Restorative Dental Services
You’re not alone if you’re unhappy with your smile.
LET US HELP YOU RESTORE IT TO ITS FORMER GLORY.
Many of our patients visit us because they are unhappy with their smiles. Gaps, decay, chips, cracks, and other damage can make a person reluctant to show their teeth. But it is possible to restore your smile thanks to modern dental techniques that make it easier than ever to transform your grin into something you love again.
At Dental Care Associates of Buffalo, we use a variety of restorative treatments to help our patients regain oral function and strengthen their teeth. You can be assured that we will always do everything we can so you can keep your natural teeth: Extractions are always the last resort, and we only recommend them for teeth beyond repair.
Great team and great customer service! I have always felt well cared for and very welcomed at each visit.
Looking for a simple fix for damaged teeth?
WE CAN RESTORE YOUR SMILE WITH CROWNS AND BRIDGES.
Crowns and bridges are common treatments often paired with other restorative techniques. Crowns restore strength to damaged teeth and are cemented in place permanently for long-term stability. They help protect teeth from further damage, make chewing easier, and ensure the mouth and teeth function as they should.
Most bridges are made of several crowns fused together to fill gaps left by missing teeth. Both crowns and bridges are designed with each patient’s unique needs in mind to create comfortable restorations that feel natural. We accomplish this with the help of digital impressions, which capture every aspect of the tooth and surrounding area for an optimal fit.
No need to live with missing teeth.
A VARIETY OF DENTURES ARE AVAILABLE.
If you have multiple missing teeth, you might not feel like smiling often, but did you know that missing teeth can also greatly affect your life in other ways? Loss of proper oral function can make chewing, eating, and speaking difficult. Missing teeth can also alter your facial features because teeth normally provide the required structure for the face and cheeks.
Dentures are a great solution for missing teeth. You can have partial dentures if you still have some natural teeth remaining that are still in good condition, or if you need all of your teeth extracted, a full set of traditional dentures could be your answer. Dentures are convenient and removable. You will take them out to clean and leave them out at night while you sleep.
Another option is implant-supported dentures. In this scenario, your dentist will place two to six dental implants per arch, which will keep your dentures in place securely. This offers increased stability and ensures your dentures won’t budge. Many patients find this option feels more comfortable and natural in the long run. It also reduces the chance of soreness caused by the movement associated with removable dentures and eliminates the need for denture adhesive.

How are implants different from dentures?
LET’S TALK ABOUT DENTAL IMPLANTS.
Dental implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. You can have a single implant or multiple implants depending on your case. Your dentist carefully places the implants into the jawbone, and over time they naturally fuse together with the bone. The implant itself is made of titanium and looks somewhat like a screw. Last comes the final restoration, such as a crown, which goes over the implant to restore the aesthetics of your smile. We customize each implant to suit your smile and blend in seamlessly. Dental implants are also useful to keep dental bridges in place.
Dental implants aren’t suitable for children who are still growing. But for healthy adult patients with no active gum disease or bone-density issues, they are a wonderful option. Check with your dentist about whether you are a good candidate for implants.
Teeth grinding can cause significant wear.
PROTECT YOUR SMILE WITH A NIGHTGUARD.
Bruxism is the official term for grinding or clenching your teeth involuntarily. It is one of the most common reasons for untimely enamel wear and tear. Many people don’t even realize they grind their teeth because often it happens at night during sleep, while others catch themselves clenching during the day. Either way, it’s typically not something people consciously do, so it can be hard to identify the problem in the first place and much more difficult to stop the habit.
The signs of bruxism include TMJ pain, or discomfort in the temporomandibular joint that connects your lower jaw to your skull. This can affect chewing, speech, and swallowing. While TMJ pain can also be caused by head or neck trauma, the vast majority of cases we see are from teeth grinding. To protect your teeth from bruxism, consider wearing a nightguard while you sleep. Contact us today, and we will be happy to talk to you about our nightguard options.
