This case is based on a 26-year-old patient with spaces between the teeth. By means of orthodontics and the placement of permanently bonded resin veneers, the small “dark interdental triangles” between the teeth are eliminated.
The appearance of spaces between teeth is due to reasons as varied as gum loss due to periodontitis (periodontal gum disease known as “pyorrhea”) or tooth migration. These spaces reveal the dark background of the mouth and result in an aesthetic alteration of the smile.
The esthetic problem can be solved by orthodontic treatment to bring the teeth closer together and close the space, solving the alignment problems or with the use of porcelain or resin veneers bonded to the tooth to hide the dark interdental spaces.
