Closing Spaces in Between Teeth Using the Bioclear Technique

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.
