Dental Sealants in Brandon
Dental sealants are invisible plastic resin coatings that smooth out the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, making them resistant to decay. A sealed tooth is far less likely to develop a cavity, require more expensive dental treatment later on, or, most importantly, cause pain.
Because tooth enamel does not contain any nerves, placing a sealant is painless and does not routinely require numbing shots. First, the tooth or teeth to be sealed are examined, and if any minimal decay is found, it will be gently removed. The tooth will then be cleaned and dried. Then a solution that will slightly roughen or “etch” the surface is applied, to make the sealing material adhere better. The tooth is then rinsed and dried again. The sealant is then painted on the tooth in liquid form and hardens in about a minute, sometimes with the help of a special curing light.

Cosmetic dentistry is dentistry aimed at creating a positive change to your teeth and to your smile.
Smile enhancement can have dramatic results on your overall appearance; even the smallest step can boost your confidence, self-esteem, and make you want to smile more. Our modern cosmetic dentistry services range from a basic color correction to replacing missing teeth, and everything in between.
These services include procedures to restore teeth and esthetic treatments to help patients’ teeth appear attractive and healthy. More specifically, prosthodontic procedures can be very helpful after tooth loss due to age, decay, or traumatic injury. Additionally, cosmetic treatments like tooth whitening, veneers, and bonding fall into the category of prosthodontics.
