How the pandemic has affected what we think about our smiles

New survey data collected by the Oral Health Foundation and Align Technology highlights the profound impact of the pandemic on the way UK adults view their smiles.

More than half (58%) of respondents said that they have changed the way they see their smile as a result of online video calls, with one-in-ten (11%) feeling self-conscious seeing their smile on screen. Many of us have seen our own face far more than we are used to in recent months.

Nearly two-in-three (58%) of UK adults believe that covering the smile with face masks during the pandemic has had a detrimental effect on forming connections with each other.

However, as the government starts to ease restrictions (fingers crossed!) and we come out of the pandemic, many of us are finding more reasons to smile again.

Next time you come into the practice for a regular check – or if you have recently joined us as a new patient – please ask any questions you have about how we might be able to help you achieve and maintain a healthy, beautiful smile.
