A dental sealant is a thin, tooth-coloured acrylic coating that is applied to the chewing surface of the tooth to help prevent tooth decay and cavities, reducing the need to get fillings. Acting as a barrier, the sealant bonds into the deep grooves of your tooth and “seals it,” protecting the enamel from plaque, food particles, and other bacteria that brushing and flossing can’t reach. You might be wondering ‘how much do dental sealants cost in Alberta?’ The cost of dental sealants is relatively low, typically somewhere between $40-60 per tooth when paying out of pocket but most insurance companies cover the cost of dental sealants.Contact Us

Once the sealant has hardened you are good to get on with your day as there is no freezing involved with the procedure.
