Dental Sealants

Dental Sealants in Bowling Green, KY

Dental Sealants are a thin protective coating that is applied to the surface of your teeth by a dental professional. When properly applied, sealants are an excellent way to help prevent cavities. While anyone can benefit from sealants, they are most effective when applied as early as possible. One study from the CDC reported that “school-age children without sealants have almost three times more cavities than children with sealants.” Sealants are applied without the need for any numbing or drilling and are generally painless. They don’t have to be removed, and with proper care can last up to 10 years. Along with standard brushing, flossing, and oral care, sealants can be a highly effective way to help protect your teeth. The dental professionals at Westen Dental Group are ready to answer any questions you might have and help you decide if dental sealants are the right option for you or your children.

Dental Bridges

A safe, low-risk way to replace one or more missing teeth. Natural teeth or dental implants can be used as anchors to support the suspended replacement teeth.

This “full coverage” restoration can strengthen your tooth and in the hands of an expert can provide a long-lasting esthetic and functional result.
