Bioclear Veneers vs Porcelain Veneers

How does Bioclear differ from porcelain crowns and porcelain veneers? Well, porcelain dental crowns and veneers have been the default solution offered by cosmetic dentists to correct minor imperfections in teeth ranging from breaks, chips and gaps to decay, slight overlaps and discoloration. The veneers are just thin porcelain shells placed in the front of the aforementioned damage to leave smiles symmetrical and teeth bright and free of those stains, breaks, chips or gaps. They can wind up looking great, but securely bonding them to teeth always involves making space for them by removing a layer of healthy tooth enamel. In other words the dentist has to grind away some of an already damaged tooth to repair it with porcelain crowns or veneers.

So the process is not only permanent, it’s both comparatively time consuming and expensive. Fitting porcelain veneers typically requires at least two office visits over two weeks and costs between $1000 and $2000 per veneer. By way of contrast, no tooth enamel needs to be removed to place Bioclear veneers around damaged teeth. The injection-molding process used to fit them is completely reversible. It can be completed in a single office visit and it typically cost 25% to 50% less than traditional porcelain veneers. Moreover, while both varieties of veneer can be expected to have about the same ten year lifespan, Bioclear veneers are easier and therefore cheaper to replace or repair—in the event of damage—simply because they are easier for a dentist to remove. That means, with Bioclear patients can get all the benefits of porcelain crowns or porcelain veneers, without suffering the downsides.
