Some people escape the world through books and movies, while others escape through the internet or watching sports. You prefer to get out and actually play sports. Work is stressful and can be full of loud noises as it is, so you prefer one of the more laid back athletic pursuits: golf. There are not many sports where you can go at your own pace and still win. Half the appeal is that you really are on your own schedule. You see a number of people doing the same thing, and you immediately feel camaraderie with them. Whether you’re having a really good or really bad game, you’ll probably get to talk with them a bit. This makes you more anxious than a strong headwind, mostly because you feel your smile is lacking. Many people do business on this course, so they’re immaculate from head to toe. You just want to relax, but your eyes are always drawn to their inevitably sparkling white teeth. How did they get them so bright? The cosmetic dentist in Deer Park has the answers. (more…)

As a cosmetic dentist in Deer Park, we want to see you and your family have beautiful, healthy smiles. While oral hygiene and regular visits to your Deer Park dentist are vital to your family’s healthy, beautiful smiles, there’s another aspect that is often overlooked. In addition to hygiene, you need to protect teeth from damage. This involves more than just oral hygiene and eating a balanced diet. You need to protect teeth with a mouthguard if you suffer from bruxism or if you have children who play sports. Bruxism and athletic injuries can cause serious damage to the teeth. Therefore, if you suffer from teeth grinding, you need a mouthguard to protect your smile, just as children need athletic mouthguards to protect their teeth.
