Dental Sealants

Protect from cavities

If your child has deep grooves in his/her back teeth or you’re concerned that your child may not be brushing and flossing as thoroughly as necessary, dental sealants are a great way to protect teeth from tooth decay. A simple procedure that takes less than 15 minutes per tooth, we dry the tooth and then paint on a special liquid that hardens under a curing light to form a hard plastic shell over the biting surface of the tooth. No anesthetic required. Piece of cake.

Our Warranty

We ask that you not chew ice that can cause chipping of the sealants, but the good news is that dental sealants are covered under our written warranty. That means that we will replace or repair any sealant that has chipped or worn away within 3 years of its placement, as long as your child has been seen for regular checkups.
