Bioclear is a quick, cost-effective way to correct gaps, discolorations, or chips in your smile. But will it last?
The short answer is yes, Bioclear is much more durable than porcelain veneers and traditional bonding. Read on to learn why this simple method of changing the size, shape, and color of your teeth may be right for you.
What is Bioclear?
Bioclear is a type of dental bonding that builds up a tooth using composite filling material. Adding a plastic matrix to the white composite filling material. The combination is more precise and stronger than traditional bonding. It can be used to:
- Fill in black triangles that appear between teeth as you age
- Improve the color of your teeth.
- Correct chips and cracks
- Match undersized teeth
- Even edges
- Close diastemas or natural gaps that occur between your teeth
Your dentist will place the plastic matrices around your teeth instead of under the gum line and match the composite material to your teeth. The result is natural, healthy, and youthful. No one will know you’ve had cosmetic dentistry, but your confidence will shine through!
Bioclear vs. veneers
Veneers, thin porcelain shells that are placed on the front of your teeth, have long been the best way to improve the shape, size, and color of your teeth. But veneers are an invasive procedure — they require your dentist to remove a portion of your tooth enamel. Once removed, enamel doesn’t grow back. That means you’ll always need to wear a veneer. On the other hand, Bioclear is much more conservative. It’s a noninvasive, painless procedure that can be completed in one or two office visits. And best of all, it is reversible.
Veneers are made of porcelain, which can crack and break over time. When chipped, veneers usually can’t be repaired. They have to be replaced altogether, which can get costly and time-consuming since getting veneers can take several office visits over the course of a few weeks. Bioclear can be repaired at any time simply by adding more composite resin to the tooth.
Compared to veneers, Bioclear is also much more budget-friendly. They are an affordable way to get the smile you’ve always wanted.
How long does Bioclear dental treatment last?
Bioclear is a long-lasting cosmetic alternative. On average, it can last up to 10 years. If you take good care of your teeth, it can last longer. If it does become chipped or damaged, it’s relatively easy to repair in a simple office visit.
