Dental sealants (teeth bonding): Prevention power.

Dental sealants/teeth bonding provides a strong layer of preventative protection for molars with deep grooves. The dental sealant material is a plastic resin that bonds seamlessly with the tooth, filling the grooves and creating a smooth, easy-to-clean surface. Dental sealants/tooth bonding prevents decay and saves patients the hassle and discomfort of extensive dental fillings or other tooth restorations.

The process of placing dental sealants is also much faster and more pleasant then filling a tooth; no drilling or structural work is needed. The tooth is cleaned and coated with a special gel and the dental sealant is directly applied. It takes only 1-3 minutes for the dental sealant to harden and dry, and it will last for as long as 5 to 10 years.

Dental sealants are basically invisible and won't detract from a great smile! Contact us with questions about dental sealants or any of our services.
