Dental veneers can transform a smile. The American Dental Association defines these as "thin, custom-made shells crafted of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front side of teeth." These restorations are typically made of porcelain or resin and can last for many years. There are some situations in which veneers need to be replaced; most…
What is Bioclear?
Bioclear® is an innovative bonding technique that improves smiles by fixing minor imperfections such as chipped, cracked, and uneven teeth. Bioclear is a safe and effective alternative to traditional veneers. While the term bonding is used with Bioclear, the procedure is much different than traditional dental bonding.
Reviewing Bioclear for an improved smile
The following is an overview of what BIoclear is, how it benefits patients, when Bioclear is recommended, and how it compares with traditional veneers. This should help you make an appropriate decision as to whether or not you should schedule a consultation to learn more about the treatment option.
Bioclear® is a cosmetic treatment procedure that improves the shade, shape, and overall appearance of teeth. The Bioclear procedure involves the use of a composite material and an “injection molding” technique to ensure quality results. It serves as an alternative to more traditional cosmetic treatment methods, such as dental bonding and porcelain veneers. Bioclear treatment only takes a single dental visit, is gentle on gum, and is reversible.
The benefits of Bioclear
Bioclear is primarily used for cosmetic purposes, although it can improve oral health and function as well for certain patients. Notable benefits of Bioclear include:
- Relatively lower cost
- Only takes one visit
- Minimally invasive
- Reversible treatment
- Durable with proper care
Bioclear is a minimally invasive procedure that is typically more affordable than veneers. The results are also reversible as no enamel needs removal before the application of the Bioclear material. The procedure only takes one short dental visit as well.
When dentists recommend Bioclear
Anyone who is not happy with their smile due to imperfections with visible front teeth should consider how Bioclear can benefit them. The most common reasons a dentist may recommend Bioclear include:
- Chips & cracks
- Teeth gaps
- Dark triangles
- Discoloration (stains)
- Teeth gaps
- Teeth decay
Bioclear is personalized for each patient, and the dentist can mold the Bioclear material to allow for a natural-looking and comfortable smile.
Bioclear vs. traditional veneers
Bioclear is often compared with traditional veneers. The main difference between the two is that traditional veneers are irreversible, whereas the treatment is not as permanent as Bioclear. This is because the Bioclear process does not require any removal of enamel. In addition, Bioclear can be placed in a single dental visit, while traditional veneers require the customization of the veneers in a lab.
What to expect long-term with Bioclear
Patients can care for their teeth after Bioclear the same as they would natural teeth, which includes brushing regularly, flossing, and using mouthwash. Regular check-up visits are encouraged as well. With proper care, Bioclear can last for more than ten years.
