The popularity of Zoom, FaceTime, Microsoft Teams and the like has skyrocketed during the Covid-19 pandemic and we have all had to get used to seeing ourselves online more often than we used to, say the orthodontists at Aberdeen Orthodontics.

Our appearances have come in for greater scrutiny recently, not least because the hairdressers, beauty salons and nail bars had to shut up shop for so many weeks. Most of us are not used to seeing ourselves chatting, laughing, snacking or listening – and certainly not digitally.

Yes, we may look in a mirror when brushing our teeth, putting on make-up or doing our hair but not when we are captured behaving naturally on a screen. And this has led some people to reconsider how they feel about their teeth. 

Before Covid, our specialists orthodontists, Richard Buckle and Johann Bell, found that patients would say they hated having their photo taken or always smiled with their mouths closed to avoid showing their crooked teeth.

Now, our George Street orthodontic specialists say it’s more about people hating looking at themselves on a screen and choosing to do something about it by researching how to get their teeth straightened.
