A dental sealant is a tooth-colored resin coating that is painted onto the surface of teeth to protect deep grooves in the teeth from plaque, acids, and food particles that can cause decay. Sealants are safe and effective for children and adults who need added protection from cavities. The procedure takes only a few minutes per tooth and can last several years before it needs to be reapplied.
