Here at Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we are always on top of the latest and greatest technologies and treatments in the dental world. That’s why, we recently became BioClear certified. BioClear is a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment that involves wrapping dental composite around a tooth via plastic matrices to form a tooth that’s both beautiful and fully functional. While it came to life in 2007, BioClear has only recently increased in popularity.
We are pleased to offer BioClear in our office to patients with a variety of concerns. It may be used to close spaces between gamp or fill in black triangles between teeth that arise as we age. Or, it may be right for patients who have undergone gum surgery or completed orthodontic treatment.
While BioClear is considered a bonding process, it differs from traditional bonding because it allows a dentist to achieve fuller and more attractive results in a more precise manner. It eliminates the need to make major structural changes to the teeth.
In addition, BioClear serves as an excellent alternative to crowns, veneers, and other popular restorative treatments. It is more conservative and more affordable than other treatments. To determine whether you’re a good candidate for BioClear, we encourage you visit our office. We’ll perform a thorough evaluation of your teeth and gums and inform you of the ideal option.
Advantages of BioClear
There are a variety of noteworthy advantages of BioClear including:
A Natural Appearance
Perhaps the greatest benefit of BioClear is that it offers a completely natural appearance. If you receive this treatment, nobody will have any idea (unless you tell them, of course!)
One Visit Treatment
If you lead a busy life, you may not have the time or desire to commit to treatments that take multiple trips to our office. The good news is that your BioClear treatment can be completed in one visit.
BioClear is designed to last. You can enjoy its benefits long after you receive the treatment. Most patients are impressed with its lifespan as it’s considerably longer than composite veneers.
We know that dental treatments can be costly, regardless of whether or not you have insurance. That’s why, we’re pleased to report that BioClear is affordable. You’ll find it to be less expensive than porcelain veneers. In most cases, BioClear restorations are 20 to 50% less than the cost of porcelain veneers. Many patients who thought veneers were the only option are thrilled to learn about BioClear and its affordability.
Another huge perk of BioClear is that it’s minimally invasive. There’s no need to grind the teeth so there’s less discomfort and downtime for you.
A Great Alternative to Bonding
It’s important to understand that BioClear is not a bonding procedure. Even though it also involves composite, it uses special matrices and a cutting-edge composite injection teeth to allow the restoration to be about 3 times stronger than bonding.
Can Improve a Variety of Conditions
We love BioClear for its versatility. It can improve a variety of common dental conditions such as uneven teeth, gapped teeth, gaps and spaces between teeth, and black triangles. It can also be a good option if you often get food trapped between your teeth.
