Sealants and Lumineers

Many dental patients are unfamiliar with sealants or Lumineers. The names suggest these are used for cosmetic purposes, but they work to protect your teeth, too.

Dr. Robert J. Mysse, DDS Family Dentistry recommends these dental fixtures to people with weak teeth, especially those with weak enamel. Sealants and Lumineers are also good for children, adults who grind their teeth, or patients whose teeth need extra protection after dental surgery or other procedures.

Dental Sealants

Dental sealants are good for patients of all ages but are recommended especially for children to help prevent future tooth decay. Sealants are usually used in molars, some of your children’s most important teeth. A dental sealant is a plastic resin that bonds to the natural grooves in teeth. Bonding creates a smooth surface and makes it more difficult for plaque and tartar to build up over time, which makes brushing and flossing more effective.

Using a sealant on adult teeth prevents tooth decay, which saves you the headache of fillings.

Sealant promotes overall oral health, protecting you from toothaches, gum disease, and other issues. If you grind or gnash your teeth, especially at night, sealant may protect them from severe damage.

Dental Lumineers

Like veneers, Lumineers are thin shells that bond to the front of your teeth, strengthening them. Lumineers are applied without scraping enamel, meaning you won’t have to undergo anesthesia during application. Lumineers are so thin, your teeth won’t even feel sensitive during the procedure. Lumineers strengthen teeth and hide imperfections like chips, stains, or gaps. They have been proven to last over 20 years, and patients report more confidence in their smiles.
