Cosmetic Dentistry is all about giving you the smile of your dreams. That’s why we specialize in smile makeovers ar Williams Lake Smiles. The first step in getting your smile makeover is meeting with Dr. Wassenaar and telling him what you’re looking for. That way, he can develop a strategy to create the smile you want.

Making your smile look as good as possible means improving the parts of your smile that you’re dissatisfied with. Your smile makeover will be designed by Dr. Wassenaar to improve one or more of the following features of your teeth: shape, size, condition, color, position, or alignment.

Two common smile restoration techniques that are often part of a smile makeover are veneers and composite bonding. Of course, these are only a couple of the cosmetic services we provide. It’s best to meet with Dr. Wassenaar to get a complete picture of all your smile makeover options.

Veneers

Veneers are thin layers or “shells” that Dr. Wassenaar bonds to the front of your teeth using special dental adhesive. Veneers are custom-crafted to seamlessly match the color and shape of your smile. Veneers can restore smiles with the following issues:

  • Chipped teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Teeth with uneven surfaces (craters or bulges)
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Severely stained teeth that resist whitening treatment
  • Broken or worn down teeth

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is another cosmetic treatment offered by Dr. Wassenaar to enhance your smile. Bonding is a technique that uses composite resin to treat chipped, gapped or irregularly-shaped teeth. This procedure can often be performed in just one dental office visit.

Here’s how composite bonding works: First, Dr. Wassenaar will select the perfect shade to match the color of your teeth. Then he will slightly etch the surface of the tooth and coat it with a conditioning liquid. This will help the bonding adhere to the tooth. Next, Dr. Wassenaar will apply the resin, which has the consistency of putty. The resin will then be hardened using ultraviolet light and you’ll be good to go.

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
