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-19 (Corona) Virus

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

We hope this finds all our patients and friends healthy and well as summer is supposed to be arriving! Fingers crossed that we will see some sunshine in the Cariboo soon!

Our clinic staff have been working hard through this "new normal" of COVID-19 and ensuring that our clinic is exceeding the regulations to create the most safe and comfortable environment for all our patients. In the field of dentistry, we have always been experts in infection control. Now we are establishing a modified workflow to go above and beyond in this endeavor.

We are starting to resume some scheduling of more routine procedures as well as emergency care at this time. Please feel free to contact our office if you have any questions about our current protocols or would like to schedule care.

Please respect our measures we are taking to ensure physical distancing within our office. This includes completing the COVID-19 prescreening form that is emailed to you before each appointment. We are also continuing to limit our waiting room to one person at a time and having patients complete payments and scheduling in their treatment room before exiting through the side door. This allows us to prevent interaction between patients whenever possible.

You may also find that we are slightly less flexible in our available appointment times for now as we are managing these new measures. We need to consider the amount of patients within our clinic at any time as well as stagger our patient entry and exit times.

Please be patient and kind as we all adjust to this protocol that is in place for the safety of all of us.

Take a few minutes to watch and share our latest instalment of Dr Wassenaar's appearance on the television program "The Wellness Hour".
