“My husband and I went last week for the first time and were very comfortable with the experience. We didn't have to wait to be seen, they got us in right away which is usually not the norm with my past dental experiences.”
Dental Sealants Procedure Details
At Valley Grace Dental, we apply dental sealants in just one short, comfortable visit to our practice. The entire process, from start to finish, only takes a few minutes. We thoroughly clean the teeth and let them dry, before applying a special solution over the enamel to strengthen the teeth’s bonding capability. After applying the bonding agent, we carefully pain the clear or tooth-colored sealant material over the enamel to cover the ridges, grooves, and depressions. Most sealant materials harden immediately, but, in some cases, we may use a special light to harden the material. After applying the dental sealants, we remind your children to maintain optimal oral health and you can then resume your daily activities.
