What is the Bioclear Method?
The Bioclear Method is a technique where dental composite is wrapped around a tooth by an injection overmolding process using special plastic matrices. The result of this precise method is outstanding beauty, strength, and functionality.
How is this different than bonding?
Traditional composite resin bonding is based on old techniques. While it has it’s place, it also has many shortcomings. Traditional bonding can leave ledges and gaps at the margins which accumulate bacteria leading to staining, chipping, cavities, and bleeding gums. The Bioclear Method eliminates these ledges and gaps and leaves teeth fuller, stronger and more beautiful, while doing little to no damage at all to the tooth.
How is the Bioclear Method different than Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers can give beautiful results especially on people who have teeth that are worn, chipped and full of old broken fillings, but they do have some drawbacks. In many cases the Bioclear Method has many advantages over veneers.
- The Bioclear method is more conservative. The vast majority of the time, tooth structure needs to be cut away to place Porcelain Veneers. The Bioclear Method is an additive technique. Composite material is added to existing tooth structure. Being an additive technique, Bioclear treatment actually strengthens teeth.
- The Bioclear Method is repairable. Should a Porcelain Veneer chip or crack due to excessive force or injury, repair often involves the replacement of the entire veneer. Since the Bioclear Method uses Dental Composite, if the teeth chip, they can be to and repaired fairly easily and inexpensively.
- The Bioclear Method is less expensive than Porcelain Veneers making smile enhancement much more accessible.
If you have black triangles or spaces between your front teeth—then the Bioclear Method may be the ideal solution.
Approximately one-third of adults have black triangles in their smiles. Black triangles often form as we get older, occur after orthodontics/braces, or gum surgeries. Most often found along the gum line between the front teeth, these unsightly dark areas draw the eye away from what may otherwise be a bright and attractive smile.
The Bioclear Method is an amazing, conservative technique which can be used to eliminate black triangles, close spaces between teeth, and even rebuild whole smiles in a beautiful, strong, conservative manner.
