Get Ready For Your Best Selfie Ever With Cosmetic Dentistry From Dodds Dental!
Today, selfies are one of the most common types of photographs taken – and if you want to look your best in your next selfie, Dodds Dental is here to help! Here are just a few of our cosmetic services:
- Teeth whitening – Teeth whitening uses powerful peroxides to destroy surface stains on your teeth, and provide you with a bright, white smile. It’s affordable and non-invasive, and we offer both in-office whitening and take-home trays so you can get treatment on your own schedule.
- Porcelain veneers – Porcelain veneers are tiny shells of porcelain which fit around your teeth and can correct almost any cosmetic issue, ranging from staining to chipped teeth, gaps, and much more. The process of getting veneers usually only takes two short appointments, and allows you to restore your smile quickly.
- Bonding and reshaping – Dental bonding uses a special type of dental resin to reshape your teeth and provide you with a better smile. Reshaping allows Dr. Emily or Dr. Dustin to correct and straighten your teeth. Bonding is affordable, doesn’t require surgery, and often takes just a single appointment.
- Invisalign – Invisalign is a great way to correct your smile and straighten your teeth without wearing braces. Invisalign only takes about one year, so your new smile will be ready just in time for next year’s National Selfie Day!
The History Of National Selfie Day: Where Did It Come From?
National Selfie Day has been celebrated since 2014, when DJ Rick McNeely established a day for the celebration of the now-ubiquitous “selfie.” This came only one year after The Oxford English Dictionary made “selfie” the word of the year in 2013. The word “selfie“ was first used in September 2002.
Thanks to smartphones and digital photography, we take more selfies now than ever. It may seem like the selfie is a millennial invention, but selfies are actually almost two centuries old! The first ever photographic self-portrait was taken in 1839 by a man named Robert Cornelius.
As cameras and film became more affordable, amateur photography became more widespread. Combined with the growth of digital photography and the influence of the internet, this has created the selfies we know and share daily.
