At Costa Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, we take great pride in offering our patients the latest treatments and technologies. That’s why, we recently became certified in BioClear, a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment that can resolve a variety of issues including:
- Black triangles
- Poorly shaped teeth
- Gaps in a smile
BioClear veneers are similar to traditional dental bonding but they are molded around the teeth. They involve thin sheets of clear mylar and create mold for the veneers around the natural teeth. A heated composite is injected into the mold and can be polished and reshaped once its cooled.
BioClear is a higher strength than traditional bonding and offers greater stain resistance and a better ability to fill in back triangles along the gum line. Compared to veneers, crowns, and other popular restorative treatments, BioClear is more affordable, less time consuming, and easier to repair.
If you’re wondering whether BioClear is an alternative to Invisalign, you’ll need to visit our office so that we can evaluate your teeth and gums and determine exactly what needs to be corrected. If you have a few gaps in your smile or a few poorly shaped teeth, BioClear may help. However, if your case is more severe, Invisalign may be the better option. Invisalign may not be able to resolve an overbite, underbite, crooked teeth, and other types of problems.
