Noninvasive Cosmetic Dentistry
If you have dental anxiety, you should be comforted to know that several cosmetic dentistry approaches can improve your smile without being invasive. These procedures can straighten teeth, lengthen them, reshape them, and brighten them without cutting or grinding your teeth.
One of these procedures most people don’t know about is BioClear. BioClear is a composite dental veneer made of a flowable resin with suspended inclusions for strength. We don’t have to alter your teeth to install BioClear restorations. Instead, we use a simple sheet of micro-thin mylar to create a mold around the teeth we want to reshape. Then we pour the flowable resin into the mold, where it forms your new tooth shape. We can use this to brighten, reshape, and extend your teeth. We can also use it to close gaps between teeth and fill in black triangles.
If you have more straightening than is practical to correct with BioClear, we might recommend Invisalign. Unlike braces, which we bond to your teeth in a time-consuming procedure, Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that you can put in and take out at home. There are fewer dental appointments, and they’ll be short, simple check-ins when you have them.
Plus, let’s not forget teeth whitening. It’s not ideal for everyone, but professional-strength whitening can do much more for your smile than over-the-counter solutions. Combine it with Invisalign and perhaps a couple of BioClear veneers to completely transform your smile with nothing but non-invasive cosmetic dentistry.
