Improving their smile is a common reason why patients in the 14255 area reach out to Dr. Gordon Kent of the Smile Center in Buffalo, NY. Dr. Kent is a trusted and experienced dentist who understands that the appearance of our smile can greatly impact our self-confidence. To help patients achieve the smile they want, and deserve, Dr. Kent uses new techniques and procedures to provide the best cosmetic services for her patients. With a gentle touch and a commitment to only perform procedures that are necessary and wanted by the patient, Dr. Kent gives his patients something to smile about.

While the goal of cosmetic dental services are connected to appearance, the health of the mouth is also often improved through these services as well. For example, patients who want to improve misaligned teeth because they feel embarrassed by their smile often learn that the correction will improve the health of their teeth and gums by making the teeth easier to brush and removing pockets where food particles can easily become trapped.

There are many common cosmetic procedures that Dr. Kent provides, including:

  • Teeth whitening: Maybe the most commonly requested cosmetic treatment; teeth whitening can improve the smile in a single office visit. Professional whitening is easy and effective and can remove years of stains and discoloration, revealing a sparkling smile.
  • Invisalign: Many patients want to change their misaligned smile but don’t want to undergo traditional orthodontic treatment. With Invisalign, patients can adjust their smile in a manner that’s practically invisible to the rest of the world.
  • Veneers: Veneers are another option for patients who perhaps have a few small cosmetic flaws. Veneers are thin strips of porcelain that are bonded to the front of the teeth which hide imperfections such as discoloration, chipped or broken teeth, misalignment, or misshaped teeth.

Regardless of what your cosmetic need may be, patients can trust that Dr. Kent and his team will provide them with the care they need in a respectful and caring manner. To learn more, call the Smile Center today.
