How can a “black triangle” be corrected?
Do you have a black triangle at the base of two teeth? Do you find that it detracts from your otherwise beautiful smile? If you are looking for black triangle correction and live in Flower Mound, Texas, we invite you to visit with Dr. Yasi Sabour and her team at The Dental Studio!
What causes the black triangle between teeth?
There are a couple of potential causes of the black triangle between teeth.
- Poor oral hygiene habits. One possible cause can be due to improper hygiene, such as not brushing or flossing effectively. Plaque and tartar buildup can cause discoloration of the gums around the teeth, creating a dark triangle.
- Gum recession. Another potential cause is gum recession, which occurs when the gum tissue pulls from the base of the tooth near the root. This can create pockets for bacteria to form, leading to decay and discoloration of the area around the teeth. As we age, our gums will recede due to natural wear and tear on the teeth from years of chewing and grinding.
- Misalignment. Misaligned teeth often lead to the development of black triangles between teeth. When the teeth are not correctly aligned, a triangular gap can form between them, trapping food particles and plaque that cause discoloration.
How to fix black triangle teeth
If you have a black triangle, it is best to consult with your dentist at The Dental Studio about what has caused it and how to address it. In many situations, Dr. Sabour recommends using Bioclear. This specialized treatment places a film around the teeth to permit special composite material to disguise the black triangle–allowing patients to see your beautiful smile without noticing this common imperfection!
How much will it cost to fix the black triangle with Bioclear?
During your initial consultation appointment, Dr. Sabour will evaluate your smile and determine the cause of black triangle development. Then, she will recommend whether patients should consider the benefits of Bioclear. Bioclear is an effective way of addressing the issue, and depending on one’s dental health insurance, there may be fewer out-of-pocket expenses to achieve results.
