What Causes Black Triangles?

Black triangles are a cosmetic concern that, until recently, haven’t had a good solution. They form at the base of teeth when our gums recede.

Our front teeth are shaped with a natural taper: they are wide at the biting edge, but narrow at the root. This creates spaces between the teeth. Healthy gums fill in these spaces, but the extensions of gums, called papillae, are very vulnerable to gum disease and irritation. Since about half of all US adults have gum disease, a rate that increases to 70% for adults over the age of 65, black triangles are a very common cosmetic complaint.

The Innovative BioClear Process

What makes BioClear different from traditional dental bonding? In traditional dental bonding, we use composite that has a paste-like texture. It can be easily spread and shaped, but it’s solid and holds its shape. BioClear uses bonding material that’s heated until it flows.

Traditional bonding can easily be applied to the tops of teeth to reshape the biting edge or restore a chipped tooth. But it’s hard to get composite around the base of the tooth in the area where black triangles are. Flowable composite, though, can easily reach the areas at the base of the tooth.

In the BioClear veneers technique, we usually only have to roughen your teeth to make sure the composite will bond with use a clear mylar sheet to create a mold around your natural tooth. When we have the desired shape that we want for your tooth, we inject the composite into the mold. It’s warm, so it flows down and fills all the spaces, but it’s not so hot that it will cause discomfort or harm your teeth or gums.

Once the resin is cooled and hardened, we polish it and remove any stray tails or other artifacts from injection. Then you’re done, and you can enjoy your restored smile!
