Through personalized treatment plans and cutting-edge techniques, we are committed to enhancing the appearance of teeth and gums to create beautiful and confident smiles.

Porcelain Veneers: Transform Your Smile

Porcelain veneers are a highly popular cosmetic dental option that can dramatically transform the appearance of your smile. These custom-made, thin shells of porcelain are bonded to the front surface of your teeth to cover imperfections and create a seamless and natural-looking smile.
Porcelain veneers can effectively address a wide range of cosmetic concerns, including:

  • Chipped or cracked teeth
  • Discolored or stained teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Misaligned or uneven teeth
  • Irregularly shaped teeth

Our experienced team at Balboa Island Dentistry specializes in designing and placing porcelain veneers to ensure optimal results for each patient. We will work closely with you to understand your unique goals and create a treatment plan that aligns with your desired outcome. With porcelain veneers, you can achieve a beautiful, symmetrical smile that boosts your confidence and transforms your overall appearance.

Teeth Whitening: Brighten Your Smile

Teeth whitening is a simple and effective cosmetic dentistry procedure that brightens and rejuvenates your smile. Over time, teeth can become discolored or stained due to factors such as aging, tobacco use, or consumption of certain foods and beverages. Our professional teeth whitening treatments can help eliminate stubborn stains and restore the natural brightness of your teeth.

At Balboa Island Dentistry, we offer take-home teeth whitening options to suit your preferences and lifestyle. Our take-home whitening kits allow you to whiten your teeth conveniently and comfortably at home.

Achieve a brighter and more vibrant smile with our teeth whitening treatments, tailored to meet your individual needs and deliver stunning results. Say goodbye to dull, yellowed teeth and hello to a radiant, healthy smile that exudes confidence and beauty.

Dental Crowns: Restore and Strengthen Your Teeth

Dental crowns are versatile restorations that can help restore and strengthen damaged or weakened teeth. A dental crown is a custom-made cap that covers the entire visible portion of a tooth above the gumline, providing protection and support for compromised teeth.

Our high-quality dental crowns can address a variety of dental issues, including:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • Cracked or fractured teeth
  • Misshapen or discolored teeth
  • Weak or worn-down teeth

Teeth that have undergone root canal therapy

At Balboa Island Dentistry, we use durable and natural-looking materials to craft customized dental crowns that blend seamlessly with your natural teeth. Our dental crowns not only enhance the aesthetics of your smile but also improve the functionality and longevity of your teeth.

Whether you are in need of a single dental crown or a full mouth restoration, our expert team will assess your oral health and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan to restore the health and beauty of your smile. Experience the benefits of strong, beautiful teeth with our custom-designed dental crowns that can revitalize your smile and improve your overall oral health.

Cosmetic Dentistry Q & A

What’s Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry is an area of dentistry that includes procedures with the sole purpose of affecting the aesthetic appearance of the patient’s teeth.

Are Cosmetic Dental Procedures Covered by Insurance?

In a majority of cases, the procedures aren’t covered since they don’t serve any medical purpose. In order to qualify for insurance coverage, a procedure needs to be necessary or help a person’s health in some way, shape or form.

What Types of Procedures Classify as Cosmetic?

Patients who want to change the appearance of their teeth may undergo procedures such as veneers, crowns, reshaping, resizing, implants, bonding or whitening. Of all cosmetic procedures, whitening is the most frequently sought.

What Are the Risks of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Some patients may experience pain or sensitivity after having a cosmetic dental procedure. However, most patients undergo a procedure and feel nothing after the procedure. With some procedures such as dental bonding, porcelain veneers, or crowns, the patient may develop pain or an infection. This occurs in patients who already have an infection, and it’s not treated adequately prior to the procedure. The infection continues until the patient requires a root canal. With a highly skilled Prosthodontist like Dr. Alfano, the risk of complication is minimized. Any procedure that introduces a foreign material, including a composite filling or crown, may lead to an unpleasant reaction.

Are the Results of Cosmetic Dentistry Permanent?

The results of a cosmetic dentistry procedure aren’t always permanent, but this is completely dependent upon the procedure. Whitening is a temporary change in the tooth’s color, and the teeth may become stained again if the patient doesn’t change certain habits or maintain the whitening with a take-home gel. Veneers tend to last up to 10 years but may last much longer. Dental implants may last a lifetime. Dental bonding lasts for quite some time as long as patients don’t partake in behaviors such as biting their fingernails or chewing on pens.
