Tired of missing gaps in your mouth? Here at Florida Dental Centers, there are multiple ways to replace teeth that are missing, damaged, or decayed in St. Petersburg, Florida. From bridges and partial dentures to single dental implants, we have got you covered! Here is how each of our options can help restore your smile and get you back to living your life.
We offer dental bridges to help restore the mouth in a minimally invasive way. How dental bridges work is they are teeth-like porcelain structures placed between two healthy teeth and fused to them for support. Our dental bridges are the more affordable option of these three whilst still providing an aesthetic enhancement in eliminating those gaps in your teeth!
Whilst we also offer full-arch dentures, our partial dentures are a great way to fill in one or a few missing teeth! Like dental bridges, partial dentures support themselves using the healthy remaining teeth in your mouth. However, they are not fused to your other teeth which allows you the ability to take them out for cleaning or other needs.
Our partial dentures, like all of our dentures, are made at our in-house denture lab. This means we are not sending scans of your teeth far away, or even overseas, to get things made for you. Our staff who works with you take the plans we make for your dentures and work directly with our lab technicians to make your dentures work best for you all while reducing the costs of having to ship them across the world!
Single Dental Implants
The longest-lasting and most reliable method for replacing missing teeth are with single dental implants. This tooth replacement method works by replacing the missing structures of your tooth providing long-term stability to the rest of your teeth and jawbone as well as looking and acting the most like an actual tooth.
The process for getting a dental implant is fairly straightforward. First, we determine your eligibility for the implant. People who have had missing teeth for a long time may require additional surgeries such as bone grafting to successfully have a dental implant. Then, we take scans of your mouth and plan your surgery. Once we get the implant made, we make a hole where we place the post. This post, once healed, will hold a permeate porcelain crown on top of it. The healing process takes a few months but once fully healed, the crown is placed and your smile is restored!
