Thank you for writing.
Since you want to use all the functionality of EntityFramework It seems that your best option is to edit either your Model or your Database schema, which will update the Model and vice versa. This way you will be able to bind to the same Model, however it will have the properties you need and the functionality of EntityFramework.
I hope this helps.
