In brief: A couple of minutes

It's one of the most simple, inexpensive procedures and one that can serve you for many years and prevent problems in the future.
It usually doesn't need any shots or drilling and a few sealants in all your molars can take about 10-15 minutes, no pain!

In brief: Minutes

The most underutilized of any dental procedure the sealant, which protects against cavities, should take only several minutes to place.
I use air abrasion to prepare the tooth then seal it up with a flowable resin (stronger than just an unfilled resin).
