How Do I Fix a Black Triangle Between My Teeth?
Black triangles between teeth are caused by the shape of your teeth and gum recession. There are two ways of fixing your black triangle. First way is to contour the two teeth so your contact (area where teeth touch) is more broad. This obviously creates space between the two teeth. Your orthodontist would then move the teeth together again which eliminates the black triangle. The other way to do it is with bonding after the braces are removed.
