sealing with a matte finish

I stupidly installed 800 square foot of white ceramic tile about 9 years ago. It has a matte finish and a slight texture that collects everything. I would like to seal it to fill in the small divits so it will not get dirty so quickly. I do not want a gloss finish. What do you suggest?

I'm afraid sealers won't stick to your ceramic tile, and aren't meant to work that way...they won't fill in those creavices,and stop dirt, in that way.
