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.

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). With proper care, your crown may last for up to 10 years.
The zirconium and lithium disilicate materials closely resemble natural teeth, 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 natural!
Decayed or damaged teeth cause pain while you are chewing or speaking. The crown acts as a cap that covers the tooth, relieving that pain and protecting the tooth and surrounding teeth from further damage. Crowns can often prevent the need for tooth extraction.
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

Dental Crown Applications
Dental Crowns and Cosmetic Dentistry
If you have a broken tooth that negatively affects the aesthetics of your smile, a dentist can attach a zirconium or porcelain crown to the broken tooth and help you smile with confidence.
Dental Crowns and Root Canals
If you have an infected tooth, a root canal may be required before a crown can be attached. After your dentist has performed the root canal, a crown can protect the tooth.
Dental Crowns and Dental Implants
If you are missing a tooth entirely, the best restoration option may be implant dentistry. Dr. Stragier can work with you to place a dental implant, and then he can attach a crown to the implant to restore the lost tooth.
