By placing a sealant on the surface of your teeth, our team can help your teeth become less prone to cavities and easier to clean. With these benefits, dental sealants are proven to be effective for both children and adults.

Sealants are made from a clear or tooth-colored resin material, which is used to form a smooth coating over the tooth’s surface. This top coating on the tooth protects the natural grooves and fissures from decay, food debris and bacteria. For this reason, dental sealants are most often recommended for children who have had their permanent molars come in. This usually happens between the ages of 6 and 12. Adults also benefit from dental sealants if they are especially prone to getting cavities or have teeth that have not been restored after being affected by decay in the past.

Dental sealants in Herndon, Virginia, are applied in one short and comfortable visit.
