Run your tongue across the chewing surface of your molars. Can you feel all the bumps and grooves called “pits and fissures”? Well, these areas just so happen to be perfect for trapping food and plaque, which can cause tooth decay. Although brushing twice a day and flossing regularly helps protect your teeth from cavities, oftentimes toothbrush bristles can’t quite reach into these pits and fissures leaving them covered in plaque. This is where dental sealants can help.
Dental sealants fill in pits and fissures, eliminating areas that are unreachable by brushing. These sealants are applied in liquid form to effectively fill crevices, which then quickly hardens to protect your teeth.
Eliminate plaque collecting pits and fissures. Ask us about sealants to prevent tooth decay!

Unless you’re born with splendid dental genes, you may have some feeling of disaffection with your smile. That’s why taking control of your smile’s appearance can be such and empowering moment. The challenge is finding a knowledgeable professional that can change an unsatisfactory smile into a winning one. Dr. Pollack has been designing beautiful smiles for more than thirty years. His approach to dentistry is a mixture of complete dedication and state of the art techniques. His style, including step by step explanations and intra-oral camera photos, seem more like collaboration than a traditional doctor/patient relationship. In particular, Dr. Pollack offers patients a “Smile Analysis” in which he evaluates your smile’s strengths and suggests ways to enhance it. Then, a new look and procedures to achieve it are proposed. The “Smile Makeover” is considered complete only when the patient is entirely satisfied.
