If you are unhappy with the appearance of your front teeth because of black triangles, you have many options to improve their look. BioClear composites are one of the newest, and they offer many benefits. One of our dentists Dr Adnan Aslam has undergone additional training to be able to utilise this highly sought after technique, something that very few dentists are able to provide. BioClear is done in one visit (after assessing suitability), so you don’t have to wait for final results. It’s also less expensive than traditional porcelain veneers. It doesn’t require that your natural teeth be modified, so it retains more natural tooth structure, which is good for the long-term health and survival of your teeth. Best of all, it gives beautiful, consistent results.
Benefits of BioClear Veneers
BioClear was designed to address many of the common problems of both dental bonding and porcelain veneers. BioClear veneers:
- Are great for filling in “black triangles”
- Creates attractive, uniformly colored teeth
- Can be completed in a single office visit
- Are more stain resistant than dental bonding
- Are more durable than dental bonding
- Are healthy for gums
- Are less expensive than porcelain veneers
- Repair more easily if damaged
Because of these significant benefits, BioClear is rapidly increasing in popularity. We find this technique is great for us because it lets us give you great results efficiently. And patients who have had it done love the results, the speed, and, honestly, the cost!
How BioClear Works on Black Triangles
BioClear is a dramatic advancement in the way we approach dental composite restorations, utilising flowable composites that have the texture of a thick liquid rather than a paste.
The BioClear veneers technique begins with thin clear mylar sheets that are used to wrap around the teeth, providing the mould for the new tooth. These can slip under the gum line, so the restoration can be uniform all the way down below the visual portion of the tooth. This is what makes BioClear veneers such a great treatment for black triangles along the gum line–they can fill in the base of the tooth as easily as the top.
Is BioClear Right for You?
There are some people who are perfect candidates for BioClear veneers. This includes people who have:
- Healthy teeth that don’t need tissue removed
- Sensitive gums that might react to other techniques
- Black triangles along the gums that need be filled in
- Limited budget
If you have damaged teeth, decay, or if you’re looking for the absolute best appearance, we will recommend lab-produced porcelain veneers or crowns.
