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.

COVID Patient Protocol

Our staff at Williams Lake Smiles are following careful safety protocol to keep our patients, team, and community safe at all times.

There are a few things that we are asking of you, our patients, as well:

-Due to our small waiting area, please do not bring any extra family members with you to your scheduled appointment.

-When you do arrive for your scheduled time, please wait in the front boot room for direction from a member of our team for entry protocol. If there is already another person in that boot room, please wait outside the front door until one of our team members can bring you in and allow appropriate social
distancing.

-We are not currently allowing anybody in the office unless you have a scheduled appointment time. Please call or email the office if you would like to book an appointment or have questions about upcoming appointments,  treatment, or billing.

-All people entering the clinic must wear a mask as per the current mandate from the BC provincial health minister (August 25, 2021).

-Upon arrival for your scheduled appointment, we will go through a verbal COVID screening questionnaire, take your temperature, and have you use hand sanitizer before entering the waiting room or treatment areas.


Thank you for your continued patience as we navigate through the changing protocols, heavy workloads, and COVID limitations.

Sincerely,
