Protect Your Teeth
Dr. Kerri Hill and The Art of Dental Wellness staff care about providing quality dental care to support your oral health and prevent disease. Even with proper care, your molars can be susceptible to decay and cavities. We are happy to offer a great solution to this dilemma at The Art Of Dental Wellness: our Beverly Hills tooth sealants. The discreet plastic coatings fill the pits and fissures, creating a smooth surface. Then, it is easier to brush the sealed teeth making them less likely to develop decay. No cavities mean no pain, less expense, and no need for extensive restorative treatments.
An Extra Layer of Defense
In a dental sealant procedure, a clear resin substance is applied to the bite surfaces of your molars and then cured, creating a semi-permanent shield over the crevices where food particles tend to get stuck. This sealant provides a powerful line of defense against tooth decay, helping prevent cavities down the road.
Dental sealant treatment takes just a few minutes and can provide up to ten years of extra cavity protection. Dr. Hill and our caring staff will ensure you have an excellent treatment experience and receive the best care possible to maintain optimal oral health long-term.
The Problem with
Having dental sealants applied to the chewing surfaces of your molars can help fend off the bacteria that causes tooth decay. No matter how well you clean your teeth and gums, the molars can be difficult to keep clean. In this simple procedure, a clear resin is applied to the teeth and cured, adding an extra layer of protection to the enamel. It is important to have routine dental care to protect your smile.

The Art of Good Dental Care
Dr. Kerri Hill and the staff at The Art of Dental Wellness combine dental expertise with a caring bedside manner that will set you at ease. If you are interested in dental sealants, set up a consultation today to learn how we can help protect your teeth. Dental sealants are still an option if there are already signs of decay on your teeth. Dr. Hill will clean away the decay before applying sealants to prevent further damage.
The Choice is Clear
In mere minutes, Dr. Hill can place the durable protective layer. The procedure is fast and pain-free. So, there is nothing to fear. Tooth sealants are much like transparent fillings. First, your dentist will perform a dental exam. If we find small amounts of decay, it will be removed gently. Next, the treated tooth will be cleaned and dried. Then an etching solution is applied to the surface so the plastic resin will adhere better. After another rinse and drying, the liquid material is painted on the pits and fissures. Once in place, Dr. Hill hardens the sealant with a curing lamp. That is all it takes to achieve up to ten years of cavity-fighting protection.
Dental sealants are easy to apply and require no special aftercare. Because the sealant material is clear, it will not be visible. The material can stay on your teeth for up to ten years, offering a crucial layer of extra protection.
Dental sealants help fend off food particles that can lead to decay. However, they do not replace regular brushing, flossing, or dental visits. We love establishing long-term relationships with our patients and will work with you to support your lasting oral health.
Sealants can stay intact on the tooth for up to a decade.
Dental sealants are considered a preventative treatment and may be fully or partially covered by your dental insurance. Check your plan for details.
Dental sealants assist in preventing cavities by providing an extra layer of protection on top of the enamel. Like dental fillings fillings, the dental sealant bonds to the tooth for long-lasting reinforcement. Fillings, on the other hand, are used to fill in areas of damage caused by tooth decay, including areas on the inside of the tooth that have been eaten away, thus “filling” in the gap in hard tissue.
