When someone has received dental work, you can usually tell. Between gold fillings and shiny replacement teeth, fixing teeth might seem unsightly. But that’s just not the case these days! Our modern day crowns and bridges in St. Petersburg allow for a seamless looking smiles that perfectly matches the rest of a patient’s mouth. 

If a patient needs to recover from severe oral decay, dental crowns at our St. Petersburg office are usually the best option. Dr. Gordon Krueger will install porcelain crowns in damaged areas of the mouth that perfectly resemble real teeth. As a permanent repair for severe dental issues, our St. Petersburg bridges and crowns allow patients to maintain a healthier bite and improve the aesthetics of their smile. With regular maintenance and cleanings, dental crowns can last for more than 20 years. 

Installing a dental crown at our St. Petersburg office will require at least two visits, allowing Dr. Krueger to clean the affected area, remove decay, and implement a customized crown. Porcelain dental crowns are the perfect solutions for patients needing replacement teeth or support for damaged teeth. Crowns are also great for patients experiencing unexplained pain in their back molars, which is often caused by a filling that resulted in hairline fractures. Our St. Petersburg bridge and crown experts can help you eliminate constant pain and get you your smile back. 

Dental Bridges 

Dental bridges bring increased stability to crowns because they prevent a replacement tooth from shifting other teeth out of position. A dental bridge procedure involves placing crowns on the adjacent teeth of a missing tooth, allowing for effective placement of the new tooth. Made with porcelain, dental bridges blend naturally with the rest of a patient’s mouth. 

If you are missing a tooth or suffer from oral decay, get in touch with Dr. Krueger, a dentist experienced in application of crowns and bridges for his St. Petersburg patients.
