Want to be smile perfect for your next virtual meeting? Try this.
As COVID-19 has been a catalyst for perpetual Zoom fatigue, many patients are left grappling with how to put their best smile forward in this new virtual reality. In this remote work environment, it’s natural to feel self-conscious about putting your smile on display every day. Maybe you’ve noticed your smile doesn’t really shine, or maybe it stands out – but not in a good way. Our critical judgements of our physical appearance are deeply connected to self-confidence. When we project an aura of self-assurance, success both in our personal lives and professional lives, becomes a breeze because we have a restored faith in our abilities.
In fact, studies suggest that when you’re proud of your smile, you naturally exude a professionally poised and composed demeanor, and ultimately present a powerful first impression. The Crest Foundation reported that people with straight teeth are perceived as happy, healthy and trustworthy. When we can’t make observations based on body language, the power of facial expressions takes center stage – making or breaking our ability to land that coveted job offer, show up strongly in a virtual new business pitch, get a second date, or win game night with friends and family.
Despite what you may believe, a beautiful smile is possible at any age, and in many cases, improves the health of your teeth and gums. In fact, aligned teeth are easier to clean, floss, and ultimately prevent subsequent health issues. Untreated orthodontic issues can lead to more serious, and more expensive, problems in the future.
Through our new virtual smile assessments, it’s easier than ever to pave the best path forward to the beautiful smile you deserve. We always meet our patients where they are with flexible financing options to address their unique needs. Additionally, the fear that some patients feel when it comes to going out in public amid orthodontic treatment is almost completely eliminated with mask wearing mandates – there couldn’t be a more perfect time to invest in yourself, and your smile.
One of my favorite aspects of orthodontics is watching our patients’ confidence blossom as they witness a progressive transformation in their teeth. We want to see you beaming during your virtual meetings, unafraid to put your best smile forward – both today and in the future.
