Closing the Dreaded Black Triangles
When you look at yourself in the mirror while smiling, have you noticed dark spaces between your teeth at the gum line? Those “black triangles,” as they’re known in dentistry, are caused by losing gum tissue between your teeth, typically due to aging, years of aggressive brushing, aggressive flossing, wearing braces, or chronic gum disease.
While quite common in adults, black triangles are neither attractive nor healthy. Food debris and plaque can accumulate in the spaces, and the darkness of the space causes your teeth overall to look darker and longer (things typically associated with aging).
