It requires extreme skill and in-depth knowledge over different kinds of materials for the aesthetic dentist to meet the requirements of the cosmetic needs of the patients.

- What are sealants?
A DENTAL SEALANT is a thin film painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth to prevent caries. studies have proven that properly applied sealants are 100% effective in protecting the tooth surfaces from cavities.
- why get sealants?
Although thorough brushing and flossing can remove food particles and plaque from smooth surfaces of teeth they can not always get into all the grooves and pits of back teeth to remove food and plaque. Sealants protect these vulnerable areas from tooth decay by sealing on plaque and food.
- Who should get sealants?
Children and teenagers are obvious candidates for sealants because of the likely hood of developing decay in depression and grooves of the premolars and molars. However, adults without decay or fillings in their molars can also benefit from sealants. Typically, children should get sealants on their permanent molars and premolars as soon as these teeth come in.
- How are sealants applied?
Applying the sealant is a simple and painless process as it will not require drilling or grinding of any tooth surface.
- How long do sealants last?
Sealants can protect the teeth from decay for up to 10 years. However, they need to be checked for chipping or wearing at a regular dental checkups.
