What Are Black Triangles?
30 % of adults have black triangles, clinically known as open gingival embrasures. This is often due to bone loss and recession of the gum line, and sometimes due to tooth movement. These dark spaces between the teeth can make them look older and aesthetically unappealing. Food debris that causes plaque can also accumulate in these areas more than usual. In cases where the enamel is healthy, it is not necessary to place veneers to make these teeth look youthful again. Using a special bonding technique and specialized, tooth-shaped forms, we can close these gaps, improving the integrity of the gum and the appearance of your smile.
Bioclear Treatment May Be Your Answer!
Bioclear is a minimally invasive and cost effective treatment where the clear forms are filled with a composite (filling) material matched to the shade of your teeth. The forms are removed, leaving behind the smooth contoured composite material that has a beautiful shine. The form sits just below the gum line, meaning the teeth will appear to emerge naturally from the gums. The tight contacts between the teeth achieved with this system mean that the papilla (the gum tissue between the teeth) is pressed back into place, creating a healthy, beautiful smile.
Multiple Applications For The Bioclear Method
The Bioclear method is effective for black triangles at the gum line in the front teeth, as well as closing diastemas (spacing between front teeth), and small or mishapen teeth, also called peg lateral front teeth. Old, worn out, unaesthetic amalgam fillings in posterior (back) teeth can also be replaced with beautiful new cosmetic fillings using the Bioclear method. Just like in the front teeth, special forms are used to create smooth, natural fillings that stay cleaner due to the natural ability to repel plaque and bacteria. One other application of the Bioclear method is to finish orthodontics (braces) cases. A great orthodontic finish can be made to look even better.
