Bioclear is the best way to fix black triangles.
As we age, after braces, with gum and periodontal disease spaces often form near the gums. Some people hate these! Food gets caught all the time, and it’s the first thing they see when they smile. There is no better way to close these spaces than with Bioclear.
Below are examples of closing spaces that are called “Black Triangles”. Many people get these dark spaces between their teeth as they age, or after gum surgeries. Spaces between teeth after braces is another common place to see these “Black Triangles”. Patients may have been told in the past that these couldn’t be fixed. Or if a fix was attempted, they often become food traps, collecting plaque and food everytime one eats. Now with the Bioclear Method, these can be fixed conservatively and predictably.

What is the Bioclear Method?
The Bioclear Method is a technique in which dental composite is wrapped around a tooth using special plastic matrices to properly form a fully functional, beautiful tooth.
How is this different than bonding?
Traditional bonding that is often used is based off of old techniques. While it has it’s place, it also has many shortcomings. Traditional bonding often leaves ledges that bacteria and plaque get caught on that can lead to staining, chipping, cavities, and bleeding gums. The Bioclear Method leaves teeth fuller, stronger and more beautiful, while doing little to no damage at all to the tooth, making it completely reversible.
How is the Bioclear Method different than Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are a way to cosmetically change the front of the teeth to make them more beautiful. Here at Austin Artistic Dental we are big fans of Porcelain Veneers, especially on people who have teeth that are worn, chipped and full of old broken fillings. The Bioclear Method has a few advantages over Porcelain Veneers.
1. The Bioclear Method is usually more conservative.
Despite what some claim, the vast majority of the time, tooth structure needs to be taken away to place the Porcelain Veneers. The Bioclear Method is an additive technique. You’re adding to the tooth, making it stronger.
2. The Bioclear Method is repairable.
Porcelain Veneers are very strong, but they can chip, especially in people who grind their teeth (which is most people) or in an accident. When they do chip, they often can not be repaired and must be completely replaced, which can be costly. Since the Bioclear Method uses Dental Composite, not porcelain, if the teeth chip, they can be added to and repaired fairly easily and inexpensively.
3. The Bioclear Method is less expensive.
While prices vary, the Bioclear Method is usually about half the cost of a Porcelain Veneer, which makes it much more affordable to many people.

Below is an example of old-school bonding. The overhang, food trap, and overall poor contours are apparent. Unfortunately, without Bioclear this is a common result. The final Bioclear result is much more healthy and aesthetically pleasing.
