What is BioClear?
BioClear is a minimally invasive restorative solution for finally saying goodbye to diastemas (otherwise known as those pesky gaps and black triangles of empty space between teeth) and achieving a smile you can feel much more confident about. The process involves applying very strong and natural-looking composite resin to the affected surfaces – better yet, it only requires one appointment of your own time!
I want a straighter smile, but I don’t want to wear metal braces. Is there another option?
Absolutely. Dr. Lamond offers ClearCorrect™ Clear Aligners, which uses a series of subtle oral trays to gradually reposition teeth instead of the traditional “bracket-and-wire” model. In addition to being much less noticeable, these aligners are also 100% removable (no changes to your diet required) and very comfortable. Plus, achieving straighter teeth can result in better oral hygiene practices and a healthier, stronger bite as well!
Is Silver-Diamine Fluoride safe?
Silver-Diamine Fluoride (also known as SDF) has been used for decades around the globe and carefully studied as well, with no adverse reactions found. In fact, the only real concern is aesthetic in nature; the treatment does turn decayed areas black and can cause some mild temporary staining to gum tissue and skin. However, Silver-Diamine Fluoride is typically reserved for younger smiles who cannot receive proper restorative care just yet, and parents consider these minor issues worth it to protect their son or daughter’s baby teeth.
