Have you ever left Facebook feeling bad about yourself? "Compare and despair" is a human trait, and it hasn't ever been more prevalent than in today's era of social media. Younger people are constantly taking selfies and comparing themselves to friends, influencers, and celebrities. "Snapchat Dysmorphia" describes a condition where patients desire cosmetic procedures to more closely resemble the filtered social media versions of themselves.

As cosmetic providers, we are seeing more and more direct composite veneers and black triangle closures, as young patients compare themselves to the images presented to them on social media. My new course on AACD CEntral shares several quick, predictable, and repeatable techniques to help you help your young patients feel more confident.
