Bioclear™, powered by 3M Oral Care

A revolutionary approach to composite restorative dentistry

  • 3M Filtek Restorative ready to inject composite into Bioclear Black Triangle Matrices on maxillary typodont

    What do you get when you combine the cutting-edge procedural advances of Bioclear™ Matrix Systems with 3M’s science-based, clinically proven oral care products? Consistency. Control. Confidence. That’s the power of the Bioclear™ Method: together, intuitive methods and innovative materials make it easier for you to achieve beautifully transformative, long-lasting restorations that you and your patients will love.

    The Bioclear™ Method uses a standardized five-step process, clear anatomic matrices and trusted materials like 3M™ Filtek™ Dental Restoratives to deliver consistently spectacular results. This suite of procedures makes it easier than ever to consistently treat “black triangle” cases, close diastemas and create natural, anatomically sound contacts in Class II restorations.
