Bonding & Black Triangle Repair

Restore your smile and improve your dental health by correcting the black triangles between your teeth.

When gums recede, they often leave gaps between the teeth. These gaps are also known as “black triangles.” Not only are these spaces unsightly and make people look older, but they also tend to trap food, which leads to gum disease and tooth decay. In some cases, black triangles also affect speech.

Black triangles can be corrected with proper oral care. However, if they pose challenges to your health and lifestyle, you may need dental treatment to restore your smile. At Delicate Dental Arts, we perform safe and effective dental bonding to repair black triangle teeth. We use biocompatible materials to ensure optimal and lasting results.

Composite Bonding to Repair Black Triangle Teeth

Getting ahead of the condition is the key to saving your smile and avoiding invasive dental procedures. Through proper dental hygiene and regular cleaning, you can preserve the integrity of your teeth and keep your gums healthy and tight.

However, if you already have unattractive gaps between your teeth, Delicate Dental Arts offers dental bonding procedures to conceal and correct black triangle teeth. Here’s why we recommend dental bonding to restore your smile:

1. Minimally Invasive Procedure

Our bonding procedure is minimally invasive and uses biocompatible materials, such as composite resin, to fill the spaces between the teeth and improve their appearance.

2. Fast Results

The entire procedure can often be completed in a single appointment. Imagine visiting our facility with a dental imperfection and leaving with a brighter and healthier smile.

3. Cost-Effective Solution

Dental bonding is a more budget-friendly solution than other options, such as porcelain veneers and dental crowns. It also requires far less preparation of the tooth structure.

Your Dental Bonding Appointment

During your dental bonding procedure with our dentist, Dr. Nguyen, you should expect the following processes:

1. Tooth Preparation

A little preparation is required for dental bonding. The teeth that enclose the black triangles will be roughened slightly to ensure that the composite resin material will adhere to and cover their surface.

2. Composite Resin Preparation

Composite resin is applied to the roughened teeth in layers and allowed to cure. Dr. Nguyen will carefully shape the resin to complement your teeth. As the resin comes in different colors, you can choose the best shade that blends well with your smile.

3. Trimming and Polishing

We’ll use blue wavelength light to speed up the bonding process. Our dentist will remove any excess resin materials after bonding and polish the bonded composite teeth to achieve the perfect sheen.

Causes of Black Triangles

Gum recession is one of the most common causes of black triangles. When plaque and tartar build up near the gum line, the gum tissue becomes irritated, pulls back from the teeth, and creates triangle-shaped gaps. Bacteria invade these pockets, causing infection and further recession.

Some of the common reasons why gum recedes include:

  • Aggressive Brushing or Using a Toothbrush with Overly Firm Bristles
  • Grinding and Clenching
  • Misaligned Teeth
  • Periodontal Disease
  • Gum Tissue Injuries
  • Genetics

It is also important to note that, for some people, spaces between the gums and teeth are natural and beneficial as they allow for better cleaning. They form depending on the shape and position of the teeth.

However, when not managed properly, these gaps can widen over time and lead to more serious oral health problems. In some cases, black triangles can also expose root structure and increase the risk for both painful sensitivity and decay.
