Teeth Gap, Black Hole/Triangle Closures

One of the top cosmetic complaints we hear from our valued patients is the presence of black gaps or ‘black triangles’ between their teeth. This happens because the gum tissue has receded between the teeth, leaving what used to be gum-filled space now an unsightly empty space. Besides being a cosmetic concern, these gaps can also cause food trapping between the teeth leading to further gum problems or dental decay.

You may be more prone to this condition if you have triangular shaped teeth (vs square shaped teeth) and if you have underlying gum disease.

There are options to improve or even completely eliminate black triangles. Often it will involve full coverage ceramic crowns, veneers, or orthodontics all of which have associated high costs. It’s not an easy task, but at Metro Dental we have a special restorative system to close the gaps with composite fillings at a fraction of the cost of veneers, crowns, or orthodontics. If the black triangle appearance bothers you, contact us for an examination to see if our gap closure treatment is suitable for you.
