Dental Sealants Fort Mill, SC

You brush your teeth to keep them clean, you floss your teeth to keep them healthy, but what are you doing to protect them? Dental sealants are plastic coatings placed on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth that seal out decay. Having dental sealants applied is the easiest method for protecting the teeth from cavities and decay. At Gold Hill Dentistry, we are proud to be a dental practice that serves patients of all ages achieve ultimate dental health.

The back teeth are the most susceptible to cavities and decay. These back molars have deep grooves, known as fissures, which make them vulnerable to decay. These deep spaces easily trap small food particles and sugars, leaving them behind to damage the teeth. Plaque builds up in these fissures, and the acid from the plaque begins to eat away at the tooth enamel allowing holes in the teeth for decay to develop and expand. Dental sealants provide extra protection for these back teeth because they create a smooth surface that covers the surface area of the teeth to seal out vulnerability to cavities forming.

Dental sealants are a very quick and easy dental procedure. They are placed on the teeth after a thorough cleaning to ensure that no particles or bacteria are under the sealants before they are applied. The teeth will be dried and then an acidic solution is placed on the fissured area of the teeth’s surfaces to roughen up the surface so that the sealant will bond completely. The liquid dental sealant is applied to the teeth and it is hardened by a special light so that it becomes a hard plastic varnish coating. This sealant allows you to chew normally with the back teeth while blocking out decay.

Patients of all ages are great candidates for dental sealants. If you are interested in having dental sealants applied to your teeth or to your children’s teeth, please call Gold Hill Dentistry today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to serving your family and helping you all achieve a healthy, beautiful smile.

"When I moved I tried another dental practice. Mistake. Now I drive an hour to still use Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone from the administrative staff to the dentist are professional, kind, and good at what they do."


"This was my first appointment with Gold Hill Dentistry so I didn’t exactly know what to expect. However prior to my visit I did google their reviews which were exceptional. That being said, my first visit certainly align with their online reviews! Gold Hill Dentistry’s staff were warm, professional but personable, and they made me feel very comfortable from the moment I entered their office and throughout the entire time services were performed. My cleaning results were great and my teeth and gums felt wonderful! I look forward to a long relationship with Gold Hill Dentistry!"


"As soon as you walk in you are greeted like family. Very clean, homie feeling office. Staff and Dr. Setty super friendly, kind and professional."


"Gold Hill Dentistry is the absolute best! From the front desk, to the hygienists, to the doctor, they were all great. They bent over backwards to accommodate my special health situation and urgent scheduling needs. And the drilling/filling they did was the quickest and most painless I've ever had. Don't think twice about making them your new go-to for dental work."


"Office Staff, dental hygienists, and the dentists are all wonderful. Always friendly, helpful, professional and excellent. With so many "doc in the box" dental centers popping up, Gold Hill is a welcome exception where personal service and attention matter. (I should mention too, that the service does not come at premium cost - they take insurance and their rates are competitive and reasonable). Highly recommend Gold Hill Dentistry."


"I really like Gold Hill Dentistry. Everyone is very very friendly and helpful. They are really concerned about your care."
