Sealants are plastic resins that bond to and harden on your tooth's surface helping to protect it.
Placed at the same time we place your brackets, sealants effectively “seal” the teeth and protect them from developing white marks or scaring on teeth that can be caused by braces. We are one of the only offices in the Delaware Valley to routinely apply sealants at no additional fee to all patients.
