If you are looking for a highly effective tooth restoration procedure designed for preventing future damage in the form of tooth decay and cavities, dental sealants may be your best option.

Dental sealants consist of a thin coating atop of your chewing surfaces to help prevent damage that arises such as cavities. Dental sealants are extremely durable and can effectively keep your tooth enamel and smile safe for up to 10 years.

Dental sealants are extremely popular and useful for individuals looking to keep their teeth safe from the dangers of food and drinks. Whereas harmful acids can eat through tooth enamel, they are ineffective at chewing through dental sealants. In addition, dental sealants go on clear, allowing your natural smile to shine through.

Dental sealants can reduce the risk of tooth decay by as much as 80%, and have been shown to make children 3 times less likely to develop cavities when placed on their teeth. Dental sealants are safe and effective and can easily be placed on a child as young 6 years old or whichever age their first molars begin to grow in.
