Can Dental Bonding Fix Black Triangles?

I have what my dentist is calling black triangles. Would dental bonding fix them?

Sam W. – Kansas


Black Triangles are often caused by receding gums.  The first thing you’ll want to do is make sure there is not gum disease. If that’s dealt with and you just have the cosmetics issue, then dental bonding is a possibility, but please bear in mind it is a tricky procedure. You’ll need an expert cosmetic dentist.

Black triangles are a hole left by the abandoned gum structure. It’s essentially a food trap, leaving plaque and calculus a nice little home. The dental bonding has to be shaped in such a way that it doesn’t perpetuate the problem. You’ll want to be able to floss the area smoothly, without any resistance. Then you’ve got the technical issues with gum fluid and the aesthetic issues that require artistry.

If I were in your place, I’d look for a dentist who’s reached accreditation status with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD). They’ll have the skill and artistry to do it properly.
