Biomimicry, modeling relationships at the tooth/resin interface

Historically, dental restorative materials have had little in common with the nature of tooth-structure. We have learned much about the processes and systems nature utilizes for functional success and defenses when under attack. Keeping in mind our biological entities and process, can resins be developed to mimic key natural processes for the success of a restoration? With our minds on nature and it’s structures and systems, let us look at what aspects we now mimic and what is yet to be discovered for the best outcomes for our patients.
