FAWN’S REVIEW OF COSMETIC DENTISTRY

WHAT CAN COSMETIC DENTAL TREATMENTS DO?

  • Correct the size, shape, as well as the alignment of several teeth or the entire smile
  • Correct or improve bad bites
  • Fill unattractive gaps in between teeth
  • Lighten or brighten the shade of the teeth
  • Replace teeth that have gone missing
  • Repair dental damage, such as decay, cracks or chips in teeth
  • Replace existing dental appliances that have surrendered to wear and tear

WHAT CAUSES DISCOLORED TEETH?

The discoloration of teeth is a normal part of aging. As we age, the wearing down of the dental enamel contributes to the dull appearance of the teeth. However, there are also other factors that cause teeth discoloration, which include smoking or excessive drinking of tea or coffee. Certain medications, specifically some antibiotics, also cause teeth discoloration. With teeth whitening procedures or the use of veneers, you can have a brighter smile in no time.

WHAT COSMETIC DENTISTRY PROCEDURE CAN ADDRESS MISSING TEETH?

The application of dentures may not be a cosmetic dentistry procedure, but they greatly provide aesthetic benefits for the patient missing all or some of their teeth. If the patient has only lost a tooth or two, dental implants or bridges may be an option for him or her. During your consultation with Dr. Wassenaar, you will be provided with treatment options that are appropriate for your condition.

WILL I UNDERGO SEDATION DURING COSMETIC DENTISTRY PROCEDURES?

Usually, the patient will undergo dental sedation during a cosmetic dentistry procedure, yet the level of its usage greatly depends upon several factors, which include one’s health status and medical history, the cosmetic dentistry procedure performed, as well as the facility’s familiarity with the sedation modalities.

WHAT PROCEDURES WILL I UNDERGO IF I WANT A SMILE MAKEOVER?

Veneers are typically used to achieve a smile makeover. However, Dr. Wassenaar will still recommend other options for your specific condition. This may involve other cosmetic dentistry procedures like teeth whitening, dental crowns, inlays and onlays, or composite bonding.

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
