Crowns & Fillings
Restore Your Beautiful Smile
Our expert restoration dentist and dental team are proud to offer a wide variety of services, including dental crowns and fillings in Altamonte Springs, FL, and the Orlando and Casselberry, FL, areas. Restoration dentistry is generally used to improve the health of your teeth, but it can also improve their appearance in notable ways.
What Is a Dental Crown?
A dental crown is a custom-made cap that replaces the natural crown of a tooth. It repairs the functionality and restores the size of a tooth that has suffered damage or decay beyond what can be fixed with a dental filling. Dr. Ouellette prepares the damaged tooth, takes a mold, and places temporary protection for the tooth until the permanent crown is ready. Our philosophy is to always preserve as much of your existing tooth as possible, with the dental crown sealing your restored tooth. Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, dental crowns are made from strong porcelain that is virtually invisible.
When Do You Need a Dental Crown?
Dr. Ouellette may recommend a dental crown if you have teeth with any of the following dental issues:
- Severe discoloration
- Decay or damage
- A crack or chip
- A misaligned bite
- Weakness due to root canal therapy
If you have a decayed tooth that needs to be restored, our cosmetic tooth-colored fillings are a natural-looking solution. A filling is a common procedure, but Dr. Ouellette uses a resin composite material instead of the traditional metal type. Any surface area where a filling can be noticed is a great location for tooth-colored fillings because we perfectly match the resin composite to the color of your existing teeth.
Our cosmetic fillings are highly durable and resistant to stress when installed in your mouth. Tooth-colored fillings blend with your surrounding teeth and enhance a bright, youthful appearance. No one will even notice they’re there – including you!
How Do You Know When You Need a Dental Filling?
If you suspect that you need a filling, don’t wait until your next routine appointment. Give our office a call if you experience any of the following:
- Toothache or ongoing pain
- Tooth sensitivity
- Lost or broken existing filling
- A dark spot on your tooth
Patients who ignore these signs could end up with a more advanced problem, as bacteria quickly invades an untreated cavity. Contact our office right away, so we can fully restore your tooth’s function as soon as possible.
