with the Bioclear Method of Bonding

Dr. Karen Williamson frequently sees
patients who’ve completed their time in braces but knew they would need
additional esthetic treatment.
One reason for this can be “peg
laterals,” teeth that are peg-shaped, leaving openings (known as negative
black space) between teeth. “When that’s the case, we like to whiten the
teeth first,” Dr. Williamson said. “Then, we can use bonding to build up the
teeth to look like the teeth around it and close up any negative space or
gaps in the smile.”

It’s something Dr. Williamson has been doing
for 30 years. But 12 years ago, bonding technology took a giant leap forward
for her with the introduction of the Bioclear method of bonding. “One of the
biggest benefits of Bioclear is the ability to preserve more of my patients’
natural tooth enamel,” Dr. Williamson said. “Enamel is one of the hardest
substances in the body, and it’s always my goal to preserve as much of the
natural tooth as I can.”

With cosmetic procedures like veneers, Dr.
Williamson must remove enamel before placing the porcelain veneer or the
teeth can look bulky. “With Bioclear, I work with an additive technique
allowing me to take a more conservative approach preserving the most enamel
of all the methods available for aesthetically treating a tooth. We’re seeing
amazing outcomes with Bioclear bonding.” Because the material is poured like
concrete instead of incrementally layered, there’s less chance of
chipping. 

“The revolutionary Bioclear matrixes allow us
to create a mold that fits precisely in the areas of concern,” Dr. Williamson
said. “Then, we can fill the matrix with composite that’s stronger than
traditional bonding and less invasive than veneers.”

Over the past 30 years, Dr. Williamson has
provided general, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry to the families of
Rockwall and beyond with an emphasis on the latest and best technology. For
her, that’s meant well over 200 hours of continuing education each
year. 

“By offering
my patients access to advanced dental technology, I’m able to offer them
safer, more comfortable, and more precise treatment,” Dr. Williamson said.
“With these advanced technologies, results are highly accurate and recovery
time is shorter.” She offers her patients the latest 3D scanner which can
capture precise images over time and document changes to tooth structure or
gum recession.

Dr. Williamson’s is the only practice in the
area with an advanced acoustic diagnostic pharyngometer and rhinometer, which
uses acoustic-reflection to accurately map the size, structure, and
collapsibility of the oral and nasal airway, allowing her to design the right
sleep-apnea appliance from the beginning, rather than through trial and
error. She offers CEREC same-day crowns, laser dentistry, orofacial myology,
periodontics, tooth extraction, and a full menu of cosmetic dentistry
options. 

An insatiable learner who’s always looking
for the next challenge, Dr. Williamson is working toward board certification
in dental forensics (also called forensic odontology) and currently working
with medical examiners in Collin, Tarrant, and Dallas Counties helping
identify crime victims and victims of natural disaster through dental
records. Her latest challenge? Joining the bell choir at her home church,
First Baptist Rockwall. Find out more at KarenWilliamsonDDS.com.
