Do you have unattractive black triangles in your smile near your gum line? Those little gaps, which often occur due to gum recession, are more than just a cosmetic annoyance that makes you look older. They can easily trap food and contribute to bad breath and tooth decay. Dr. Janet Tamo offers a treatment to get rid of those black triangles — BioClear bonding. Let’s discuss what this treatment is and how it may benefit you.
What Is Black Triangle Bonding with BioClear?
Traditional direct dental bonding uses a tooth-coloured composite resin to reshape teeth and hide their aesthetic flaws. Black triangle bonding with BioClear takes that process to a new level. It involves a technique that uses matrix to shape the bonding material and transform the teeth, thus filling in the black triangles and producing a natural-looking and youthful smile.
What Is the Process?
First, Dr. Tamo must remove the biofilm from the teeth. The biofilm is a natural layer of bacteria that would stop the bonding agent from adhering to the enamel. Then, matrix get placed over the teeth. The composite resin is warmed and injection molded into the matrix, which make sure that the resin takes on a shape that is in line with the natural curvature of teeth. Once she places the bonding material, Dr. Tamo hardens it with a special curing light, and removes the matrix. Finally, the teeth get polished to a natural-looking shine.
Benefits of BioClear
Benefits of BioClear include:
It is noninvasive. The traditional method for addressing black triangles, porcelain veneers, requires that the teeth be ground down. BioClear adds to the teeth rather than taking away from them.
It is durable. Your bonding can last for years if you take proper care of it. The only adjustment you might need to make to hygiene routine involves switching to a less abrasive toothpaste.
It looks completely natural. No one will be able to tell that you have had some restorative/cosmetic work done on your smile.
It is affordable. Black triangle bonding with BioClear costs less than porcelain veneers.
It is quick. Depending on how many teeth you need to have treated, your procedure could be completely done in a single appointment.
