You should be fine with just the one side just make sure its thick and gonna hold..I had a small gap on my baffles from the glass so I was able to squeeze the silicone through the gap to get a full seal.

I ran into the same issue with my trap. I used a long q-tip and put silicone on it and was able to make a better seal that way. It takes time, but it will make it water tight.
