If we pinpoint tooth demineralization early on, it’s possible to reverse it. But once a cavity is starting to form, we’ll want to fill it as soon as possible before it starts to spread deeper into your tooth. Dr. Burns prefers to use minimally-invasive composite, which bonds to and closely matches your tooth enamel.
Dental sealants in Auburn, ME are clear or white coatings made of thin plastic that are bonded to the surfaces of your teeth. The goal of dental sealants is to prevent teeth from getting food and other debris trapped in them and prevent cavities.
