Farmington Tooth Bonding
Drs. Donna and Jennifer Thompson, and the Thompson Dental Group team can take care of your tooth bonding in Farmington NM. The dental bonding process is very similar to the process of filling in tooth decay. Whereas the term “filling” is generally reserved for tooth decay, bonding refers to reshaping the tooth in a more aesthetic or cosmetic sense. Typically the tooth is prepped and smoothed before applying a resin material to reshape or reform the tooth. Once applied and dried, the tooth is then reworked to appear just like a natural tooth. Cosmetic bonding can be used to fill gaps, change the shape, color or other aesthetics of a tooth. Using this method of tooth restoration is usually more economical than other forms of cosmetic dentistry such as porcelain veneers.
