As we age, some of us may begin to notice dark spaces between our teeth and gums, clinically known as open gingival embrasures. Many factors can cause these spaces to form, such as bone loss and movement of the teeth. Although this does not harm our teeth, it can make our smile look older and less healthy, as well as trap food.
Bioclear is a new technique that can be used to fill these gaps, creating a more youthful smile. The same method can be used to treat diastemas (a large vertical gap between two teeth) and undersized laterals (teeth that are much smaller than usual).
Not only is Bioclear minimally invasive and less expensive than porcelain veneers, it also produces better results than the traditional composite restoration. Instead of simply patching the tooth, the Bioclear method allows the entire tooth to be coated with a single layer of variable thickness composite material. The result is a natural and younger looking smile!
