A Guide to Dental Specialties at Dental Care Associates of Buffalo

How we take care of teeth at Dental Care Associates.

We have the knowledge at Dental Care Associates of Buffalo!

Known for our comprehensive range of dental specialties, you can rest assured that we have the knowledge to take care of the whole family. As a family dentist, we are able to work with your entire family—no matter their age. Whether you or a loved one requires cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, orthodontics, or suspect you have sleep apnea, we have solutions that are right for you!

When we say we specialize in many different areas, we mean it! We believe it is vital for our staff to understand the ins and outs of each specialty of dentistry, ensuring we help you feel confident that you are making an informed decision.

Family Dentistry

We pride ourselves in keeping those teeth strong and healthy, no matter your age! Whether we’re taking care of that first baby tooth, or are maintaining those adult molars, our goal is to create a comfortable environment for our patients.

During our regular cleanings, we do more than just clean your teeth. We perform oral cancer screenings, check for cavities or anything else that could become a bigger problem later, and educate you and your family on how to properly care for your teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Though we might do everything we can to protect our natural smile, life sometimes gets in the way. That’s where cosmetic dentistry comes in to renew your smile to its rightful glory. Cosmetic dentistry shines when it comes to enhancing smiles and restoring your confidence.

If your teeth have begun to yellow, whether it is because of lifestyle choices or simply aging, our in-office tooth whitening could be the solution. If you have gaps or misaligned teeth, veneers or dental bonding can fix you right up in a mere two appointments. No matter what the issue might be, you can bring it up to your dentist, and they will help you choose the right smile makeover options for you. You might be surprised how much that renewed smile will affect your confidence!

Restorative Dentistry

True to their name, accidents come out of nowhere. Sometimes tooth loss and damage can come from lifestyle choices, but other times, they can come due to accidents or trauma to the mouth. Bridges, crowns, and dental implants create a simple but permanent solution for severely damaged teeth or gaps caused by tooth loss. If the section of missing or damaged teeth is larger, dentures can help!

Even one missing or damaged tooth can dramatically affect the function of your teeth. It can be harder to chew food properly and can even affect speech. Unsurprisingly, it can hinder your self-confidence. Give that smile the boost it needs and talk to your dentist to see if restorative dentistry might be the pick-me-up your smile needs.


Orthodontics is the best way to help correct bite issues and misaligned teeth, no matter your age. Fixing that bite can go a long way to preventing future problems. It makes it easier to keep every inch of your teeth clean, including those tight places where the teeth overlap. If misalignments, also known as malocclusions, are left untreated, they can cause greater issues as time goes on, including an overbite or underbite.

Traditional braces are made with wires and bands to help slowly move the teeth back into place. But they aren’t the only option anymore. Clear aligners to the rescue! We use ClearCorrect aligners to discreetly move those teeth back into place. To get set up, you don’t even have to worry about creating messy impressions! Now they can be custom fitted to your teeth using a digital scanner. Easy and mess-free!

Snoring & Sleep Apnea

Did you know that sleep apnea can often be caused by dental issues? If your partner has been complaining about your snoring, or you just can’t seem to wake up rested, you might talk to your doctor about sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a common type where the muscles in the throat relax and close off your airway. As you would imagine, this can cause some big issues to your overall health over time.

Once your doctor diagnoses you with sleep apnea, our team can help you find that full night’s sleep. We work hand-in-hand with your physician to ensure you get the best treatment possible. We can help you get customized oral appliances to keep your night both restful and comfortable. If this sounds like you, schedule your free consultation today!
