Why Choose Balboa Dental Care?

Our dentist, Dr. Stragier, has provided the communities of the greater San Diego area with expert care since 1985. Our conveniently located dental office in Clairemont opens early to accommodate your busy schedule. Other reasons to choose our dentistry practice for your cosmetic care includes:

Laser Dentistry and Other Advanced Technology

Our dentist office is equipped with the latest advanced technology to provide you with the world-class results you deserve. Dr. Stragier uses a precise diode for gum contouring, as well as 3-D cone beam radiography and digital x-rays to pinpoint dental issues before they develop into bigger problems. These tools also allow our cosmetic dentist to accurately plan treatments such as dental implants and dental crowns so that you can enjoy the long-term benefits of a restored smile.

Gentle and Comfortable Care

We provide a friendly and pleasant environment at our San Diego cosmetic dentistry practice because we understand that not everyone enjoys a trip to the dentist. For patients who need extra assistance with relaxing in the dentist's chair, we offer sedation dentistry options. Sedation can help those affected by dental anxiety and heightened sensitivity remain calm while Dr. Stragier provides treatment with a gentle touch.

Compassion and Expertise

For over 30 years, our dentist has worked closely with patients to help them achieve optimal oral health and beautiful smiles. The team at our San Diego office greets everyone who visits our practice with the same warmth and respect as we would our own family. We believe in building life-long relationships with our patients and can apply our decades of knowledge and experience to help you reach your smile goals.

Can I Afford Cosmetic Dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry treatments are generally not covered by dental insurance. If you require any preparatory care to restore your oral health prior, our friendly office staff will gladly file all the necessary paperwork with your insurance provider to ensure you take full advantage of your benefits. Plus, procedures like dental crowns that have both cosmetic and restorative purposes should be at least partially covered. I

For patients without dental insurance or who are concerned with out-of-pocket expenses that may not be in line with their budget, we accept payment plans and financing. The team at our San Diego office will work with you so that you can achieve your goals while staying within budget. 

Featured Cosmetic Treatments

Dental Crowns

A tooth that has been compromised due to trauma or decay can be restored and protected with a durable porcelain dental crown. With proper care and regular checkups, crowns can last over a decade. Prompt treatment with a dental crown can help you avoid the need for extraction but if a tooth is compromised to the point it cannot be saved, Dr. Stragier can fill the gap in your smile with a dental implant-supported crown.

Explore Dental Crowns


Made of translucent porcelain shells bonded to the front surface of a tooth, veneers can conceal dental imperfections such as chips, cracks, gaps, minor misalignment, misshapen teeth, and intrinsic staining that doesn't respond to whitening treatments. Crafted of the same durable materials as dental crowns, veneers can give you a beautiful smile that looks and functions just like natural teeth. If you are facing a quickly approaching event such as a wedding or class reunion where you want to leave a lasting impression, veneers can transform your smile in as little as two weeks.

Explore Veneers

Teeth Whitening

Safer and more effective than over-the-counter alternatives, professional teeth whitening can provide dramatic results. Depending on your needs and preferred treatment method, teeth whitening can be performed in-office or from the comfort of your own home. While take-home whitening kits are convenient, in-office whitening can provide a stunning transformation in a single appointment. Teeth whitening at our San Diego dentistry practice can lighten teeth by up to eight shades in less than an hour.

Dental Bonding

An affordable way to make cosmetic improvements to your smile, dental bonding can repair cracks, fill gaps, and improve the color of dull teeth in a single appointment. Using a composite resin material, Dr. Stragier can refine and contour problematic teeth into a pleasing shape. Once you and the dentist are happy with the results, he will cure the resin with a UV light for a durable finish.

Smile Makeover

If your teeth are affected by multiple imperfections, Dr. Stragier can completely transform your smile with a comprehensive smile makeover. Custom-tailored to suit each patient's individual needs, a smile makeover can combine multiple treatments to save you time and money. Treatments such as Invisalign or veneers combined with teeth whitening can provide incredible transformations.
