In brief: Varies

The time varies for different sealant materials, patient cooperation, and other factors.
Typically, it only takes a few minutes to seal 2 teeth.

In brief: It's quick...

...And painless.
Usually takes just a few minutes. Know that the combination of fluorides and sealants has resulted in dramatic reduction of cavities in children. Both are great ideas.

In brief: Maybe 15 minutes

That is of course if no anesthesia is necessary which is usuallly the case.
