Don't worry, this is completely normal. We call this an Interdental Space and it is a genetic feature.
The Interdental Space or "black triangle" may become more visible after finishing your aligner treatment, but it will have always existed before treatment. Your Clear Aligners cannot create a black triangle.
So what can you do?
We recommend that you massage your gum in a circular motion 3 times per day to encourage your gum to grow into that gap and make it whole.
