Protect teeth from decay with a thin, plastic coating applied to the surface of molars and premolars, known as sealants. A sealant protects the tooth by dealing deep grooves, creating a smooth, easy to clean surface. While sealants provide protection for several years, regular dental care visits ensure no chipping or wear occurs.
What do sealants involve?
Sealants are easily applied by the experts at Smile Boutique in just a few minutes! The teeth are thoroughly cleaned and surrounded with cotton to keep the area dry. A special solution is then applied to the enamel surface to help the sealant bond to the tooth. The tooth is rinsed and dried, sealant material is painted on the surface, and a special curing light is used to harden the material.
