WEBSTER, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/01/12 -- Dr. Ann Haggard and Dr. Marcus D. Haggard, two Houston dentists, have been providing service to local communities since 1968. At Designer Smiles, their Texas practice, they are committed to providing quality general and cosmetic care. As the year comes to an end and the winter season approaches, Designer Smiles encourages their patients to take advantage of the dental plans they have paid for all year long and rejuvenate their smiles in time for the holidays.

Dr. Marcus Haggard and Dr. Ann Haggard offer a full range of general dentistry options, including deep cleaning treatments that are required for good periodontal health. They believe regular general dental care and a daily, at-home dental hygiene regime provide a strong base for any healthy, aesthetically pleasing smile. Most dental plans cover general dental care procedures, and Designer Smiles suggests patients make appointments before the end of the year, when those benefits either expire or reset.

In addition to general dental care, Designer Smiles also specializes in the latest Houston cosmetic dentistry techniques and procedures, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, laser dentistry, dental implants, and tooth-colored fillings. Dr. Marcus Haggard and Dr. Ann Haggard say that benefits for these procedures will vary depending on a patient's insurance plan, and that patients should contact their individual carriers for coverage details. As the year comes to a close and people begin to prepare for the holidays, Dr. Marcus Haggard and Dr. Ann Haggard encourage patients to utilize their dental plans and go into the winter season with a healthy mouth while looking their best.
