Since it was first launched in 2010, the photo and video-sharing social media platform Instagram has become so popular and relevant to a lot of people’s lives that it has given rise to a new standard when taking photos: “Is it Instagram-worthy?”.
The more “Instagram-worthy” your photos are, the more people follow you. But what makes a photo an Instagram-worthy one? It’s simple: perfection. “Instagram-worthy” simply means that your photos look perfect.
And because crooked, chipped, and yellow teeth do not fall under this category, it led to a new trend among influencers and followers alike: porcelain veneers.
So what are they and why are they becoming an Instagram trend?
They are just thin wafers of porcelain that are permanently bonded to the teeth to give it a new, more aesthetically pleasing look. They are meant to hide imperfections like chips, discoloration, and crookedness while looking perfectly the same as natural teeth.
They are fast becoming an Instagram trend because a lot of social media “influencers” (people who reach a wider audience than the average user) rely on the aesthetic value of not only the things they are promoting but themselves as well.
This only makes sense since they are not only promoting a product but they are also promoting themselves. And for them to make a good impression, they also have to look good – that includes a picture-perfect smile. And getting veneers is the best way to achieve that.
They’re not just for aesthetic reasons too. Getting them can help boost your self-confidence as well because they can fix many of the dental cosmetic issues that may be standing in the way to making you feel more beautiful and confident.
However, remember that it’s not just about being “Instagram-worthy” or having perfect photos, it’s about sharing the most beautiful events in our lives with not just our loved ones but with the world at large. It’s also one way to inspire people to take care of themselves holistically as well.
