What is Bioclear?
Bioclear is a novel treatment in dentistry that serves cosmetic and restorative functions. It’s stronger than dental bonding but can address many of the same issues. It’s also an alternative to porcelain veneers.
What can Bioclear treat?
Bioclear treats many common natural tooth defects as well as damage from disease, decay, or tooth injuries. Instead of getting crowns, veneers, or bonding for your teeth, consider getting Bioclear to fix or conceal:
Gaps between teeth (diastema)
Black triangular gaps at the base of your teeth
Tooth wear from bruxism
Stains and discoloration
Damage from decay
Unlike veneers, Bioclear doesn’t require you to alter the structures of the teeth you intend to treat. Dr. An won’t need to remove any enamel in order to accommodate the composite resin.
What is the process of getting Bioclear?
Bioclear treatments can take place in a single appointment: You can leave the Health Centered Dentistry the very same day with a more symmetrical or uniform smile.
When you first come in, Dr. An thoroughly cleans your teeth. He pushes the gums back on the teeth he’ll be treating and removes the invisible sticky biofilm from the surfaces.
Once your teeth are clean and ready, Dr. An chooses a thin form to use for your Bioclear treatment. He secures it under your gum and injects warm composite resin into it. Once the resin is in the form, it looks like a natural part of your tooth.
Dr. An hardens the resin using a curing light. Once the resin is solid and in place, Dr. An polishes the tooth and makes sure the resin and form blend in with your natural teeth.
How long do the results of Bioclear last?
Bioclear is a lot like other cosmetic and restorative treatments in that the secret to long-lasting results is excellent oral hygiene. To get the most out of your Bioclear treatment, you should continue brushing and flossing daily and prioritize professional cleanings. As long as you take care of your mouth, your Bioclear results can last for a decade or longer.
