I was picky and wanted dental sealants that would match the color of my teeth perfectly. To fulfill my request, Dr. Van Kooten used a sealant material she normally would not use. She did that even though it created extra work on her part. The sealants are beautiful and virtually invisible! I also had to get a filling which turned out just as great! High quality work!
