Approximately 25 percent of people in the U.S. don’t like to smile because of their teeth. The truth of the matter is, most people aren’t lucky enough to be born with a perfect smile and perfect teeth.
If you are one of these lucky few, there’s a good chance that as time passes, your teeth will experience some level of wear and tear or discoloration.
The good news is, you don’t have to just grin and bear it (pun intended). Thanks to innovative dental technology, achieving a beautiful, bright white smile is easier than ever before.
A new and relatively unknown option for achieving the perfect smile you want and deserve is to invest in Bioclear veneers using the Bioclear Method. This is a high-tech treatment that is minimally invasive, affordable, and that offers natural looking results.

The Basics: What Exactly Are Veneers?
A veneer is a thin shell that’s adhered to the visible portion (front) of your tooth. They work to provide you with a brighter, straighter smile, effectively hiding gaps, chips, and stains.
Dr. Eshom is going to focus on his patient’s veneer treatment with being minimally invasive. After all, each tooth is unique and therefore, no two veneers should be the same. Tooth structure is precious.
When properly made and applied, no one will even be able to tell that you have Bioclear veneers.
Porcelain Veneers vs. Bioclear Veneers
When you begin to consider veneers, you are going to be given two options – traditional porcelain veneers and Bioclear veneers. Learn more about each option here.
One of the main differences in porcelain veneers and Bioclear veneers is that porcelain veneers are not able to be reversible. They are a permanent treatment option. However, with Bioclear, you have a treatment that’s minimally invasive and can be reversed.
If you opt for porcelain veneers, a layer of your enamel has to be removed to properly adhere them. This means that after your veneers are put in place, there is no option for you to have them removed without replacing your entire tooth.
This type of veneer is often referred to as a “no prep” or minimally invasive treatment. What this means is that none of your tooth enamel has to be removed. Your tooth is never destroyed and can be done in one visit to your dentist.
The Bioclear veneers also have superior stain resistance, are extremely durable, and last for approximately 7-10 years – or longer, depending on how well your teeth are cared for. Also, because this type of veneer no tooth structure is removed, they can be repaired, if they are damaged or chipped in the future.
Another reason to choose this option is that the Bioclear veneers are usually more affordable compared to porcelain veneers.
The Benefits Offered by Bioclear Veneers
Some of the most appealing benefits offered by Bioclear veneers, over traditional porcelain veneers, include the following:
- More affordable
- Extremely durable with a lifespan of 7-10 years or more
- The application requires a single visit
- Ideal for filling in black triangles that have formed near the gum line
- Minimally invasive while preserving the natural material of your tooth
- Gentle on the gums
Now that you know the benefits offered by Bioclear veneers, let’s dive deeper into the process used for the application.
How do Bioclear Veneers Work?
One of the first things you need to know about Bioclear veneers is the fact that they aren’t so much a product as they are an actual process.
When you opt for this process, a clear plastic matrix is used to encase either side of your tooth . This is what provides the desired shape. At this point, two types of dental composites are filled in around and in between your teeth(called warm injection molding). This is what creates the strength and a perfect smile.
It is a fairly simple procedure, and since a conservative approach is used (no grinding of your tooth’s structure) it’s very comfortable.
Are Bioclear Veneers the Right Option for You?
Just like any other dental procedure, Bioclear veneers aren’t right for everyone.
If you want very, very white teeth and your natural teeth are dark of if you have serious dental health issues, such as gum disease, bone loss, or advanced tooth decay, Dr. Eshom may recommend some other restorative option. In some cases, this could be porcelain veneers or a crown.
However, if your overall oral health is good, then Bioclear veneers may be the ideal option. This treatment can be used for individuals suffering from:
- Slight wear on the teeth (i.e. cracks, chips, etc.)
- Black triangles in between the teeth or near the gums
- Discolored or stained teeth
- Teeth that are undersized compared to the others in your mouth
- Teeth with uneven edges
- Teeth with gaps
The only way to be sure of whether or not you are a candidate for this treatment is by going to one of our free consultations with Dr. Eshom.
