Real Beauty & Our Award-Winning Lebanon Orthodontist: How One Sketch Can Make You Smile

How do you see yourself? Using little more than a pencil, a pad of paper, and a handful of strangers, Dove’s “Real Beauty Sketches” tackles the hot topics of body image and self-esteem. Most of all, get results that are as unexpected as they are inspiring. Our award-winning Lebanon orthodontist shares how one sketch can make you smile.

Our Own Worst Critic

If someone asked you what you like about yourself, how easy would it be to answer? It’s generally not considered polite to brag, so instead we pick ourselves apart. When Dove brought in a forensic composite artist to sketch a few unsuspecting volunteers, that deep-seated desire to put ourselves down quickly became apparent. Each volunteer, separated from the artist by a curtain, was asked to describe their physical appearance. They said words like “fat” and “protrudes.” Their shoulders were slumped, their expressions pained. Their discomfort and sadness resonated.

Education Through the Eyes of Others

Then comes the twist. The women, complete strangers, are asked to describe each other to the sketch artist. This time we hear words like “thin” and “expressive” and “cute.” The women are far more generous and kind to the strangers than they are to themselves. The two portraits are then hung side by side, the self-described image a sad, withered version of the smiling picture to its right. As each woman looks at the two contrasting interpretations of herself, you can practically see the awareness dawning.

The Power of Self-Acceptance

We tend to see ourselves through a sort of funhouse mirror that magnifies the things we don’t like about our appearance until those things are all that we can see. What if we could step away from the harsh prison of our own self-doubt and see ourselves as the world sees us? Could we redefine what beauty is by simply accepting what’s innately beautiful about ourselves? What if we could be grateful for what we have and finally accept that we deserve the lives that we get to live? Finally, what if we finally realized that we’re more beautiful than we think?

Learning to love who we are, inside and out, is the very foundation of happiness. Few things shout “happy” better than a big, confident grin. If your idea of a more confident you includes a straighter smile, call Stryker Orthodontics today. We’d love to schedule a free consultation at our orthodontic office today. Call 417.532.9532 to schedule your appointment today!
