I had a vaneer placed on a peg lateral. I had no gap before the vaneer and now there is a small gap or hole near the gum line Between the lateral and front tooth. Will my gum fill this in or am I stuck with this hole that looks like food is in my teeth? It goes clear through and is black looking.

    If the hole you mentioned is between the two teeth, then it could have been a piece of cement that was pushing the gums back in this area.  If this is the case, sometimes the gum will fill in.

    Have your dentist look at your concerns and see whats going on, hopefully, it was residual cement and not broken. However,if it is broken or chipped veneer it can be fixed or replaced.
