Veneers and Dental Bonding

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.

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". This interview outlines a lot of what we are doing to make sure that our patients have the utmost confidence and comfort in visiting Williams Lake Smiles at all times.
