Welcome to Balboa Island Dentistry, Providing Skilled and Caring Dentistry

Balboa Island Dentistry in Newport Beach is proud to be your destination for advanced dental services. Our reputation for exceptional and kind dental care draws patients from throughout Costa Mesa, Irvine, Huntington Beach, Corona Del Mar, and greater Orange County and southern California. We are led in this mission of uncompromising quality, safe, and comfortable dental care by Stephen G. Alfano, DDS.

Dr. Alfano is a board-certified prosthodontist. As a prosthodontist, he specializes in restoring or replacing lost or damaged teeth and oral tissues. Additionally, he retains membership with many leading dental organizations, including the American Academy of Maxillofacial Prosthetics. In turn, he supports the healthy function of maxillofacial structures (the jaws and face).

Dr. Alfano’s membership with the Academy of Osseointegration further refers to his knowledge and experience with surgically placing dental implants in the jaw. When positioned precisely by specialists like Dr. Alfano, these implants “osseointegrate” or join the surrounding bone in the jaw. They function like tooth roots to stabilize the replacement teeth (crowns, bridges, dentures).

In all, Dr. Alfano and our team are equipped to offer:

  • All aspects of the dental implant process in-house, from the planning and precise positioning of each implant to the final restoration with lovely implant-supported tooth replacement options
  • Full-mouth rehabilitation to address even the most complex needs for dental care
  • Custom oral appliance therapy to provide symptom relief and discreetly manage conditions such as temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD), snoring, sleep-disordered breathing, or obstructive sleep apnea
  • Trusted cosmetic dentistry to enhance the appearance of the smile safely; for instance, composite dental bonding, porcelain veneers, and professional teeth whitening (in-office or from the comfort of home)
  • Proactive, preventative dentistry with routine professional cleanings, comprehensive exams, advanced diagnostics, and guidance on oral care products and oral hygiene techniques. Ozone therapy is offered during all cleaning appointments.
  • Comprehensive general dentistry for the whole family, and that evolves with patients’ needs over time; for example, dental restorations such as crowns, and predictable and painless root canal therapy to preserve badly damaged teeth.

A comfortable and pleasant experience at Balboa Island Dentistry is our priority. So, our team is among the 1% of dental professionals in the United States to be trained and adequately qualified to offer conscious sedation. Pills prescribed specifically to our patients support utmost relaxation among those who are apprehensive about dental visits or undergoing complex or lengthy treatments.

Experience our inviting and caring approach to sophisticated dental treatment and technology for yourself! Schedule an appointment at our office in Newport Beach by calling (949) 673-7820. For your convenience, you may request an appointment online.

We look forward to partnering with you and your family!
