NOTCHES OR SLOTS AT THE GUM LINE

Gum Line Problems

Notches or slots in your teeth at the gum line usually mean that your bite is off and the notched teeth are not aligned with the rest of your teeth. (A hard toothbrush or your brushing pattern is usually not the cause of notching.) Teeth that are under unusual pressure tend to flex. This flexing causes tooth structure to be shed at the gum line.

Gum Line TREATMENT

In most cases, the tooth will need a bonded resin filling. If the notching is severe, the tooth may need to be crowned.
