Is the “Zoom Boom” giving you concerns about your smile?
Many of us are happy with the appearance of our smile for years until something makes us reevaluate it. Sometimes this can be brought to our attention by newer photos where we notice our smile has aged or isn’t as bright and white as it used to be. Sometimes an innocent, but honest, comment from a child or grandchild can trigger this awareness of teeth that are worn down, yellowed, or not as attractive as you remembered. During this unprecedented time, a lot of people are reevaluating their smile now thanks to the proliferation of online video meetings via Zoom, Skype, Telehealth and other conferencing software. Dubbed the “Zoom boom,” some have claimed this is the result of people spending more time looking at their appearance during the abundance of virtual meetings with family, friends, and coworkers.
