Uniquely Me Two

On Sunday March 14, 2010, the Girl Scouts of the Sierra Nevada taught the power of positive thinking and confidence to girls K-12.  Uniquely Me Two stressed the importance recognizing one’s strengths and best attributes, handling peer pressure, healthy eating habits, hygiene, general wellness, exercise, and identifying core values and personal interests.

Tonya, Tami, Kori, Jillian, Sierra, and Candy all worked the PITTS I LOVE MY SMILE! booth. About 150 girls spun the wheel and answer a few questions about their smile or their friend’s smile. After answering we gave them a goodie bag with a mirror, chap stick and inspirational quote inside.  Thank you to all who participated and congratulations to our contest winners.

The ‘Bracelift’ Facelift

DENTAL CARE THAT DOES MORE THAN STRAIGHTEN TEETH

BY THOMAS R. PITTS, D.D.S.

Before and After a Damon 'Bracelift'

AS WE GROW OLDER, MANY Of us turn to expensive and invasive cosmetic treatments ranging from lip augmentations to facelifts in an effort to retain a youthful appearance.More and more adults, however, are now turning to less traumatic orthodontic treatments as an anti-aging tool and are gaining not just a beautiful smile, but some remarkable facial aesthetics, as well.“Bracelift” treatments can help you look younger and feel more confident about your appearance than ever before. Of course,most people want a nice smile with straight, white teeth, but properly aligned teeth can do much more than just improve a smile. By enhancing the alignment and widening the arch of the teeth, orthodontic treatment can create better facial balance and aesthetics, lending the appearance of fuller cheeks and lips, smoother and higher cheek contours, and broader smiles, as well as compensate for the inevitable loss of facial muscle over time.
