Protect Your Smile

Especially prone to tooth decay? Ask us about sealing your teeth to prevent cavities.

A dental sealant is a clear material that’s painted onto your tooth’s surface. This treatment helps prevent germs and bacteria from damaging your enamel — especially the hard-to-clean pits and grooves of back teeth.

We often recommend adding this treatment to your routine dental cleaning and exam.

Benefits of dental sealants

Although not a replacement for at-home brushing and flossing, dental sealants are a great extra layer of protection. This treatment offers many benefits.

How Sealants Work

  • This treatment is best when applied immediately following a dental cleaning.
  • Your hygienist will paint a thin layer of resin on the surface of your teeth.
  • Avoid drinking or eating for at least an hour.

“Absolutely fantastic! My hygienist takes such good care of me and Dr. Shapiro inspects my teeth thoroughly! I am lucky to have the best dentist in town!”

— Jean M.

Common questions about dental sealants

How long do sealants last?

Dental sealants protect against cavities on the biting surface of your teeth. Sealants are shown to be effective for many years. However, we’ll evaluate how well your sealant is holding up at your routine exams and cleanings.

Are dental sealants only for kids?

No! Sealants are a great treatment for children, but they’re also effective for adults.

Do dental sealants work on crowns?

No. Dental sealants cannot be placed on teeth with fillings or crowns.

Why do I still need to have my teeth cleaned twice a year?

Dental sealants do protect against cavities, but professional dental cleanings twice a year (or as directed by your dentist) are still needed. These appointments keep bacteria-filled tartar from building up and hurting your gums or causing decay.
