    Hi guys! I’ve had extensive work on my top teeth. I have veneers and a lot of bridge work. I’ve had these for almost 20 years. Within the past year, I’ve noticed that my gums have started receding. I now have a space between my tooth (that’s a bridge) and I’m extremely self confident about it. When I smile, it literally looks like I have a black pepper piece in my mouth. My dentist isn’t concerned about it. As long as it’s not causing a problem, then no reason to fix it. But it does cause a problem to my self confidence.
    Does anyone in the dental field have any advice about this? Is there anything I can do at home to hopefully get the gums to come back down?

    That's a shame, they look really nice. I'm not a dentist so I am not sure whether they can stick some filling material onto it, but I would say try not to feel self conscious because they look really good especially for 20 years +. Other people really don't notice these things as much as it seems.
