What are Some Examples of Cosmetic Dentistry?

Patient choosing the color for her new veneers

Improving smiles is important to Dr. Kent and the professional team at the Smile Center. Cosmetic dentistry is a field of oral care that allows dentists to improve patient smiles, one treatment at a time. Creating an aesthetically pleasing smile is a source of great pride for Dr. Kent, and is rewarding for the staff of the Smile Center.

There are many ways that cosmetic dentists can improve a patient’s smile. With these various procedures, patients can enjoy the benefits of beautiful, fully functioning teeth. Here are just a few of the cosmetic treatments that are available at the Smile Center:


Missing teeth can be addressed with full or partial dentures. Dr. Kent offers immediate dentures for patients who need to improve their smile right away!

Dental Implants

An alternative to dentures is dental implants. Dental implants are titanium posts that are surgically implanted into the jawbone and topped with a dental crown to replace missing teeth. Dental implants can also be used with dentures as a way to stabilize and strengthen these restorations.


From traditional braces to Invisalign aligner trays, Dr. Kent offers orthodontic treatments for both teenagers and adults. Orthodontic treatment is an affordable way for patients to straighten their smile and improve the way they look.

Teeth Whitening

Whether a patient chooses to whiten their teeth in the dental office or take home professional-grade whitening kits, Dr. Kent can provide the tools patients need to whiten their teeth up to eight shades whiter in as little as one hour. The staff at the Smile Center can recommend the best whitening technique for you and your smile!

Porcelain Veneers

Veneers are a wonderful way for patients to address stubborn, imperfect teeth. Severely stained teeth that are not responding to teeth whitening techniques can benefit from veneers, which are bonded to the front of natural teeth to change their appearance.

Root Canal Therapy

In order to maintain a natural tooth despite problems such as deep cavities, infection, or the development of an abscess, patients may need to undergo root canal therapy with a periodontist. Buffalo NY dentist Dr. Kent can provide root canal therapy to remove the dental pulp from a tooth and maintain a patient’s natural tooth structure.
