How are dental sealants applied?

One of our dentists prepares the chewing surfaces of teeth, then paints on the sealant. The sealant material bonds directly to the tooth and hardens with the aid of a special curing light. Dental sealants hold up well under the force of chewing, and they provide protection against cavities for about five years. During regular dental visits, one of our dentists will check the state of sealants and re-apply them as needed.

Testimonials

I had a broken tooth and needed emergency care. I was able to get in almost immediately. Dr. Krempa gave me more than one option as to the care and length of time it would take for each of the options provided. My tooth was fixed and I was on my way in a short amount of time. I have always had fears and pain with dental work from other dentists. This was the best experience I have had. I have found my new dental provider. From the time I walked in and was greeted with smiles, to the time I left, it was a great experience with everyone there.--Suzanne B.
