What is Zoom face and should you care?
Believe it or not, the phrase ‘Zoom Face’ is one of the newest buzz terms that has emerged in cosmetic dentistry because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Recently, given concerns over Zoom Face, cosmetic dental treatments has seen a great rise in demand than ever before.Most of us have encountered lifestyle shifts due to the pandemic being isolated while in lock down and coping with the transition to working from home.
This has seen a phenomenal increase in on-line presence.
The year 2020 has bought us some anxiety and fears associated with our health and well-being. By the same token, it has also made us made us more self-conscious than ever before.
Dubbed one of the newest buzz words, Zoom Face also explains why patients are starting to look at ways to enhance how their face and smile look when they Zoom.
The new reality of working from home has resulted in the creation of makeshift workspaces, a spike in office chair sales, and many people spending hours upon hours on virtual conference calls and as a result, discovering every imperfection about their face.
It seems seeing ourselves through the unforgiving laptop lense, has led to a global demand in cosmetic procedures, including cosmetic dentistry.
Changing imperfections such as teeth discolouration, chipped or crooked teeth, and gaps are now making a resurgence since one’s smile is about the first feature people notice about a person when they start to speak on a conference call.
At Robina Quays Dental Care we understand that our patients can feel self-conscious about their smile or teeth and their overall looks. However, we encourage an inside to outside approach.
That is, we believe true beauty is not in the eyes of the beholder but lies deep within an individual.
From such beauty one develops a real sense of confidence and self-worth.Based on this foundation for their confidence, we hope our patients will feel comfortable to interact in person or on Zoom with anyone they need to.
However, if our patients wish to enhance their smile and appearance to optimise on their Zoom calls we are here to help.So our take on “Zoom Face” is a face that emanates with confidence from within with the dignity of the option to represent that visually.
If you wish to enhance your smile and appearance so as to amplify your confidence, then we provide you with an array of options according to your need and budget.Here are some options to consider:
Dental bridges are a natural-looking solution to missing teeth.
As the word bridge implies, dental bridges bridge the gap between any of your missing teeth. This fixed restoration is achieved by joining an artificial tooth to your existing teeth or dental implants to close the gap or gaps.
Your bridge will cover the whole area where teeth are missing.
Therefore, dental bridges do more than restore your smile.
When done well, a dental bridge helps restore your ability to properly chew, speak, maintain your face shape, distribute your bite correctly as well as prevent your remaining teeth from drifting out of position.
Dental Crowns, otherwise known as tooth caps, are a simple solution if you have chipped or damaged a tooth or want to improve the aesthetic appeal of your smile. The purpose of dental crowns is to help restore and protect your teeth while creating a beautiful, natural-looking smile.
This also includes restoring a tooth’s size, shape and appearance. A dental crown is a tooth-shaped, custom-made ‘cap’ that is placed over a tooth, either for protection or cosmetic enhancement.
Dental veneers also referred to as porcelain veneers or dental porcelains are simply a thin covering placed on a patient’s existing teeth. This covering is made out of porcelain; hence the term porcelain veneers.
With advancements in dental technology, ultra-thin veneers measuring 1mm – 0.3mm is now possible.
With correct colour matching, the results can almost instantaneously transform the appearance of the patient’s smile. As such, it’s one of the most popular dental procedures.
Dental veneers are specifically tailored to each patient’s teeth. Therefore, the thickness of the veneer depends on a host of factors varying with each patient’s tooth formation and specific needs.
Porcelain veneers are an excellent option for patients who would like to correct discolouration of their teeth, especially heavy stains that do not lighten even with professional tooth whitening.
You may wish to bring back your dazzling smile with a teeth whitening treatment that lightens your natural teeth colour by breaking down discolouration and stains.
Because every smile is different, teeth whitening is not suitable for everybody; and you may first need additional dental work to address existing dental concerns.
From porcelain veneers to tooth-coloured fillings, you can choose from a variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions to enhance your smile.
