Dark Triangle/Diastema


Dark Triangle/Diastema

As we get older, we sometimes start to see dark triangle-shaped spaces in between our teeth right at the gum line, this is referred to as dark triangles, gingivitis embrasures, or diastema. Our gums tend to recede over time, which in turn leads to visible dark spaces in between our teeth. There are several options available if people would like to treat this condition. We want to make sure that you have all the information so that you can make the right choice for your lifestyle. Dr. Danny Shiri will fill in the empty space with tooth-color resin or bonding.

Having these spaces in your smile can be unsightly. Now there is a way to cosmetically treat it.

If you have any questions or if you would like to request more information, give us a call at 323-935-9102 today. Remember that the best way to treat a dental issue is to prevent the issue, so keep up with brushing and flossing, and visit us at our Los Angeles dental office for your regular checkups.
