We are pleased to announce that we are now permitted to provide all dental procedures and services. Our communities have been through a lot over the last few months. Smile Center is committed to the safety of our patients and our team. We will do our best to accommodate your scheduling needs. We thank you for your understanding during this changing time.

We follow recommendations and guidelines made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). This allows us to make sure that our infection control procedures are up-to-date and enables us to provide the safest environment for our patients and our team.

Smile Center has implemented additional safety precautions to help protect our patients and staff. We will be scheduling appointments in a manner that promotes social distancing and allows for adequate time for us to disinfect all areas of use in between appointments.

Upon arrival at our office,
  • Call us before entering the building to let us know you have arrived. We will call or text you once the office is ready for you to enter.
  • We ask that patients enter the office unaccompanied.
  • A member of our team will meet you at the door to take your temperature with a contactless thermometer.
  • Every person entering the office is expected to wear a face covering and will be asked to sanitize their hands immediately upon entry.
  • A COVID-19 questionnaire will be reviewed with you.

Clear plastic screens (sneeze guards) have been installed at the front desk to minimize exposure to airborne pathogens. Air exchange devices and new suction systems have been obtained and are being used to ensure the safety of patients and team.

Our doctors and staff will be wearing all of the recommended personal protective equipment (PPE).

Thank you for being part of our family dental practice. We value your trust and loyalty and look forward to welcoming you back.

Best dentures in Buffalo are available at an affordable cost

With conventional dentures, you might be toothless for 12 weeks, waiting for a lab to make your new teeth. We can save you the hassle and time associated with this traditional option, courtesy of our immediate dentures procedure.

While we still make a series of impressions of your jaw to ensure the upper and lower parts of your mouth meet correctly, the departure from traditional dentistry happens when we fit you with a denture on the same day that we pull any remaining teeth. You’ll wear this immediate denture until you receive your final set of new teeth.

There are several advantages to this option, including:

  • Aesthetics – Placing a denture immediately instead of waiting for one to be made means no one knows you are missing any teeth. You don’t have to feel self-conscious. In addition, because you are never “toothless” you won’t see any facial distortion or sinking that may occur when teeth are removed for a length of time.
  • Accuracy – It’s easier to duplicate the natural shape, color, and arrangement of your teeth when you still have some teeth present.
  • Healing – It protects your tissues at the time of the extraction, aiding in the restorative process that happens while we make your lasting dentures.
  • Function – You won’t see any changes in speech patterns or chewing caused by missing teeth. You get accustomed to your new teeth quickly and effortlessly as they’re placed in one visit.

Over the longer run, immediate dentures have an added cost and practicality benefit. Should you ever need repairs, relining, or the denture breaks, you’ll still have the immediate one and can wear it as a backup.

Due to the many health implications associated with missing teeth, most dental insurance companies pay at least a portion of the dentures cost. Even if you don’t have insurance, we can match you to payment plans that stretch the cost over several months; frequently at no-interest should you qualify. Our Smile Center Plan offers 15 percent discounts on implants, and a number of other freebies (from examinations to emergency care) to those patients without insurance for a low annual fee.

The Smile Center offers the best dentures at an affordable cost in Buffalo by combining today’s quality procedures with a number of payment options that you won’t see at many other offices. We can match you (and your budget) to the right treatment plan. Call the Smile Center at 716-634-4090.
