Orthodontist In Waynesville, Missouri Shares How Finding Beauty Is At Your Fingertips

Our award-winning Orthodontist In Waynesville, Missouri shares how finding beauty is at your fingertips with braces and Invisalign.

Somewhere along the way, we developed into a selfie-centric society. Instead of enjoying the moment, we spend our time taking photos before finding the one ultimately deemed suitable for public consumption. We twist our faces to make them thinner, crop the resulting images, and then apply a filter. We do this all in an attempt to look the way we think we’re supposed to look. As their “Selfie” video, Dove explores what happens when we reclaim the selfie as an expression of inner beauty rather than an opportunity for self-criticism.

What Is Beauty?

A group of high school girls and their mothers are talking to the camera. One girl is resisting her mother’s attempts to help her “enhance her features” through makeup, while another girl’s mother says, “I don’t like my age or my wrinkles… but there’s nothing I can do about it.” A girl with lovely, thick hair that’s held back in a braid says she never takes pictures with her hair down because it “looks bad.” It’s a catalog of criticisms that are both sad and familiar; we may be reluctant to compliment a picture of ourselves but somehow a put down is never far away.

A Show Of Support

Can we redefine what beauty is? Photographer Michael Crook seems to think so, and she’s challenging the ladies to a gallery show. The artwork? Their own selfies, unfiltered and unedited. In a world where some six out of every 10 girls say they feel prettier in the photos they post online than they do in real life, the idea of filter-less selfies can be downright scary. The girls enter the show with no shortage of fear. However, when they see their pictures, the images are covered with stick-on notes full of compliments. “Great hair!” “Beautiful smile!” It’s the real-life version of pressing the “like” button, and nobody had to twist their mouth into a “duckface” to get it.

When you strip everything away, maybe beauty isn’t the perfect nose or an expensive haircut but rather your courage or your big heart or your sense of humor. What could be more empowering than realizing that not only are you beautiful just the way you are but that you were actually beautiful all along?
