Restorative Dentistry with the Bioclear® Matrix System

Sarasota's Certified® Bioclear Dentist

If your teeth are chipped, broken, stained, shortened from grinding, or have spaces or black triangles, Bioclear may be your ideal cosmetic dental solution. Bioclear from Sarasota Dentistry is an alternative to bonding and veneers that can help you achieve a more beautiful, youthful, and natural-looking smile. This revolutionary, conservative, and modern cosmetic dental technique can fix and improve a wide range of problems that may be causing you to be self-conscious about showing off your smile, or to feel less confident.

Bioclear was developed by Dr. David Clark—a dentist and inventor who envisioned a more modern approach to restorative dentistry and wanted to offer patients affordable and minimally invasive options with superior results. Bioclear has joined forces with 3M Oral Care to provide dentists with a number of unique customizable designs to result in teeth that are fuller, stronger, and more beautiful, without damaging healthy tooth structure.

With his extensive Bioclear training and experience, Dr. Hank Michael and the rest the Sarasota Dentistry team are ready to help you achieve your cosmetic goals for your smile and the functionality of your teeth.

With the Bioclear matrix system, dentists wrap thin mylar sheets that slip under the gum line around one or more teeth. Then, a liquid composite is injected into these sheets to fill the mold and create a new tooth surface. After the resin cools and hardens, the dentist will shape the teeth to result in shiny, smooth, durable, and natural-looking teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a Candidate for Bioclear?
People who need veneers or bonding may be good candidates for Bioclear. Bioclear is an ideal treatment for those who have black triangles or gaps between teeth, worn or uneven teeth, chipped or broken teeth, and/or uneven tooth coloring.
How Long Does Bioclear Take to Install?
Bioclear can be installed during a single visit to our clinic in Sarasota. The exact length of time for installation will be determined based on the number of teeth being treated.
How Long Does Bioclear Last?
Bioclear can last for up to 10 years or longer based on how well you care for your teeth. Brushing and flossing regularly and eating healthy foods may help extend the results of Bioclear and maintain the beautiful, healthy, and natural appearance of your teeth.
What Is Bioclear Tooth Bonding?
Bioclear tooth bonding allows the entire tooth to be over-molded with composite to result in smoother, stronger teeth. With traditional dental bonding, since a tooth-colored filling is usually only added to cavities and other problem spots on teeth, this can result in rough patches on the surface of teeth that become more easily damaged. Bioclear tooth bonding is durable, stain-resistant, and does not require degrading the tooth surface. This revolutionary tooth bonding treatment also reduces the risk for tooth decay and gum disease by filling in the spaces between teeth where food can become trapped.
How Much Does Bioclear Cost?
Bioclear is far less costly than veneers, and it offers longer-lasting results. The cost of Bioclear is estimated to be between 25% and 50% less than veneers.
