We understand the importance of a radiant smile. An esthetic smile increases our confidence and enhances our life in so many wonderful ways.

That is why we are so excited to offer Black Triangle Bonding, a revolutionary service designed to enhance your dental esthetics. 

Black gaps in your teeth unfortunately attract unwanted attention to your smile. Sub-optimal dental hygiene or even natural aging can cause the gums to recede and expose the teeth close to their roots. 

These black triangles also trap food. In just a short amount of time these food traps breed bacteria, collect plaque, increase tartar buildup and stain the teeth. Oftentimes the culprit behind bad breath are these exposed gaps. 

Our skilled team of dental professionals employs advanced techniques and high-quality materials to gently fill in those gaps, providing a harmonious and esthetically pleasing result.

To place black triangle bonding, the areas of the black triangle of the teeth involved are thoroughly cleaned. A clear shell that fits the desired final shape is placed in the area. Adhesive is applied and the clear shell is filled with dental resin and hardened. The shell is removed and  the edges are shaped and polished to achieve a result that appears seamless and beautiful.

Step One

Surface Treatment

The tooth is treated with a very fine aluminum trihydroxide powder to clean the biofilm and surface of the tooth. 

Step Two

Resin Injection

Heated composite material is injected into the placed shells.

Step Three


The forms are removed and the teeth are polished into a beautiful restoration.

Black Triangle Bonding is a minimally invasive procedure that requires no alteration to the tooth through shaving or drilling. Our experienced team tailors the bonding to match the natural shade and contour of your teeth, ensuring a seamless integration with your existing smile.

What To Expect:


Treatment begins with a consultation with one of our dentists. During this consultation, the dentist will assess the extent of the black triangles and discuss your goals and expectations.

Treatment Planning

After the initial assessment, a personalized treatment plan is developed and we’ll schedule your for the procedure. Most appointments take approximately 60 minutes . 

Bonding Procedure

During treatment you’ll be able to relax and watch some TV as the procedure is non-invasive. The dentist will sculpt and shape resin material to blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. The resin is then cured with a special light to harden and bond it to the tooth surface.

Finishing Touches

Once the bonding material has set, the dentist will polish and refine the treated areas for a smooth and natural appearance.


You will be advised on aftercare practices, such as proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups, to maintain the longevity of the bonding and overall oral health.
