Cosmetic dentistry is all about giving you the smile of your dreams. That’s why we specialize in smile makeovers at 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. That’s why 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 cements to the front of your teeth. 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 an ultraviolet and you’ll be good to go.

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:

-Please do not arrive early for your appointment time as we may not be able to accommodate you in our waiting room area. We are doing our best to limit your contact with others during your time in our clinic. If we are running ahead of schedule, we will call you to come in sooner.

-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,

Dr. Rudy Wassenaar and the team at Williams Lake Smiles
