What Are Dental Sealants?

Grooves in the top of the molars usually harbor more food particles and plaque, meaning they are more vulnerable to ending up with decay. Dental sealants, an effective part of preventive dentistry, are used to defend teeth from dental disease resulting from decay. These fine preventive coatings are composed of a transparent or milky-colored material that is painted onto the tops of the permanent molars. As soon as they're bonded, sealants work to protect these teeth and create a more even exterior that is easier to maintain. Dental sealants provided at Contemporary Dentistry don't just help protect from tooth decay; they might also reduce your family's needs for tooth-colored fillings or other restorative care down the road. Talk to your dental professional at your twice-yearly dental appointments at our Fairfax, VA or Manassas, VA facility to determine if you or your child may benefit from dental sealants.

What Is the Sealant Process?

As a first step, our dentist will have to look at the teeth to decide if dental sealants are the ideal service for you or your children. To prepare the teeth for dental sealants, one of our dental professionals will clean the enamel to get rid of any tartar, food debris, and germs from the crevices. After the enamel dries, a thin layer of sealant liquid will be painted precisely into the rifts via a tiny brush. An innovative curing light is then placed over the tooth; this will ossify the sealant coating within approximately 10 – 20 seconds. When each sealant is applied, our staff will evaluate your jaws for alignment and give you tips about how to efficiently take care of your dental sealants.

UPDATE: January 2024. My 6th year with Dr. Morales. Had another cleaning. As usual, great experience. I don't have insurance, so I am happy they still honor Aetna's discount membership for real savings. Started to learn Spanish and I can practice it in real life...and for free! Hasta la proxima vez ! UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer. This is my second review for this excellent office. After neglecting my teeth for quite some time a broken toothed forced me to visit a dentist. After a research on the web and subsequent phone calls I settled for the Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas. One of the reason was that not having insurance the office accepts Aetna Savings Plans, basically a discount for the services. The discounts are real as I found out calling some other offices. My first visit was in January 2018. I have had numerous procedures done since then (altogether 30 - thirty - visits) ranging from deep cleaning, numerous cavities and including one implant and two crowns. All work was done in the office, the quality of work has been 100%+, I have never experienced nay 'post-procedure' pains or complications. The staff is very friendly and I am very happy I picked Contemporary dentistry for my dental needs. UPDATE: January 2023. Just had the cleaning done, after five years still a satisfied customer.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Morales and his practice for 18 years. The time period, alone, should be an indication of my family’s satisfaction.  Dr. Morales is wonderful...he invariably demonstrates serving his patients’ best interests and well-being in recommending and carrying out treatment. We have never had lingering issues in any treatment given.  We have successfully recommended him and his practice and will continue to do so. We never have a problem with scheduling appointments and the office staff is always welcoming and pleasant. The office, itself, is modern and comfortable.  If I could give 10 Stars, I would! P.S. Love our hygienist, Amy.

I’ve had a very positive experience with Contemporary Dentistry of Fairfax starting with my initial phone call to make my appointment, to the welcoming and professional office staff, and the talent and skill of the dentists. I currently see Dr Noumy but I trust that I would get the same care from the other dentists as well.

I travel from Florida for Dentist Diego Morales.  He is super careful and I don’t have any pain.  Excellent work in my mouth.  Dentist Diego Morales treats you like part of his family.  No waiting times when you have an appointment.  The receptionist and the staff very attentive.  I recommended 100%.

I have been a patient of Contemporary Dentistry (Dr. Morales) for many years and my experience with his practice has been very positive (especially considering I do not enjoy dental work). He has always made me aware of options for treatment. Over the years, he has always reassured me during instances where I may need a filling, root canal, crown and most recently a dental implant. The staff at Contemporary Dentistry, including hygienist Amy and office personnel are very professional and considerate. Dr. Abril did the implant procedure and his expertise and followup care was especially appreciated. My experience with this practice is such that I have not explored other options for my dental care and consistently see them for my regular checkups. If there are any concerns between regular visits, all I have to do is phone the office and an appointment is available very quickly. I am very happy with the service I have receive from Contemporary Dentistry of Manassas and recommend them without reservation.
