BIOCLEAR 1-VISIT RESTORATIONS
Are you noticing the dreaded “black triangles” or visible gaps throughout your smile? BioClear may be the perfect way to fill in these spaces and create a more confident appearance. This treatment method involves the use of a durable, seamlessly tooth-colored composite resin that bonds directly with the enamel surfaces; the treatment process is quicker and less invasive than dental crowns or porcelain veneers. Better yet, Dr. Lamond can complete your improvements in just one appointment for optimal convenience!
WHAT ARE THE BLACK TRIANGLES BETWEEN MY TEETH?
A gap or space between two teeth is also referred to as a diastema, which can appear as a dark black triangle of empty space that prematurely ages or distorts the smile. An estimated 1/3 of adults will notice these dark spaces in their own smiles, which can trap food and plaque or appear unsightly. Originally developed in 2007 by dentist and inventor Dr. David Clark, the Bioclear Matrix System is quickly gaining recognition as a modern, non-invasive approach to cosmetic and restorative dental care.
WHAT CAUSES GAPPED TEETH?
Spaces between teeth, also known as “gapped teeth,” commonly appear between the upper front teeth. While some may find this trait to be unique, a gap that develops over time in the smile may feel unwanted or disruptive and take a toll on one’s self-esteem. Closing gaps between teeth starts with understanding why the spaces have formed. You may experience spaces between your teeth for a number of reasons:
- There’s a discrepancy between the size of the jawbones and the size of the teeth.
- Your existing smile has missing or undersized teeth.
- Habits such as thumb-sucking or “tongue thrusting” lead to an incorrect swallowing reflex.
- Periodontal disease, bone loss, or a dental injury occurs.
HOW DOES BIOCLEAR WORK?
BioClear utilizes a strong, tooth-colored composite resin to match the natural color of your tooth and support its strength and structure. In the more recent advancements of the technology, the Bioclear 360° Veneer Matrix creates ultra-thin composite material and Cling-Fit technology to bond to the teeth and fill gaps, spaces, and dark triangles. The entire process is relatively simple and provides effective restorative care. As a result, patients experience many restorative and cosmetically esthetic benefits, such as a smile that looks and feels complete.
