BioClear Black Triangles & Tooth Rejuvenation
What is BioClear
Bioclear is an alternative to porcelain veneers and traditional “bonding”. Patients often prefer this method to correct gaps, colour discrepancies, and black triangles because it provides better esthetics than traditional bonding, but is more cost effective and requires less drilling than porcelain veneers.
This non-invasive procedure gives patients a fuller, more attractive smile. By filling in these small spaces between your teeth, your smile will look more radiant and your teeth will even be strengthened during the process!
As you age and your gums begin to recede, you may notice gaps, or small, triangular spaces developing between your teeth. These spaces may also form if you undergo orthodontic treatment to correct tooth crowding, or if you’ve experienced recession or periodontal (gum) disease. Dentists refer to these spaces as “black triangles”. If you would like to fill in black triangles for a more aesthetically pleasing smile, River District Dentistry can help with BioClear Anterior Composite Esthetics. This is a non-invasive procedure that can dramatically improve the appearance and health of your smile in one visit.
The Treatment Process
During the Bioclear procedure, one of our dentists will place a clear plastic matrix on either side of the affected tooth (which look like small, clear tabs). These are then filled with two types of composite resin, wrapping the entire tooth and filling in the spaces in your smile. When the process is complete, the form and shape of the treated tooth will be improved and any dark triangles will be a thing of the past!
Why Choose BioClear?
Black triangles are not just an aesthetic issue. As the gums recede, the small spaces can trap food particles, which can lead to a greater risk for bad breath, tooth decay, and gum disease. BioClear is an alternative to veneers and bonding because it often doesn’t require the removal of a lot of enamel which can lead to sensitivity and root canals. However, the absolute best esthetics will only be achieved with ceramic veneers.
In fact, adding to the structure of your tooth with BioClear actually strengthens it. BioClear is a non-invasive, long-lasting option for patients looking to enhance their smiles. Additionally, BioClear rejuvenation fees are less than the fees for ceramic crowns and veneers.
