Dr. Alfano wants to see you smiling with confidence. We understand that going around with missing teeth isn’t easy. But we have a solution that lets you live without restrictions, so you’ll feel free to smile whenever you want and eat all your favorite foods.
Our metal-free, all-ceramic dental implants are custom-made to blend in with the rest of your smile. They’re surgically attached to your jaw for a secure hold, so they’ll never come out or move around while you’re talking or eating. Our all-ceramic implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth.
At Balboa Island Dentistry, we’ll use a single, natural-looking NobelPearl® implant to restore the gap in your smile caused by a missing tooth. Dental implants are the only tooth-replacement option that’s secured directly to your jawbone — that’s how they provide unmatched comfort and superior chewing power.
Our all-ceramic NobelPearl implants offer significant advantages compared to standard titanium-secured implants. For example, they’re completely white because there’s no titanium fixture to cast a dark shadow, which is something that can happen to patients with titanium-secured dental implants.
Some of our patients are looking to replace more than one missing tooth. In these situations, Dr. Alfano can use our 100% metal-free ceramic implants to restore stunning aesthetics to your smile. With this safe and healthy tooth-replacement option, you’ll be able to smile again with confidence.
Dr. Alfano will use individual dental implants to restore more than one teeth that are not adjacent. For gaps created by more than one missing teeth that are next to one another, Dr. Alfano may recommend an implant-supported bridge. This is a one-piece restoration used to fix a larger gap.
An implant-supported bridge is held in place using two or more dental implants. A bridge revitalizes the way your smile looks while providing outstanding comfort and stability so you can eat all your favorite foods.
Frequently Asked Questions
What types of dental implant solutions are there?
No matter how many teeth you need to replace, our Newport Beach dental implant provider can customize a solution that will fit your smile needs. Our options include single dental implants topped with stunning porcelain crowns, or implant-supported bridges to restore adjacent missing teeth. Each implant is designed to act as a natural tooth root, helping restore health and functionality to your smile. No matter which solution you choose, you can enjoy unmatched freedom and confidence for many years to come.
Are dental implants a permanent solution for tooth loss?
Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution for tooth loss, acting just like a natural tooth root to support your choice of restoration. Our metal-free ceramic implants integrate naturally into your jaw for unmatched strength and durability, without any of the health or allergy risks associated with titanium implants. Once the fixture properly fuses with your jawbone, Dr. Alfano can place your customized porcelain crown or bridge. With proper care, dental implants can last up to a lifetime.
