Crowns and Veneers

CROWNS & VENEERS RESTORATION

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

CROWNS AND VENEERS TO FIX 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

CORRECTION OF WORN AND MISALIGNED TEETH WITH PORCELAIN CROWNS AND VENEERS

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!

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

Greetings to patients and friends of Williams Lake Smiles!


June is here and hopefully, more summer weather is headed our way!


We are feeling excited and optimistic about the months to come as it appears that there is some positive easing of restrictions in British Columbia. Our team hopes this means that you will be able to slowly begin to see loved ones and move around a little bit more. Good news for us all!


In our office, your health and safety is still our utmost concern so we would like to update you and review our current protocols.


We are happy to be able to move from our online covid pre-screening forms to a verbal questionnaire. This means that you will no longer be required to do the online covid form before every appointment.
For the continued health and safety of all, we ask that you do not attend our office if you feel unwell at all or have traveled outside of the country within the past 14 days. We will ask you covid screening questions on the phone, at the time of scheduling appointments, and then again at the time of your arrival in our office. Mask wear is still mandatory for anyone entering our office. Your temperature will still be taken, shoe coverings provided and we will have you use hand sanitizer upon check-in at the door.


We will still be doing all we can to limit the amount of people in the office at one time and who you come into contact with while you are here.
We ask that you do not arrive too far ahead or drop off family members early for scheduled appointments. If our waiting room is full, we may ask you to remain in your vehicle and we can call you in as soon as we are ready. Please do not bring any extra people with you into the office. No spouses, children or siblings can accompany you to your appointment in the office.
We will continue with all other enhanced safety protocols to ensure that the health of our patients and staff team are our first priority and allow us to continue to provide you with our full range of exceptional dental care.


The Williams Lake Smiles team thanks to our amazing patients and friends for their ongoing patience and support through these unprecedented times of the past year and moving forward.
We appreciate your trust in us to help you be the healthiest you can be!


Please contact us with any questions or to schedule any of your dental needs.


Sincerely,


Dr. Rudy Wassenaar and the team at Williams Lake Smiles
