Getting Fit for the Summer Includes Perfecting Your Smile

When you think of your favorite aspects of the people you meet, how important is their smile? Although many people focus on dieting and exercising to perfect their bodies, a smile is often the most memorable feature of the people you meet. Everyone’s smile is different, and the intensity and genuine nature with which you smile are some of the most powerful ways you have to engage people.

Isn’t it Time to Get Your Smile in Shape as Well?

Even if you have the highly-coveted perfect body, a stained or crooked smile can be a dealbreaker for some people. Fortunately, multiple methods are available for improving your smile. Whether your smile is a few shades darker than you’d like it to be, or whether your teeth grew in as if they had a mind of their own, there are effective ways to fix your smile. Perhaps some of these methods will work for you.

Brightening Up Your Smile

A wide variety of foods and habits can stain your teeth, reducing the brightness of your smile. Smokers and coffee drinkers are at the most risk of a stained smile. Whichever lifestyle choice has stained your teeth, it’s important to know that numerous products are available for brightening your smile by a few shades at a time. These include the following office treatments and take home whitening products.

Whiten your Teeth at Our Office

Scheduling a whitening at your dental provider can make an immediate difference in your appearance. Your dentist can use a combination of fluorides and special solutions to make your teeth a few shades brighter. Office whitening procedures are typically more potent than home versions and can be the perfect thing for getting your smile in peak form this summer.

Whiten your Teeth at Home

Whitening products have become an 11-billion-dollar industry, and there are a huge variety of them available. These include special kinds of toothpaste, swabs, strips, gels, and others that are designed to brighten up your smile. Advantages of these home whitening kits are that they’re typically inexpensive and offer numerous ways for consumers to whiten their teeth. As a drawback, it’s important to note that this enhancement is temporary, so proper oral care is still the best way to keep your teeth fresh and clean.

A Nice, Straight Smile to Show the World

In addition to ensuring that your teeth are the brightest they can be, taking action to make sure your smile is straight is also a factor that contributes to beauty. One or two imperfections can be endearing, but a smile full of crooked teeth can cause insecurity in many patients. If your teeth didn’t grow in perfectly, you’re not alone. Various methods are available for giving you the symmetrical smile you deserve.

Straiten your Teeth with Metal Braces

When most people think of straightening out their teeth, they think of traditional metal braces. Still highly-effective at aligning patients’ teeth, metal braces are the tried and true solution. If you’re open to metal braces, you’ll be fitted with a bracket on each tooth, and a metal wire that runs through the brackets. Patients typically choose the color of their bands, a decision that adds customization to the process. For those who don’t mind wearing metal braces for a year or two, it’s an effective treatment.

Fix your Smile with Clearline Invisible Braces

If you’re one of the patients who prefers a quick, less conspicuous solution for your crooked teeth, Clearline Invisible Braces are a reliable option. After a 3D scan of your teeth, a set of mouth trays enables incremental adjustments to your smile. Aside from the obvious benefit of being invisible, Clearline also requires a much shorter amount of time than traditional braces, often only taking as little as 3 weeks to adjust your teeth. Most patients will qualify for Clearline, but discuss it with Dr. Wassenaar to ensure it’s your best option.

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

Happy New Year to all our patients and friends of Williams Lake Smiles!

There’s just something about a new year! It represents a clean slate, a new beginning for many of us. As we finished up with 2020, we all want to believe that 2021 will bring a sort of relief from much of what the past year has brought us. 

Although there are still many restrictions and hurdles ahead of us, we are all doing our best to prove that we are resilient and focused on brighter and healthier days ahead.

The start of 2021 finds many of us evaluating our health and making plans and potential changes for the year ahead. So, as you are making some New Year’s resolutions, don’t forget to add dental care to that list!

Managing your dental health is a key factor of keeping your immune system strong to help protect you against any attack. Just as important as a good diet, rest and exercise, your dental health is something you should not ignore.

Often dental changes can happen with little to no discomfort or warning. Just as changes in the rest of your body happen, it is the same for your teeth and mouth. We all know that age, stress, hormones and busy schedules (just to name a few) sneak up on us and seem to cause changes to our bodies almost overnight. Where you used to be able to eat whatever you wanted, barely exercise and stay up all hours of the night, you might be noticing that you just can’t do that anymore! It is similar with our dental care routine. If you have been doing the same routine for what seems like forever, it might be time to evaluate and change things, even slightly, to be more effective in keeping your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.

Our team at Williams Lake Smiles is here to help make your health a top priority. We look forward to continuing to work with you as life changes happen and want to make dental pain and emergency the smallest challenges possible.

This past year we have been working even harder to make our office a safe, welcoming place for you to visit. You may notice our policies and protocols have changed and will continue to do so based on recommendations from our professional colleges, provincial and local health authorities. Please respect these new policies and understand that some extra screening and time is required in order to achieve this. To keep things running smoothly, it is very important to complete all screening paperwork prior to all visits to our office. If the required paperwork is not completed, we may need to reschedule your appointment time.

Contact our team to schedule a dental appointment to help you be the healthiest you in 2021.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Dr Rudy Wassenaar and the team at Williams Lake Smiles
