can sealants be put on front teeth? the enamel on all my teeth is very thin, so i’m wondering if dental sealants on all of them, not just the back ones would be helpful?

Dental : Dental sealants are designed to fill in the pits and fissures on the biting surfaces of the posterior teeth. They are not made to be used on the smooth surfaces of the front teeth.
