Sealants in Centennial, CO

A dental sealant is a clear or tooth-colored material that Dr. Harmon will apply to the top of the back teeth, where dental decay occurs most often. By covering the pits and grooves of these chewing surfaces, dental sealants can effectively seal out the germs and food that cause decay. In addition to forming a protective barrier, dental sealants also create a smoother surface on the chewing surface of the tooth. This smooth surface is much easier to keep clean than the natural grooves and pits of the tooth. Dental sealants in Centennial, Colorado can last for several years, and they can effectively protect your teeth from decay and cavities.

Most patients should have dental sealants placed on their permanent back molars as soon as they erupt, which is usually around the ages of 6-12 years. The process for applying dental sealants in Centennial, Colorado is fast, pain-free, and simple. Our gentle dentist will first clean and dry the tooth, then paint the sealant onto the chewing surface of the tooth.
