Cosmetic Dentistry
Your smile is both the first and the lasting image you leave with others. There is no reason to live each day looking less than your best. Whether you need full mouth reconstruction or whitening and recontouring, Dr. Guthrie can transform your smile using the latest in dental technology.

Your teeth can be the most striking feature on your face. With advances in dentistry you need not have stained, chipped or mis-shaped teeth. Beautiful smiles can be created using a combination of Veneers, Crowns, Bridges, Implants or bonded (white) fillings.

In Dr. Guthrie's comfortable office you can relax in tension-melting massage chairs while enjoying herbal tea or perhaps cold bottled water on a hot day.

When designing your ideal smile, cosmetic dentist Dr. Bryan Guthrie includes you in every step of the process. Each detail is considered, including but not limited to:

•  Oral health history
•  Shape of your face
•  Support of your lips
•  Health and position of your gums
•  Your age and tooth color preference
•  Overall symmetry of teeth and gums
•  Ideal length and shape of your teeth
•  Lifestyle and habits
•  The relationship between your jaw joint and how your teeth come together

Cosmetic Bonding
Cosmetic bonding rebuilds chips and fills in gaps with a resin that can be colored to blend with the surrounding teeth. The bonding adheres directly to the surface of the tooth and is hardened in place with bright ultraviolet light. Cosmetic bonding is an attractive option because it:

• Is cost effective
• Looks natural
• Improves tooth shape

Cosmetic dentistry bonding may require replacement due to wear and gradual discoloration over time. For this reason some patients prefer more permanent solutions such as dental crowns, bridges, and porcelain veneers. All these options should be discussed with your dentist.

Dr. Guthrie uses crowns, or 'caps', for restoring severely decayed or fractured teeth. First, the dentist removes the damaged portion of the tooth. Then, a unique mold is taken and used to manufacture a crown out of gold or porcelain to fit the healthy tooth remains almost perfectly. The crown is then fixed into place with special cement. Dental crowns provide the following benefits:

• They restore the tooth's original shape and size
• They help prevent decay from forming on the underlying tooth
• They add strength to the tooth's structure
• They are very durable

Dental crowns help prevent the need for root canals and tooth extraction by reducing the risk of tooth fracture and tooth decay.

Dental bridges serve to replace one or more missing teeth. First, the dentist prepares the teeth on either side of the missing tooth to receive crowns. Then, a false tooth is attached between the two crowns. Once the crown-false tooth-crown combination is cemented into place, it 'bridges' the gap left by the missing tooth. Bridges offer several benefits:

• They look like new teeth
• They are a durable mouth fixture
• They prevent surrounding teeth from shifting to fill the gap
• They restore a more natural bite and chewing ability

For these reasons, dental bridges are a good investment compared to dentures. If a bridge is not possible, or the adjacent teeth don't need crowns, dental implants may be the best alternative.

Porcelain Veneers
Dental veneers are custom crafted porcelain laminates fitted by a dentist over the front of an existing tooth. They bond directly to the front of the tooth, dramatically enhancing its shape, color, and appearance. Porcelain veneers are:

• Virtually undetectable
• Very durable
• An effective way to improve smile appearance
