Orthodontics, Marietta


At Dental Care Center at Kennestone, we care about the health and beauty of your smile. When teeth are crooked or misaligned, it can affect your oral health as well as the appearance of your smile. Orthodontics use appliances like braces and aligners to shift teeth into place, improving the comfort, beauty and health of your smile. Our dental team offers orthodontic solutions for our adult and teen patients that have crooked, gapped or misaligned teeth, including:

When most people think of orthodontic treatment, they envision metal braces. While traditional braces are still commonly used to shift teeth into place, they are no longer the only option. Innovations like Invisalign allow our patients to get the straight smile they desire without the need for metal brackets or wires. Clear aligners are barely noticeable and fit right over your teeth. They are more comfortable than braces and can be removed when you eat or need to brush your teeth. For most people, they are a more convenient and discreet option when they want to straighten their smile.

Get a Straight, Healthy Smile

Orthodontic treatment is not just for cosmetic purposes. While most people want a straight, beautiful smile, orthodontics also help improve the health of your teeth. Straightening crooked or gapped teeth can help make them easier to clean. Orthodontics can also improve the bite alignment, reducing pressure on your jaw and helping combat issues like TMJ. If your teeth are misaligned, they could cause you more oral health problems and require more treatments in the future. Orthodontics can be a solution to improve your oral health while giving you a beautiful smile at the same time.

If you or your teenager have misaligned teeth, come see our team at Dental Care Center at Kennestone. We can help you straighten your smile and improve your oral health. Our office in Marietta accepts many types of dental insurance, and we offer financing for your orthodontic treatment. Contact our office to schedule your orthodontic consultation today.

  • I absolutely love this dental experience. I used to dread having to make dental trips but since finding this office 4 years ago that took the dread away. From making the appointment, to visiting with the office staff. It's great. The Hygienist is very friendly. But that Dr. O,
    she is a ray of sunshine. Perfect bedside manner, concerning, caring, helpful, and so very positive. I do not have dental insurance and could go somewhere else that may be a tad cheaper but I wouldn't trade this dental office for the world. They feel more like family. Give them a try you won't regret it!

  • I am very happy I came to this dental office! I tend to avoid going to the dentist because of past experiences, but my visit today was 10/10!! The dental hygienist, Kelly, and Dr. Buffington were so nice and thorough. I highly recommend! So happy I found a good and nice dental office finally!! :)

  • Always a great experience when I come in for cleanings or any work that has to be done. Special thanks to my hygienist Kelli for a good cleaning today and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Buffington is also terrific and very attentive. The entire staff will make you feel welcome and comfortable.

  • I have been a patient here for many years. I’ve always had positive experiences. I especially like the Dental Hygenist “Callie”. She is just the best, always smiling and cheerful, just what you need at the Dentist. She is very experienced and I’ve learned a lot from her. All the Staff is very nice and polite and Dr Buffington is great also. I’ve had a lot of dental work done by her and never had a problem. She is very gentle and painless too!

  • The dentist, Dr. Buffington, hygienist, and staff were professional and efficient. Dr. Buffington provided an excellent explanation to my question so that I understood the situation. High recommend this dental practice.

  • Dr. Buffington has to be the kindest, most patient dentist in the world. The staff is amazingly attentive, non-judgemental and offers a very comforting experience. I appreciate how patient they are with me, a 44-year old that still cries and would rather give birth (without medication) than have dental work. I hope you catch my drift😉

  • I really like Dr. Buffington. She gave me a plan that gives me hope about a TMJ issue. Everyone on the staff was professional and seemed genuinely caring. I would highly recommend the office.

    It’s a warm and welcoming atmosphere, and they don’t try to sell you on things you don’t need.

  • I highly recommend this dental practice. They took prompt and amazing care of me to address a TMJ episode. Dr. Buffington and all employees I encountered were professional, friendly, caring and knowledgeable. They set me on the path of recovery and have earned my respect and business going forward. How refreshing to engage with a business that truly understands customer service.
