Selfies & Smiles


Is the rise of the selfie leading to more self-consciousness about our smile? According to a new article by The Guardian, selfie culture has prompted more dental visits in the last five years.

In case you didn’t know, a selfie (Oxford English Dictionary’s 2013 Word of the Year) is a self-portrait usually taken with a phone. Its usage has become so popular that it was even added to the recent Scrabble dictionary.


Many people discover that they are unhappy about their smile when they see photos of themselves. The most common concerns are discolored teeth, crooked teeth, chipped teeth, and missing teeth. Fortunately, most of the time these concerns are easily corrected and the result is a huge boost in confidence.
