Bioclear – Alternative to Veneers
The Bioclear Method is an amazing alternative to veneers.
The Bioclear Method is a technique in which your tooth is “shrink wrapped” all the way around with tooth colored filling material and then shaped to create a beautiful new smile. Dr. Tew is one of the few certified Bioclear providers in the country and the only one in Yakima, WA trained on this method. The Bioclear method preserves more of your natural tooth, is more affordable than veneers and don’t require you to wear any temporaries. Give us a call to schedule a free consultation.

How is the Bioclear Method different than Porcelain Veneers?
Porcelain Veneers are a way to cosmetically change the front of the teeth to make them more beautiful. Here at Bradley Tew D.D.S we are big fans of Porcelain Veneers, especially on people who have teeth that are worn, chipped and full of old broken fillings. The Bioclear Method has a few advantages over Porcelain Veneers.
1. The Bioclear Method is usually more conservative.
Despite what some claim, the vast majority of the time, tooth structure needs to be taken away to place the Porcelain Veneers. The Bioclear Method is an additive technique. You’re adding to the tooth, making it stronger.
2. The Bioclear Method is repairable.
Porcelain Veneers are very strong, but they can chip, especially in people who grind their teeth (which is most people) or in an accident. When they do chip, they often can not be repaired and must be completely replaced, which can be costly. Since the Bioclear Method uses Dental Composite, not porcelain, if the teeth chip, they can be added to and repaired fairly easily and inexpensively.
3. The Bioclear Method is less expensive.
While prices vary, the Bioclear Method is usually about half the cost of a Porcelain Veneer, which makes it much more affordable to many people.
