 Dr. David Alleman and Dr. Davey Alleman are vanguards in the Biomimetic dental movement and they’re here to discuss their article “The Protocols of Biomimetic Restorative Dentistry.” Biomimetic dentistry is revolutionizing the approach to restorative dentistry. It is an approach to dentistry that abides by the principle that in order to adequately restore teeth, we have to mimic life. In this lesson, the Allemans will discuss the tenets of biomimetic dentistry.
