Crowns and Veneers


When a filling or crown begins to age and break down, the margins tend to open and allow bacteria to enter places you just can’t get with your toothbrush. An open margin is the amount of space between your restoration and the natural tooth. This will cause a breakdown that you can’t even see, but may cause pain, breakage of the tooth infection, and more. A simple 6-month maintenance schedule could have caught this yearly before the decay had progressed. Dr. Wassenar restored these broken and worn down teeth with crowns and porcelain veneers.

Worn Teeth


Having worn down her teeth through excessive grinding, porcelain veneers and crowns have helped cover them up, giving her a new smile that looks natural.

Worn and Misaligned Teeth


This patient, like so many, was sure he was going to need dentures since all of his friends and family were at that stage. Instead, we decided to leave the teeth that were fine alone, and we did a combination of porcelain veneers and crowns to correct the gaps and unevenness. At the same time, comfort and function were not neglected and we made sure that everything was well balanced. He was quite proud of his new smile. When we asked him if we could have his picture on our wall of fame, he was quite thrilled but concerned if he would scare away little kids!

Covid-19 (Corona) Virus

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

We hope this finds all our patients and friends healthy and well as summer is supposed to be arriving! Fingers crossed that we will see some sunshine in the Cariboo soon!

Our clinic staff have been working hard through this "new normal" of COVID-19 and ensuring that our clinic is exceeding the regulations to create the most safe and comfortable environment for all our patients. In the field of dentistry, we have always been experts in infection control. Now we are establishing a modified workflow to go above and beyond in this endeavor.

We are starting to resume some scheduling of more routine procedures as well as emergency care at this time. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about our current protocols or would like to schedule care.

Please respect our measures we are taking to ensure physical distancing within our office. This includes completing the COVID-19 prescreening form that is emailed to you before each appointment. We are also continuing to limit our waiting room to one person at a time and having patients complete payments and scheduling in their treatment room before exiting through the side door. This allows us to prevent interaction between patients whenever possible.

You may also find that we are slightly less flexible in our available appointment times for now as we are managing these new measures. We need to consider the amount of patients within our clinic at any time as well as stagger our patient entry and exit times.

Please be patient and kind as we all adjust to this protocol that is in place for the safety of all of us.

Take a few minutes to watch and share our latest instalment of Dr Wassenaar's appearance on the television program "The Wellness Hour". This interview outlines a lot of what we are doing to make sure that our patients have the utmost confidence and comfort in visiting Williams Lake Smiles at all times.

Our first TV interview has enjoyed 860,000 views with world-wide sharing. We would love to hear your feedback.

We look forward to seeing you in our office soon.
