Seal Out Trouble Fort Mill, SC
6 person family with children, their parents and grandparents

Think of all the choices you have made this New Year to improve your life. If you are like many, these are at the top of your list:

  • Get healthy
  • Lose weight
  • Reduce stress
  • Exercise more
  • Work less after work hours

Yet, have you considered adding any type of oral health benefit to your New Year’s goals? Perhaps we at Gold Hill Dentistry can suggest one that can truly benefit and protect your smile.

Dental sealants are a simple and painless family dentistry treatment that “seal out” harmful substances from threatening the integrity and health of your teeth. Often associated with adolescent dentistry, dental sealants offer the same benefits to patients of all ages. In fact, dental sealants are one of the most under-utilized measures of achieving a healthy smile.

Dental sealants are plastic coatings that are painted on the back teeth: the pre-molars and molars. Dental sealants are incredibly beneficial to these teeth because of their rough surfaces. These back teeth are responsible for chewing and breaking down foods so that they are easily swallowed and digested. Yet, their rough surfaces are quite difficult to keep clean. The pre-molars and molars have deep grooves and pits in them, which are ideal places for food particles, sugars, and bacteria to become trapped. When any substances are trapped within the mouth, acids will begin to work to break down these substances. Acids eat their way through anything—including your tooth enamel.

Dental sealants “seal out” trouble before it has the opportunity to reach the deep grooves and pits in the teeth. They are painted on clean teeth and hardened with a special curing light to bond the with the tooth enamel. Once placed, they provide a barrier that will last 2-4 years and protect the back teeth from decay. This simple and painless procedure truly offers benefits that cannot be found in any other treatment.

4.4 / 5.0

Based on 97 reviews


"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."
