Dr. Alan J. White proudly offers dental sealants to help you protect your teeth from harmful substances, like bacteria, decay, and infection.
A dental sealant in Staunton, Virginia, is a thin, plastic coating that is painted onto the surface of your tooth to shield it and protect it. This is a very beneficial product that can help children who have poor oral hygiene habits, teens who are prone to tooth decay, and adults who have never had a cavity or filling in their molars.
The process of placing the dental sealant is quick and easy. It will first begin with your dentist thoroughly cleaning the tooth that is receiving the sealant. When the tooth is clean and dry, he will apply an acid solution onto the tooth to help the sealant bond to its structure. Your dentist will again rinse and dry the tooth once the solution has done its job. Then, he will paint the solution onto your tooth and will harden it with a special light. This entire process will only take a few minutes at our office and will end in the protection of your teeth.
