Is biomimetic dentistry the same as adhesive dentistry?

Not exactly, however adhesive dentistry is fundamental to biomimetic dentistry. Biomimetic dentistry requires, materials which have properties similar to enamel, dentin, and DEJ in conjunction with the absolute maximum adhesion and bond strength. In the natural tooth, enamel and dentin have an extremely high bond strength and this needs to be re-created for a restored tooth to function like a natural tooth. Simplified adhesive techniques and inferior materials fail to adequately restore the tooth to the standard necessary to be considered biomimetic. Only the best and strongest adhesion is able to make a tooth behave biomimetically.
