Dental veneers are a popular method in cosmetic dentistry to treat different esthetic and functional issues. People choose veneers to correct maligned or asymmetrical teeth. They can also correct for shade and rebuild chipped or broken teeth. Depending on the case, veneers usually require at least some, and sometimes a lot, of tooth reduction. Veneers are a beautiful and long lasting restorative option, but new technology and innovation continue to present us with new options! We love to have choices. We are always interested in methods that allow us to be more conservative with tooth structure and more efficient with time. The Bioclear method can be a good, more conservative alternative to a veneer or even a crown.
Bioclear is an advanced method where composite resin is heat molded under pressure around a tooth, and can be shaped as desired. Like a veneer or a crown, it can help improve a smile by correcting for shape, minor misalignment, and color. It is especially applicable in rebuilding chipped and broken or gapped teeth.
Bioclear can be completed in a single visit, and usually requires very little if any tooth preparation. It combines the speed and simplicity of composite bonding with the long lasting strength of a veneer.
As mentioned above, there are multiple tooth flaws that Bioclear veneers treat. Some of them are as follows:
If you have discoloration, minor misalignment or a tooth size or shape discrepancy, Bioclear can be an excellent option to improve esthetics. If you have considered cosmetic improvement, but aren’t ready to commit to crowns or veneers, Bioclear is a great alternative.
Many people experience gum disease or recession, which can leave tiny, black triangles between the teeth. These spaces are up near the gumline and can catch food and compromise esthetics. Bioclear is an excellent, long lasting option to fill these spaces in one visit.
There are various reasons people can experience chipping and tooth wear. With Bioclear, it has become easier torebuild lost volume. It is a perfect solution to help people struggling with enamel loss. Moreover, it is an ideal method to help people with small teeth build teeth volume. Bioclear delivers exceptional results when treating these problems.
Either in combination with orthodontics or as a stand-alone treatment, we have used Bioclear to effectively and beautifully close spaces that our patients have struggled to find a solution for.
