dentistry. Dr. Shvartsman and Dr. Golan do not simply "dig out decay and fill holes". They restore teeth using modern adhesive materials, composite fillings and porcelains in a way that rebuilds teeth as close to their original structure, function and esthetics as possible with today's most current dental materials. Common problems of tooth sensitivity and pain on biting associated with white fillings are virtually eliminated when Biomimetic adhesive techniques are used properly.
The underlying principle of Biomimetic Dentistry is conservative dentistry. There is nothing as good as your own natural teeth. We make every effort to conserve as much of your own healthy teeth as possible. This approach leads to strong, longer lasting fillings, onlays, veneers and crowns.
Together with Dr. Howard Golan, Dr. Shvartsman is a co-founder of New York Center for Biomimetic Dentistry. They are only a handful of dentists which are trained in Biomimetic Dentistry in the tri-state area. Currently a team of dentists, including Dr. Shvartsman and Dr. Golan, are in the process of educating other dentists in the philosophy and techniques of Biomimetic Dentistry so that more patients may benefit from healthier, longer lasting dental restorations in the United States. There are currently only 170 Biomimetic Dentists in the United States.
