Did Zoom Meetings Make You Unhappy with Your Smile?

Posted in Cosmetic Dentistry, Smile Makeover, Teeth Whitening

It’s no secret that today’s world has migrated to the internet to replace many traditional “face-to-face” business operations. In particular, video conferencing software (Zoom, Hangouts, Microsoft Teams, Skype, etc.) has become a standard practice that few have been able to hide from, especially considering the pandemic drove virtually everything online temporarily.

While this innovation has saved countless organizations and changed the world’s business landscape in previously unthinkable ways, the reality is that seeing your own face while talking to your work colleagues can foster some negative feelings towards aspects of your appearance, including your smile.

Below, we explain why we think online video calling has made many people unhappy with their teeth and offer a solution for those who want to achieve a “simply natural, simply radiant” smile that will look amazing both on and off camera.

How Zoom Meetings Showcase Our Teeth – For Better or for Worse

When on video conference meetings, people are confronted with a real-time image of themselves speaking, laughing, talking, etc. You’re watching others, and others are watching you unrelentingly. This interaction is unnatural and far different than our standard modes of communication.

As one Forbes author states about the awkwardness of video calls, “It’s a performance unlike any other human interaction, live or on the phone.”

Unsurprisingly, this phenomenon has prompted many to feel self-conscious with the appearance of their teeth. Whether you are forced to compare your smile with your coworkers’ pearly whites, or you are seeing your dental issues (old fillings, missing teeth, discolored teeth, etc.) from a new angle, video calling confronts you with an image of your smile from the perspective of others.

Fortunately, partnering with the right dental provider means you can attain a smile you can be proud of.
