Dr. Gordon Kent and the team at The Smile Center in Buffalo, NY not only provide general dentistry solutions such as cleanings and fillings, but they also offer emergency dental care when patients need it most. Emergencies can happen, either dental or medical, and it is important that patients seek the right professional for their needs. When problems occur to the smile, it is essential that men and women make an immediate visit to their dentist for repair.

Several types of emergencies may occur and require the assistance of a dental professional. These include:

  • Knocked out teeth
  • Loose or lost restoration (filling, crown, or bridge)
  • Broken appliance (denture)
  • Injury or trauma to the mouth area
  • Broken tooth enamel
  • Pain in the mouth

Dr. Gordon Kent allows patients to enjoy emergency treatment as necessary. At The Smile Center, emergency dental care can be provided around the clock. In fact, our phones are staffed 24/7 so patients do not have to speak to an answering service or leave a message with a machine. The live person on the emergency care line can give you specific instructions regarding how you should proceed. They can also make sure you get in with the dentist as soon as possible for care to ensure the problem is addressed in a timely manner.

Emergency dental care is readily available for both new and existing patients. We accept anyone in the community who has an immediate problem that needs attention. Dr. Gordon Kent welcomes new patients into his state-of-the-art dental practice for care and attention, and can also provide new emergency patients with long-term care if they decide to continue to receive services through the Smile Center.
