Do Sealants Protect Against Staining, Too?

Posted on 9/6/2021 by office
Do Sealants Protect Against Staining, Too?A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating that is painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth. These sealants are mainly installed to prevent tooth decay. Upon installation, the sealant bonds quickly into the grooves and depression of your teeth and forms a protective shield over the tooth enamel. Apart from preventing tooth decay, dental sealants can protect against staining. Read on for more details.

Dental Sealants and Staining

Dental sealants are an artificial protective layer on your teeth that can also protect against staining. Dental staining mostly occurs when your teeth are exposed to colored substances like beverages. When you drink colored beverages, the colored particles might stick on your teeth and cause stains. However, with dental sealants, the risk of staining is low. This is because they prevent the colored drinks from getting in direct contact with your teeth. The sealants are designed in a manner that prevents staining; as a result, they will maintain their white color. Therefore, dental sealants will help prevent tooth decay and help protect against dental staining.

The main purpose of sealants is to protect your teeth. These devices can last for years, constantly protecting your teeth against decay and other dental problems. They mainly do so by preventing the deterioration of decay. This is because once decay starts to advance, it could permanently damage your tooth. Advanced cases of tooth decay could lead to its loss. Therefore, it is important to get in touch with us immediately you notice signs of tooth decay. If you do not have dental sealants, the risk of tooth decay is higher. Therefore, you should put in place measures to reduce the risk of this condition. You can do so by regularly brushing your teeth, flossing, and coming in for regular dental cleanings.
