Smile Extreme

Are you worried about tooth decay? Smile Xtreme provides a range of adult dental treatments including dental sealants.

Sealants are a minimally invasive dental treatment, which can help to prevent decay. Applied to the chewing surface of a tooth, Sealants stop decay causing bacteria from actually reaching teeth.

Sealants protect the most vulnerable areas of teeth - places where a toothbrush just cannot reach! Created from plastic materials, Sealants are utilised on the premolars and molars. The plastic material bonds to the grooves of teeth, acting as a barrier for plaque and tartar. Sealants help to protect the enamel of teeth whilst preventing decay.

Sealants are a simple dentistry treatment, which require only one consultation. During your treatment, the premolars and molars will be thoroughly cleaned and prepared. Once the bonding material has been applied, the Sealants are then bonded onto the natural biting surface of teeth. Your dentist or hygienist checks the Sealants at routine dental check-ups and will reapply where necessary.
