Everyone wants a great looking smile, but very few of us were born with perfect teeth. What if you could have that elusive dream smile quickly, easily, and affordably? You can! Bioclear® makes it possible.
Bioclear® is a non-invasive, cosmetic treatment that enhances smiles. Dr. Rioux uses this revolutionary treatment to fill in black triangles left by gum recession or bone loss or as an alternative to a dental crown to repair a damaged tooth.
Many of our patients have never heard of Bioclear® and they have questions about this treatment. Here are the answers to some of your most asked questions.
Your Top Questions about Bioclear®
Q: What happens during the Bioclear® procedure?
A: First, any trace of biofilm must be removed from the teeth. This is done by gently scouring it away with a tiny instrument and cleaning powder just hard enough to remove the microscopic sticky layer that accumulates on the surface of the teeth without damaging the tooth surface.
Then, thin mylar forms that hug the tooth provide the mold for a new tooth surface. Liquid composite is injected into the forms. The resin is then hardened using a special ultraviolet light. The tooth is then shaped and polished to have a beautifully shiny and smooth finish.
Q: Why would I use Bioclear® instead of a crown?
A: The primary reason to opt for Bioclear® is that the treatment is so much more conservative, allowing the preservation of more natural tooth structure.
Also, a crown is more at risk to recurrent decay. Decay starts at the edge of the crown and can progress underneath it if not addressed right away. Most crowns block x-rays from allowing us to see what’s happening underneath it. This isn’t the case with a Bioclear® overlay.
Q: Will my insurance cover Bioclear® treatment?
A: Bioclear® is a new, beautiful and conservative alternative to traditional reductive porcelain dentistry. It is NOT covered by insurance. For posterior teeth, the cost of Bioclear® is often similar in out-of-pocket expense, but it conserves more tooth structure and your remaining dental benefits for other procedures if necessary.
