As we get older, there can be unwelcome dark spaces that begin to appear between our teeth. While it adds an older appearance to our smile, these dental dark triangles can also collect food debris and plaque. These can be the result of bone loss, recession of the gum line or movement of the teeth.
Some people have naturally occurring gaps between their teeth and, while not unhealthy, can sometimes be a source of embarrassment or low self-esteem. To treat those dark spaces in your teeth, Dr. Sara at Pinnacle Peak Family Dentistry offers Bioclear. She is the only certified dentist in Scottsdale, Arizona who has gone through all the training.
How does BioClear work?
Previously, dentists used to repair these black triangles and gaps in teeth with porcelain veneers, which is a method for restoring function and appearance. Using veneers means removing portions of the tooth surface to make room. With BioClear, though, the natural tooth can be preserved so there is no additional loss of minerals. It achieves aesthetic beauty in a healthy way.
BioClear is beneficial for posterior teeth because the injection molding technique can often be used to prevent having to place a dental crown. While there are many instances where you need to get a crown, we can now restore teeth with BioClear before having to go to the extremes of a dental crown.
Using composite material, BioClear easily bonds to any part of the tooth to close the gaps, align uneven teeth, cover chips and even out the color. It is a minimally invasive procedure that is also cost effective and uses clear forms which are filled with a composite material matched to the shade of your teeth. When the forms are removed, a smooth contoured composite is left behind, which means your teeth will appear to emerge naturally.
