Every new patient starts off with a thorough exam so that Dr. Pore can assess their needs. For comfort we provide digital x-rays that give results in seconds and Dr. Pore will also use an intraoral camera to show the patient any areas that need to be treated. If time allows, treatment can start the same day as this consult.
During any procedure patients are welcome to “escape” with video glasses that allow them to watch a movie right before their eyes. We find these glasses to be an invaluable tool in helping patients of all ages relax.
Additional services include:
Dr. Pore wants all of our patients to smile without any hesitation, which is why we offer white fillings, veneers, bleaching and full porcelain crowns. We also provide dental inlays and onlays which are used to repair teeth that have mild to moderate decay. An inlay is placed inside the cusp tips of tooth while an onlay is used when more extensive reconstruction is needed to cover one or more cusps. In some cases inlays and onlays can be an option to crowns, since more of the original tooth’s structure can be conserved. Inlays and onlays can also replace metal fillings for patients who desire a more natural looking smile.
Dr. Pore also can improve your smile with ultra-thin veneers called Lumineers
Many patients are now considering implants to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Implants are not only esthetically pleasing; they provide exceptional strength and durability. Patients find that they can eat what they want and don’t have to struggle to chew. For those patients with insufficient bone or gum tissue, we also offer small diameter implants called “mini implants.”
Dr. Pore performs root canals, surgical extractions, and wisdom teeth extractions. Thanks to Dr. Pore’s skillful execution, patients find that these procedures are often over quickly and are less painful than they might expect.
We have both traditional braces and the clear alternative – Invisalign
We offer the option of deep Laser Cleaning for those patients who feel that traditional cleaning isn’t effective or for those who find metal tools too painful.
