Charlottesville residents can benefit from adult dental sealants if they are experiencing cavities or possible cracks in their teeth. Cavities and slight cracks can lead to extensive damage if not taken care of. Dental sealants are safe, effective, and offer a natural appearance. At Bearley Dental, we use dental sealants to fix minor abnormalities and strengthen the tooth’s surface to prevent further damage.
Dental sealants are made from strong polymers and ceramic powders to create a matrix that can be colored to match the tooth that needs repair. Because the matrix is color-matched to the tooth, you will not be able to tell where the sealant ends and the tooth begins. This provides a more natural appearance and helps restore confidence in your smile.
Dental sealants are incredibly strong. They can remain in place with proper dental care for seven to ten years, possibly longer. Once applied and properly cured, the dental sealant becomes incredibly strong and resilient and will withstand much of the same pressures that your natural teeth will experience over time.
Once applied to the tooth, the strength of dental sealants will protect a tooth from further damage. Because of how the sealant is applied to the tooth’s surface, it makes it difficult for bacteria and debris to find their way into the enamel. Sealants are designed to strengthen the tooth’s surface and prevent decay and deterioration. Protecting and maintaining your teeth is crucial if you want them to last throughout your lifetime.
