There are just not enough hours in the day. With work and picking up the kids from school and making dinner and all that exercise you’re supposed to be doing to keep healthy, it can be difficult to put aside any time for necessary dental treatment. In fact, the only time you are able to attend a dental appointment may be your lunch break, but what treatment can you fit into one hour? Well, we’re going to tell you!

Teeth whitening

It’s one of the most popular cosmetic dentistry treatments around and for several good reasons. The treatment will take approximately one hour, the results are immediate and it will significantly improve the aesthetics of your smile. In fact, teeth whitening treatment can leave your teeth looking up to ten shades whiter. Tooth discolouration or teeth stains caused by coffee, tea or coke, in addition to the effects of smoking and the ageing process, will be markedly improved and you will be left with a smile that sparkles great dental health.

Dental check-up

It’s not only cosmetic dental treatment that you can fit into your lunch break. One of the most important aspects of dental health is keeping your teeth and gums in good shape, and thankfully a dental check-up with a scale and polish and examination of any potential underlying oral health concerns will take less than one hour. If there is something wrong then you can even get a white filling, dental crown or dental bridge placed during a few lunch break appointments.

It’s not only about the dental treatment

We all know how easy it is to pick the wrong thing to eat on your lunch break. More often than not it’s the easy option. But, if you want to keep your teeth and gums in good dental health and don’t want the results of teeth whitening to fade away too fast, you should stay away from the sweets, sodas and stain-causing curries. Instead, think about adding some cheese, crunchy vegetables and fruit to your lunch break, and then chew some sugar free gum to further promote good dental health.
