Full mouth dental implants from dentist in Buffalo

Tooth loss detracts from your smile. The appearance changes by having a gap in place of a missing tooth. Functionally, your teeth may shift causing your bite to change. Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience, but it doesn’t have to be. Let Dr. Gordon Kent and the professional team at Smile Center in Buffalo help you restore the health and functionality to your mouth. Our team offers single tooth or full mouth dental implants as options to replace missing teeth.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are cylinders or posts that replace missing teeth. Implants are sturdy and provide security and stability for dental restorations or the replacement teeth. Previously, if patients were missing multiple teeth, they either had to deal with the unsightly gap or use bridges or dentures. With our experienced team, dental implants can be placed to save your smile. Depending on the patient’s need, 3 to 4 implants may be used to replace a few teeth. 6 to 8 implants are used to support a full arch of new teeth.

Benefits of dental implants

At Smile Center, we use top quality materials so you feel confident knowing you have the best dental implant and restoration for a natural-looking smile. Implants are a great option to restore and maintain the health and appearance of the mouth. Advantages of implants include:

  • Dental implants are stable, durable restorations. They can last a lifetime with proper care.
  • Implants replace the tooth root which stimulates and maintains the health of the jawbone.
  • Topped with a dental restoration, implants improve the function and aesthetics of a smile marred by missing teeth.

Dr. Kent has been placing dental implants since 1981. Every step of the dental implant process is performed in Smile Center’s state-of-the-art facility which assures patients the comfort and convenience of seeing familiar faces throughout the procedure as well as the confidence in receiving the best care and quality restorations.

Let dental implants restore the health and quality of your smile. You are in good hands with the expert team at Smile Center. Schedule your appointment today 716-634-4090.

I had surgery for immediate dentures on 21st November and I just have to say that Laura and Dr. Kent are amazing. I had absolutely no pain only a few tender spots and didn’t even need my prescribed pain medication! I read alot of horror stories on the internet and I would absolutely recommend going to The Smile Center if you choose to go through this process. Although these aren’t my final set of teeth, I can finally smile and not be ashamed of how I look! I have no doubt my finals will be even better! Thank you Dr. Kent and staff.
