James Hargas and our Oceanview Dental team are happy to restore your smile with a dental crown. We are pleased to be able to offer dental crowns for our patients in Oceanside, California and the neighboring communities who may be experiencing any of the following dental conditions:
–Cracked Tooth Syndrome: Do you have a tooth which hurts whenever you bite down on it? If you have pain when chewing, it may be because of a fractured tooth. Chewing can exert pressure on the fracture lines, creating pain. When a dental crown is placed on the tooth, the stress on the fractures is distributed evenly, which relieves tooth pain.
–Large Dental Filling: If you have a decaying tooth where the decay spans over half the width of the tooth, a dental crown can restore the tooth’s function and appearance while avoiding further damage to the tooth. A dental crown reinforces and strengthens a tooth because of the way it encases it.
–Root Canal Procedure: A dental crown is also the perfect solution after you have a root canal procedure performed. Placing a crown after decay is hollowed out of a tooth will effectively prevent the tooth from cracking.
–Worn Down Tooth: Have you noticed yourself constantly clenching your teeth? If you do this often, you may be experiencing what is called bruxism. Over time, bruxism can wear down a tooth or teeth. Another factor in wearing down a tooth is acid erosion which weakens tooth enamel over time. A dental crown is a good option for restoring a tooth damaged by either bruxism or erosion.
Whether you need to restore a tooth, anchor and attach a dental bridge, or complete a dental implant, dental crowns are an excellent option for the job.
