This patient presented with spacing between her two front teeth that that she found displeasing. The space really bothered her and she asked if we could close the space using bonding.
Trying to close such a small space with bonding is a difficult task because it is hard to control the bonding material such that we do not get excess material in between the teeth and below the gums. Excess material can cause irritation and inflammation of the gums.
The Bioclear technique allows us to close small spaces in a predictable way so that we can have good anatomical contours that are smooth and do not irritate the gums.
Our next blog will feature a video that shows the Bioclear technique.
