8 Advantages of Bioclear Over Porcelain Veneers

Bioclear may be the new veneers

Move over porcelain veneers and say hello to Bioclear!

Porcelain veneers have long been the go-to cosmetic dentistry service for a total smile makeover, but Bioclear may be an even better option for you.

Bioclear Matrix is a method of cosmetic care that uses a combination of advanced techniques and dental composite materials to transform smiles. This method eliminates the black triangle gaps between teeth, smooths the surface of teeth, and can also improve the shape after you’ve experienced chipping. Bioclear always helps protect teeth against staining and general wear and tear.

If you know you want to change your smile, here are 8 reasons why you might want to consider Bioclear instead of porcelain veneers.

1. Bioclear doesn’t require any removal of healthy tooth enamel.

Did you know that porcelain veneers require your dentist to remove some of your natural tooth? To compensate for the porcelain veneers, your dentist will need to remove some of your tooth enamel. Modern techniques have reduced the amount of enamel that needs to be removed, but some level of removal is always necessary.

Bioclear requires no removal of tooth enamel, saving and always strengthening your natural teeth with its layer of dental composite. 

2. It is reversible and doesn’t inhibit future cosmetic treatment.

Once you have porcelain veneers placed, you’ll always need them. If your porcelain veneers become damaged or if you find you no longer like the way they look, you’ll need to replace them with a different set, but you won’t be able to simply remove them.

Bioclear is completely reversible. If you decide you no longer like them or you’re ready to move forward with a different cosmetic procedure, the material will be removed, and you’ll have your natural teeth back.

3. Bioclear is completed in a single appointment with your dentist.

Porcelain veneers take time. From start to finish, you may need to schedule three or four appointments — possibly more. Each appointment takes an hour or more out of your busy day and requires you to rearrange your schedule. Bioclear is a much simpler process in comparison.

With Bioclear, you’ll see your dentist for an evaluation to determine candidacy then return for your second appointment where the composite will be applied. You’ll walk out of your appointment with your brand new smile!

4. Chipping and other minor damages are easily repaired.

If you accidentally bite down on an ice cube or a hard piece of food, you might chip the edge of your porcelain veneers or Bioclear. Porcelain veneers aren’t easily repaired when chips or similar damage occur. In some cases, you may even need to get a completely new set.

Bioclear is easily repaired, and though it’s unlikely you’ll chip it, you can rest assured if something does happen, you won’t be stuck with an expensive or time-consuming “repair bill.”

5. Bioclear is a more affordable cosmetic investment than veneers.

Porcelain veneers are a worthy investment, but they are on more of the expensive side as far as cosmetic dentistry procedures go. Bioclear is a more affordable option, ranging from 25% to 50% less expensive than a typical set of porcelain veneers.

The exact cost of Bioclear comes down to many different factors, but you’ll be able to look over an accurate quote after an evaluation with your dentist.

6. Bioclear has an impressive lifespan of about 10 years or more.

The composite material used with the Bioclear technique is extremely durable, averaging between 10 and 15 years of wear before needing to be replaced. This lifespan is very comparable to porcelain veneers, which also average between 10 and 15 years.

By choosing Bioclear over porcelain veneers, you’ll be gaining a ton of advantages without sacrificing longevity.

7. Correcting a Bioclear smile is much easier and less time-consuming.

Sometimes after you’ve had porcelain veneers placed, you might find you don’t quite like the shape as much as you thought you would. In this event, you and your dentist will need to design a new set.

Correcting Bioclear is far simpler and doesn’t necessarily require starting over from scratch like porcelain veneers. In most cases, your dentist can spot-fix a flaw in a single appointment.

8. The low-stress application is ideal for anxious patients.

If you experience dental anxiety, you’ll find that Bioclear is a more gentle process compared to porcelain veneers. Since it’s so minimally invasive, there’s no discomfort and you’ll have peace of mind knowing your dentist won’t be changing your natural teeth.

Knowing you’ll be in and out with your brand new smile within a single visit is a great personal incentive to motivate yourself to go forward with cosmetic dentistry.
