Bioclear Treatment Calgary, AB

bioclear dentist calgary abBioclear® is a treatment option for a range of cosmetic and restorative dental health needs. A modern bonding technique, Bioclear provides advantages over traditional tooth bonding and can sometimes alleviate the need for more invasive procedures such as a dental crown.

A unique alternative to tooth bonding, veneers, and crowns, Bioclear is also called injection over-molding. The composite material is able to be shaped on and around the tooth for a more stable result. This aspect of the process creates more tooth structure to support your smile and minimize the risk of future damage. Additional benefits of the Bioclear method include:

  • Economical: for many needs, Bioclear can offer economical treatment when compared to porcelain veneers and other options.
  • Conservative: the process offers a conservative approach to many common dental problems.
  • Repairable: Bioclear can be repaired if chips or damage occur.
  • Non-irritating: Bioclear does not irritate gum tissue and can often support improved gum health after being placed to close gaps and dark triangles.

Bioclear: how does it work?

One of the key advantages of Bioclear is the minimal impact on healthy tooth structure. There is typically no need to remove healthy tooth enamel when using Bioclear, only in areas where there is damage or decay.

Bioclear is a minimally or non-invasive treatment, depending on what is being treated. The composite is often added to the existing tooth structure, improving the integrity of the tooth.

Placed in a similar manner as tooth bonding, the material is skilfully applied and shaped by Dr. Chahal to blend seamlessly with your natural smile. The material is warmed before application to make it malleable and able to be sculpted on and around the tooth. Once in place, it will be cured and polished for a smooth surface.

What Can Bioclear Treat?

The Bioclear method has many applications. Common uses include:

  • Dark triangles: dental triangles are a common cosmetic concern. Bioclear is highly successful at closing black triangles.
  • Tooth damage: Bioclear can be used to address chips, cracks and worn teeth.
  • Gaps between teeth: close tooth gaps with Bioclear without having to degrade healthy teeth for placing crowns or veneers.

Dr. Chahal will work with you to explore your treatment options when addressing these dental concerns. When considering all available options, Bioclear can often offer more comprehensive benefits for long-term oral health and wellness. Bioclear is especially effective for treating dental triangles, creating a more symmetrical and healthy-looking smile. When closing black triangles with Bioclear, we are also improving the stability of your existing tooth structure.

Bioclear FAQs

How long does Bioclear last?

For most patients, Bioclear can last up to 10 years or more. The ability to repair any chips or damage over time will improve the longevity of your result. Good oral hygiene and regular dental care also play a role in how long your dentistry will last.

Can Bioclear be removed?

Bioclear is not a permanent dental restoration and can be removed or replaced as needed.

What are dental triangles?

Dental triangles or black triangles are areas along the gum line and between the teeth where there are small but visible gaps, often creating a “black” or dark spot between the teeth. They can form for a variety of reasons, from lifestyle habits such as smoking to aging. Some patients have these early on due to the size and spacing of their teeth.

Dr. Chahal will evaluate your teeth and gums and ensure no underlying dental problems are contributing to the appearance of black triangles that should be addressed as part of your overall treatment.
