Dentist in Buffalo offers immediate dentures

Buffalo Immediate Dentures at The Smile Center

Dr. Gordon Kent of the Smile Center in Buffalo is a dentist who focuses on ensuring patients have access to the treatments they need to not only improve the health and function of their smile, but to address cosmetic issues that may negatively impact the appearance of the teeth. Our team encourages patients to consider the benefits of a wide range of solutions including immediate dentures.

What are immediate dentures?

Immediate dentures can replace the entire smile in less than two hours. They eliminate the need for patients to go without teeth for an extended period of time.

Who is a candidate for immediate dentures?

The best candidates for immediate dentures are patients who are missing many teeth or have remaining teeth need to be extracted. Patients who want a fast solution and fewer dental visits may want to consider the advantages of immediate dentures. Immediate dentures are a great way to have the teeth prepared and functional in just one appointment. Immediate dentures are used for approximately three months during the healing process and then final dentures are fabricated for permanent results.

Before we consider patients for immediate dentures or the preparation of the smile for full dentures, we speak with the patients to determine if it is the best solution for their unique needs. When it comes to tooth replacement, there is no one-size-fits-all option.
