At some point, most people need a tooth filled, a crown placed, or root canal therapy. If you are missing teeth, dental implants, crown and bridgework, or dentures can improve functionality and restore your smile. Orthodontic therapy can straighten teeth and prevent future problems. More serious issues may warrant full-mouth reconstruction.
Dr. Ouellette crafts solid, attractive restorations to repair damaged teeth and revitalize your whole mouth. Whenever possible, he chooses tooth-colored materials that compliment your existing teeth and create aesthetically pleasing repairs. We can refurbish your smile, relieve pain, and reestablish good oral health, so don’t put off necessary dental work any longer.
Contact the Bryant dental office of Dr. David Ouellette to schedule an appointment and get your smile back on track. Patients from Benton, Little Rock, and Central Arkansas visit our practice.
A straighter smile can improve confidence and enhance your smile, but did you know that straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease, and injury? When you have a bad bite, also called malocclusion, teeth may be crowded or improperly spaced, which can lead to dental health problems. Because crowded teeth are harder to clean, orthodontic problems may contribute to tooth decay, uneven tooth wear, gum disease, and even tooth loss.
Orthodontics is the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. When you visit our Bryant office, Dr. Ouellette will examine your mouth and determine if you could benefit from modern orthodontics, with treatment such as braces, retainers, Invisalign and other oral appliances. For adults who want to obtain a straighter smile without the embarrassment of metal braces, we offer Invisalign, a system of nearly undetectable, custom aligners.

When you have a fractured tooth, a leaking amalgam filling, or extensive tooth decay, Dr. Ouellette often recommends a crown. To strengthen remaining tooth structure and improve your smile, crowns cover the portion of a tooth that extends above the gum line. Depending on which tooth is involved, Dr. Ouellette may choose an all-porcelain, a porcelain-fused-to-metal, or an all-metal crown.
Initially, Dr. Ouellette prepares the tooth and makes a molded impression to send to the dental laboratory. He also places a temporary crown to protect the tooth while you wait for the final restoration. You will return to our office for another visit so that Dr. Ouellette can cement in the permanent crown.
If you live in the Benton or Central Arkansas area, call our Bryant office to schedule an appointment. Discover more about crowns in our dental library.
- Root Canals
Anyone who has endured the pain of a severely damaged tooth understands the benefits of root canal therapy. When the nerves, or pulp, inside a tooth are traumatized, they die and can cause tooth loss. During a root canal, Dr. Ouellette removes the pulp, replaces it with manmade material, and seals the tooth, often with a crown.
Many people avoid root canal therapy because they are afraid of pain, but the damaged pulp causes the discomfort, so treatment will actually make your mouth feel better. If you have put off root canal therapy, call our Bryant office today. We welcome patients from Benton, Little Rock, and Central Arkansas. Learn more about root canals.
