Black Triangle Treatment, Before & After
Treatment done by Dr. Johnson
What Are Black Triangles?
About 30 percent of adults have “black triangles” between the teeth and near the gum line. It becomes compromising to your oral health when these spaces open up due to bone loss, gum recession, or movement of teeth after gum surgery or orthodontics (Invisalign).
Not only do they detract from the appearance of your smile, but these spaces also accumulate food debris that leads to excessive plaque buildup.
Dr. Johnson is pleased to offer a cost-effective, minimally invasive approach to fill in black triangles between teeth.
Black Triangle Treatment
Multiple treatments may address black triangles, however, we prefer to use a non-invasive approach. Rather than altering your gum line or giving you a restoration, we simply inject a small amount of a filler in the gums near the space so it closes.
This procedure is completely painless. We simply apply a bit of topical or local anesthetic to the area, inject the filler until the triangle disappears, and you’re done. The area might be a little tender for a day or so afterward, but this should quickly go away on its own.
What Causes Black Triangle Teeth in the First Place?
Well, there are a few things that can cause black triangle teeth.
- Receding Gums. Gum disease, gum infection, or smoking and aging can cause your gums to recede which can lead to black triangle teeth.
- Aggressive dental hygiene. Yes, if you brush or floss your teeth to intensely, it can damage the tissue between your teeth leading to black triangle teeth.
- Fragile gum tissue. This is different for every individual, so contact us today for additional guidance.
- The natural shape of your teeth. This also varies per individual. Different people have different circumstances, and those can sometimes lead to black triangle teeth.
