Are you interested in enhancing your smile? Do the following concerns apply to you?

  • You have gaps between your teeth
  • You have spaces between your teeth after orthodontic treatment
  • You are unhappy with your small teeth
  • You want to enhance your smile but are unable to afford porcelain veneers
  • Your front teeth are worn, broken, or chipped
  • You have black triangles

The BIOCLEAR METHOD can fix multiple dental issues

The Bioclear Method is a conservative technique which can be used for multiple purposes. It can be used to fill in black triangles between teeth that form as we get older, after orthodontics/braces, or gum surgeries. It can also be used to close gaps between teeth, fix chipped or broken teeth and build up small teeth.

Black triangles are the 3rd most common cosmetic complaint of patients. Spaces often form near the gums as a result of bone loss and recession from gum and periodontal disease, aging, or movement of teeth either naturally or after orthodontics (braces or Invisalign). Some people hate these! Food gets caught all the time, and it’s the first thing they see when they smile. BioClear is considered the best way to close these spaces. The BioClear (Clark) Matrix system is a better alternative treatment to fix the black triangle teeth as often the gaps can be closed without the need for any tooth removal or preparation.

BioClear is one of the best ways to fix chipped and broken teeth. Teeth can be restored with no additional tooth structure is removed. It truly is the most conservative treatment possible.

Some people are born with small front teeth. When smaller teeth take away from a uniform look, BioClear composite resin can be used to lengthen smaller teeth. In addition, this treatment option can improve underdeveloped teeth. BioClear can improve your smile with absolutely no damage to the teeth.

Traditional Bonding Vs BioClear

BioClear is much more a process than a product. It is similar to cosmetic bonding in the base materials used but goes beyond the “freehand” aspect of bonding. BioClear uses a clear matrix and flowable composite to create a more controlled shape for each tooth. The composite is contained in a cocoon-like matrix so it adheres to the tooth more securely and looks more natural.

Porcelain Veneers Vs BioClear

Both BioClear and veneers can correct:

  • Discolored teeth
  • Crooked-looking teeth
  • Chipped teeth
  • Peg laterals
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Black triangles between teeth at the gum line

Both BioClear and veneers have an average lifespan of about 10 years, though the lifespan depends on how well you care for your teeth and how you use them. Veneers have been known to last multiple decades with cautious use, so this is one area in which BioClear and veneers are quite similar.

However, BioClear Method has a few advantages over Porcelain Veneers

  • The BioClear Method is usually more conservative.
    In most cases, porcelain veneer treatment requires the alteration of natural tooth structure. For this reason, veneers are a permanent cosmetic enhancement that must be kept up for life. The Bioclear Method is conservative, adding to rather than taking away from the structure of a tooth.
  • The BioClear Method is repairable.
    Porcelain Veneers are very strong, but they can chip, especially in people who grind their teeth or in an accident. Should a porcelain veneer chip or crack, repair often involves the replacement of the entire veneer. With BioClear’s dental composite technique, it is possible to reshape a damaged tooth quickly and affordably.
  • The BioClear Method is less expensive.
    While prices vary, the BioClear Method is usually about half the cost of a Porcelain Veneer, which makes it much more affordable to many people.
