The year 2020 introduced many of us to some new concepts that we may not have been aware of in years prior. One of which was the web-based meeting. Hosted on popular meeting platforms such as Zoom and Skype, more people than ever are attending virtual meetings in lieu of in-person meetings.

But while these web-based meetings are safer than in-person meetings, they have created their own phenomena that have left a lot of people surprised.

It’s called the “Zoom boom” and it started because many people are getting a closer look at their appearance than ever before.

It’s safe to say most of us glance at our appearance in the mirror from time to time – albeit probably not for hours at a time. But with meetings on platforms like Zoom, we are often left staring at ourselves for lengthy periods of time. That leaves a lot of time for us to examine our appearance, and critique it.

One area of our appearance that we may be especially critical of is our smile. If our teeth don’t look their best, it can be very detrimental to our self-esteem. It can even harm our careers, as we may be less likely to smile or speak up during a meeting if we are insecure about our teeth.

Thus, many people are turning to cosmetic dentistry to fix their smiles so they don’t have to feel insecure during their web meetings. It’s called the “zoom boom,” because of the boom in cosmetic dentistry these meetings are causing.

Procedures like professional whitening, veneers, orthodontics, and even dental implants and fillings are increasing in popularity during quarantine because many people want their smiles to look their very best during web meetings.
