Damaged or decayed teeth are uncomfortable and unhealthy. They also make it difficult to chew and speak.
Dental crowns can cover a damaged tooth, restoring form and function to your bite and smile.
Dr. Daniel Stragier provides dental crown services at Balboa Dental Care in San Diego, CA. Do you need a dental crown?
The Benefits of Dental Crowns at Balboa Dental Care
Strong and Durable
At Balboa Dental Care, crowns are made of zirconium and lithium disilicate. These materials are remarkably strong (stronger than traditional porcelain crowns). With proper care, your crown may last for up to 10 years.
The zirconium and lithium disilicate materials closely resemble natural dental tissue, and Dr. Stragier will spend extra time at no extra charge to make sure the color of your crown matches the surrounding teeth. No one will know your crown isn't a natural tooth!
Decayed or damaged teeth cause pain when chewing or speaking. The crown acts as a cap that covers the tooth, relieving that pain and protecting the tooth from further damage. Crowns can often prevent the need for tooth extraction.
"A Comfortable and Stress-Free Environment"
My family and I have been patients since 2000. I have nothing but good things to say about the friendliness and professionalism of both the staff and Dr. Stragier. Dr. Stragier has made himself available after hours to take care of emergency dental issues. A comfortable and stress free environment.View On Google
Dr. Stragier is the best dentist I've ever been to!! All the staff was amazing. He was kind and gentle and I felt NO pain during a ROOT CANAL. Couldn't recommend him any higher! Also the Dental Assistant Pam was so sweet and really funny. Wouldn't ever go to a different dentist now.View On Google

"I Would Not Go Anywhere Else"
I think I was one of his first patients and have remained one for over 20 years. He is smart, gentle and seems always to have the patient's best interest in mind. His loyal staff (they have remained the same for the past 20 years) are also very smart and caring. I now have to travel a bit to see Dr. Stragier, but I would not go anywhere else.View On Google
Dr. Stragier, Pam, Terry and the dental hygienists are the BEST I've ever been to. Dr. Stragier's techniques are very gentle and he doesn't try to sell procedures you may not need. Even my (reluctant patient) husband has done very well there for many years.View On Google
Dental Crown Applications
Dental Crowns and Cosmetic Dentistry
Damaged teeth can be strengthened with porcelain crowns. If you have a broken tooth that negatively affects the aesthetics of your smile, a dentist can attach a crown to the broken tooth so that you can smile with confidence. These restorations can also be used as an alternative to porcelain veneers to cover a stained tooth that cannot be improved with teeth whitening due to intrinsic stains.
Dental Crowns and Root Canals
When decay reaches the inner portion of a tooth, our dentist may recommend a root canal. After your dentist has performed the root canal, a crown can be placed to protect the weakened tooth while restoring the appearance and function of your smile.
Dental Crowns and Dental Implants
If you are missing a single tooth, the best restoration option may be implant dentistry. Dr. Stragier can work with you to place a dental implant, which can be restored with a crown made of porcelain or a more premium material to completely replace the lost tooth.
Dental crown treatment by Dr. Stragier at Balboa Dental Care in San Diego, CA, typically costs between $1,200 and $2,000. Costs can vary based on the material used for the crown (porcelain or zirconium) and the severity of the tooth damage. Dr. Stragier regularly reviews the prices of other dentists in the area to ensure that his prices are competitive.
Balboa Dental Care works with most dental insurance providers and offers payment plans for major work, including plans with zero-percent financing for 12 months. We try our best to make sure that cost never stands between our patients and the dental treatments they need.
