At Kim Rioux DDS, we are excited to be able to provide the most conservative treatment options available today!

Bioclear® offers our patients effective treatment for dental black triangles and other cosmetic issues with minimally invasive treatment and beautiful results.

What is Bioclear?

Bioclear® is a minimally invasive and cost-effective treatment. Anatomic mylar forms that hug your teeth are injection molded with a warm composite material, which is color matched to your teeth. The forms are removed, leaving behind a smooth, contoured composite that has a beautiful shine, giving you a healthy and youthful appearing smile.

Treatment of Black Triangles

It’s estimated that almost 1/3 of adults have black triangles. These are caused by bone loss and recession of the gum line, and sometimes because of movement in the teeth.  These dark spaces between the teeth can make your teeth appear old. These areas are also prone to accumulate food debris, encouraging excessive plaque build-up.

When your tooth enamel is still healthy, there is no need to hide it with veneers. Using a special composite bonding technique, Dr. Rioux can close these gaps improving the health of the gum and the appearance of your smile

For Tooth Repair and Protection

Here is a recent case that Dr. Rioux treated using Bioclear®The tooth on the left has thin, undermined enamel on the cusps and a crack going through the pulpal floor. Just a  few years ago it would have been crowned.  Today she treated it with a  Bioclear® Overlay. 

Case study of treatment with Bioclear by Dr. Rioux.
Bioclear® repaired this tooth without the need for a more expensive and invasive crown procedure.

This method protects vulnerable tooth structure while conserving other, healthy parts of the tooth that would have otherwise been sacrificed to a crown preparation. 

Had this tooth been prepared for a crown, we would have had to remove enamel 360 degrees around the tooth as well as take down the chewing surface.  This procedure is more conservative of tooth structure and less likely to have post-operative sensitivity.

Our patients love this conservative alternative to traditional treatment!
