With the holidays looming just around the corner, you’re probably wondering where the year has gone. That’s if you have enough time to think in between balancing end-of-year work projects, Christmas shopping, office parties and family get-togethers.
With so much going on, it can be hard to find the time to treat yourself to some well-deserved and perhaps much needed cosmetic rejuvenation. That’s why we’ve done our research to bring you a list of fast cosmetic treatments that will freshen up your face and reverse the effects of ageing and sun damage that you can do in your lunch break.
A brighter, whiter smile
You’re never fully dressed without a smile! If a few too many morning coffees (or evening red wines) have you feeling less than confident in your otherwise pearly whites, a quick trip to the dentist in your lunch hour can easily restore them to their former glory.
Your dentist can perform in-chair whitening within a couple of hours using high strength peroxide gel and a special ultraviolet light to lift deep stains in your enamel. Throughout a one hour lunchtime visit, the gel is applied a few times, helping to whiten teeth easily and painlessly.
If going during lunch is a little too difficult, you apply your own customised fast cosmetic treatments at-home teeth whitening kits, achieving similar results over the course of a few weeks in the privacy of your own home. Just be sure to stay well away from over-the-counter bleaching kits which are less effective, take longer, and can damage your sensitive gums, costing you more in the long run overall.
Greater gums for a good-looking you
It’s not just your teeth that can see fast cosmetic treatments that offer results, because the very thing holding your teeth can be improved over lunch, too.
One way to help revitalise that smile of yours in no time is through a gingivectomy, also known as “gum lifting”. Usually performed while you’re getting a crown or veneer, gum lifting is designed to lift and reshape the gum tissue around your teeth, helping to make a more symmetrical smile in line with how your teeth look, rather than the gummy smile we can get over time throughout the course of our life.
Made to be quick, gum-lifting is another one of the many fast cosmetic treatments a dentist can offer to get your smile right on track with thinking.
Fast cosmetic treatments for your face
After long days at the beach, late nights filled with laughter and smiles, shopping mall car-park stress, and over-indulgence on less than healthy foods, a full and enjoyable holiday season will likely leave your skin looking a little worse for wear.
If you’re looking for a quick and non-invasive treatment that can take care of wrinkles or restore fullness to sagging skin, look no further than your local dentist. Once reserved for problems of the jaw, dental professionals are the best in the business for identifying the muscles on your face to apply fast cosmetic treatments to, and all in the space of your lunch break.
The results can last for up to 12 months as the natural filler is reabsorbed safely into your body, or you can choose to regularly come in and touch them up with more fast cosmetic treatments.
Next time you’re in the chair, ask your dentist what fast cosmetic treatments they offer and what they can recommend for you.
