Protect Your Teeth from the Elements

with Dental Sealants

No matter how much you floss or how thoroughly you brush your teeth, it’s simply impossible to clean every little space in your mouth.

Sometimes, when you miss a few spots on your back teeth, you may start to experience early signs of tooth decay.

It’s at this point that dental sealants become your best friend, and help protect you against further damage which could result in cavities.

What are sealants? How are they applied?

You can think of a sealant as a shield that protects your teeth in the daily battle against tooth decay and gum disease. In fact, according to the ADA, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by nearly 80%. You can read more about the American Dental Association’s stance on dental sealants below:


Applying sealants is a quick and painless process. We will simply add a gel substance to your teeth, which bonds to the tooth quickly to create, you guessed it, a seal!

When are they used?

While age doesn’t matter regarding sealants, they are quite common in children and teenagers because of their ability to fight tooth decay and even prevent cavities in some cases.

In fact the CDC found that children without sealants have almost three times more cavities than children with sealants. So, if you have a child between the ages of 6-12, it is vital to bring them to Shining Smiles so we can set them up for a future full of healthy, happy smiles!

In addition, sealants are relatively inexpensive and are covered by many insurance providers.
