What Is the Bioclear Method?

If you've ever looked at your smile and wished you could change one or more aspects, but you were worried about some of the invasive options for cosmetic alterations, Bioclear is for you. The Bioclear Method is a transformative cosmetic dental treatment that presents a novel option for enhancing smiles. The Bioclear Method utilizes ultra-thin tooth-shaped forms to create long-lasting, stain-resistant restorations similar to veneers.

These flexible custom forms are the frames we use to build your Bioclear restorations. These matrices allow us to achieve lifelike curves and angles previously seen as challenging to create with thick, flat matrix systems.

Whether you're dealing with gaps between teeth, black triangles where gums meet your teeth, chipped edges, or even traumatic injuries to front teeth, Bioclear can address many issues. A favorite application of the Bioclear Method is enhancing the appearance of misshapen teeth, making them fuller and more natural. Bioclear offers exceptional aesthetic results and represents an affordable alternative to traditional veneers and crowns.

Our Bioclear Process

Our Bioclear process is designed to provide you with a seamless experience and outstanding results. Here's an overview of the steps we take to transform your smile:

  1. Ideal Shade Selection: Before we start the Bioclear cosmetic dental process, we'll identify the ideal shade to enhance your existing smile. Many patients use teeth whitening before this step to achieve a brighter, whiter smile.
  2. Preparation: We gently clean your teeth using a mild abrasive to ensure the filling material has a secure hold.
  3. Matrix Placement: Our team places tooth-shaped matrices around each tooth. These matrices act as a funnel for the warm, tooth-colored filling material to form around each tooth in the desired shape.
  4. Artistry and Polish: This is where our expertise in providing Bioclear really shines. Each tooth is shaped and polished, giving it a glossy, lifelike appearance.

Easy Repairs for Bioclear Restorations

At Hardy Dental, we follow a proven process to provide easy repairs and alterations for our Bioclear restorations. Bioclear can be easily repaired in cases involving chipped restorations, whereas porcelain veneers often require complete replacement. Additionally, using dental composite in the Bioclear Method allows for simple modifications if adjustments are needed. With this method, you can experience peace of mind during daily use. Repairs are simple and cost-effective even if your highly durable Bioclear restorations become damaged.

Bioclear FAQs

While repairing and revitalizing your smile with Bioclear is a minimally invasive process, it's normal to have questions about this relatively new treatment. Our team is always available to answer your questions and address your concerns. Some of the frequently asked questions we get from our patients include:

What cosmetic dental issues can Bioclear treat?

The Bioclear Method effectively addresses a range of cosmetic dental concerns, including:

  • Black triangles at the gum margin
  • Spacing issues
  • Crooked teeth
  • Food traps
  • Uneven edges
  • Small front teeth

Yes, Bioclear restorations are stain-resistant. However, it's important to maintain regular brushing and routine dental cleanings to keep up the appearance of your Bioclear Veneers.

Unlike traditional bonding, the Bioclear Method eliminates ledges and gaps, ensuring teeth are stronger, more attractive, and less susceptible to issues like staining and cavities. This approach preserves tooth structure and prevents staining or leakage.
