Background Biomimetics is the study of the formation, structure, or function of biologically produced substances and materials (such as enzymes or silk) and biological mechanisms and processes (such as protein synthesis or photosynthesis) especially for the purpose of synthesizing similar products by artificial mechanisms which mimic natural ones. Discussion Humans has been in a process of continuously deriving ideas and innovations from nature for the day to day problems of a living. As teeth do not have natural method of repair, Biomimetic principles should be used to artificially repair the tooth to its natural functions and aesthetics. A material fabricated by biomimetic technique based on natural processes found in biological systems is called a biomimetic material. There are two main concepts concerning the biomimetic approach in dentistry: the restorative approach, that is the act of restoring the tooth to its former condition, and the regenerative approach, that is the process of producing new tissues following damage. Conclusions When the biomimetics meets physiology, the results will be long-lasting, the function will be preserved, and the aesthetics will meet the patient’s satisfaction.
