Beautiful Smiles by Dr. Wassenaar

Aside from having healthy, functional teeth, we also want to have an attractive smile. Here at Williams Lake Smiles, we can help you achieve the beautiful smile you have always wanted through various modern cosmetic dentistry procedures. You can now greatly improve your smile with our quick, affordable, and painless procedures!



  • 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


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.


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.


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.


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,

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
