The orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry fields have come a long way even in the last five years. What was in back in the day is nothing more than a memory today. We’re in the business of straightening teeth and are always keeping our ears and eyes out for the latest techniques and procedures. One of the most advanced orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry treatments available today is the unique Invisalign system. It’s taken the dental industry by storm as more and more people are ditching metal braces and opting for this fantastic treatment. It’s the preferred teeth-straightening procedure for teens and adults, so you know you’re in great company. Deciding whether or not Invisalign is right for you isn’t a quick process, but if you’re eligible for treatment, there are some things you need to know before choosing Invisalign. At Robison Dental Group in Canton, MI, we want you to know ahead of time what treatment will involve, and how best to prepare.
Invisalign – Yay or Nay?
“Is Invisalign right for me?” It’s what countless patients ask themselves. Though it has become one of the most preferred ways to straighten teeth, it isn’t right for everyone. Why? Usually, the main culprit is a patient’s bite. It’s important to note that Invisalign is used for cosmetic purposes. If you have a bite that’s causing problems, Invisalign may not be compatible with your situation. Our cosmetic dentist will know the answer for sure once your mouth is thoroughly inspected.
It isn’t just bite problems that can derail the possibility of receiving Invisalign treatment. A lot of patients discover that there is a lot of upkeep and responsibility falls solely on their shoulders. Yes, it offers many beneficial alternatives over traditional metal braces, but unlike braces, you have the power to straighten whenever you want. How much time you spend receiving treatment is entirely up to you and how closely you’re following your regimen.
Below are some tips to consider before discussing Invisalign treatment with us:
1. Prepare to wear your aligners for a prolonged period of time. You must be able to commit to 22 hours of wear and changing aligners every two weeks.
2. Embrace that strange, straightening feeling. Your teeth are shifting, which is a good thing. You may experience some tooth sensitivity and pain at first, but it should go away after a couple days.
3. Perfect your brushing and flossing regimen. Trays can be a breeding ground for bacteria to grow, so brushing and flossing is vital.
4. Avoid sugary foods and drinks like the plague. We all know the horror sugary treats can cause to your teeth, but if any sugar content is left behind in your trays, it can stain your teeth.
Remember, the pace of your treatment and its success is dependent on you. By being proactive in your treatment, you’ll see results that will leave you breathless.

- Genetic defect
- Congenital diseases
- Environmental factors
- Metabolic diseases
- Prescription drugs and medications

Why Choose Teeth Whitening from Robison Dental?
Teeth whitening, by definition, is a process through which teeth appear whiter. Although this is a simple definition, the actual teeth whitening process is not so simple. Most teeth whitening products fall into one of two categories; bleaching products which contain peroxides that actually remove deep staining and change the color of the enamel, and non-bleaching whitening products which contain mild abrasives that remove surface stains only. Teeth whitening toothpastes fall into the latter category, and cannot effectively whiten discolored enamel. Most over- the-counter teeth whitening products do contain bleaching agents; however, they are heavily diluted. Therefore it can take several weeks of daily use before you will be able to seen any significant change in the color of your teeth. Your best option is to make a teeth whitening appointment with Dr. Robison. Dr. Robison offers fast and professional in-office teeth whitening, and easy to use take-home teeth whitening with custom fitted whitening trays. Either option will get your teeth several shades whiter in a fraction of the time it would take with any DIY product. In addition, Dr. Robison can ensure that your teeth and gums stay healthy and are not irritated by your whitening treatment.
No matter the cause of your tooth discoloration, teaming up with Dr. Robison is the most reliable option for getting the teeth whitening results you want. Dr. Robison will ensure that you understand how the teeth whitening process actually works, and fully treat any sensitivity issues that may arise. Make your teeth whitening appointment with Dr. Robison today. Robison Dental Group proudly serves patients of all ages throughout Canton, MI, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, Plymouth, and nearby areas.

Having a smile you feel as though you are merely settling for can be very detrimental to your self-esteem. Because many people think of a smile as a first impression, but being able to feel confident in your smile and in the way you look can affect the way you view yourself as well as the way you interact with the people around you. Whether your teeth are gapped, misaligned, stained, or chipped, it can be difficult being as outgoing as you would like, and you may feel as though there is nothing you can do in order to rectify your smile. Fortunately, Dr. J.D. Robison is able to give you the smile you have always wanted by offering porcelain veneers at his Canton, MI dental office.
One of the reasons why many patients choose porcelain veneers is because they are able to cover up many blemishes in your smile. Being able to cover up years of wear and tear on your smile, porcelain veneers are an excellent way to achieve the smile you have always wanted.
The first step to your porcelain veneers is a consultation with Dr. Robison. There, he will be able to assess your smile in its current state, discuss your smile goals, and go over how you will want your new smile to look. You will also have that time to bring up any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure, allowing you to be as knowledgeable and comfortable throughout this entire process as possible. Dr. Robison will make impressions of your smile, and send them to a dental lab to have your veneers made. With this, we are able to keep your facial features in mind, making sure your smile transformation is as natural-looking as possible. Your natural tooth is prepared by removing a small bit of enamel, ensuring space in your mouth for your new smile. When your veneers are ready, they will be placed and made permanent with dental resin cement. At the end of the procedure, you are left with a gorgeous smile that everyone will envy! If you would like Dr. Robison’s help rejuvenating your smile using porcelain veneers, contact our office today!

At some point, our smiles will experience some amount of staining. Popular beverages like coffee, tea, red wine, fruit juice, soda, and more can all cause stained or discolored teeth. Tobacco use can also contribute, and even aging itself.
But thankfully, you don’t have to live with staining. At Robison Dental Group, we offer teeth whitening to help you reduce the appearance of staining and restore the dazzling smile you once had. Specifically, our Canton office offers two types of teeth whitening for our patients to choose from: in-office teeth whitening and take-home teeth whitening.
In-office teeth whitening gives you fast results. If you end up choosing this option, all you have to do is sit back and relax while our Canton team whitens your teeth several shades over the course of a single visit. In-office teeth whitening is a good choice for patients who need fast results for an upcoming event, like a wedding, a graduation, a family event, or a job search.
This option isn’t right for everyone, though. For some patients, in-office teeth whitening causes sensitivity. In those cases, we might recommend a take-home teeth whitening kit. Take-home teeth whitening includes a set of bleaching trays, plus a supply of professional whitening gel. Over the course of a few days, you can whiten your teeth at home doing simple, everyday things, like reading, watching TV, or doing household chores. The process is comfortable, convenient, and delivers great results.

A healthy smile is important, but so is a beautiful smile. Not only can you brighten a friend or family member’s day with one, but it can also be an asset in the business and dating world.
Unfortunately, not everyone has naturally dazzling teeth. Thankfully, with a cosmetic dentistry service like porcelain veneers from Robison Dental Group, it’s possible to achieve exactly what you’re looking for, and in a way that looks natural.
Porcelain veneers use very thin pieces of dental porcelain to hide a range of flaws, including, stains, cracks, chips, and misalignment. Through a consultation with Dr. John R. Robison or Dr. J.D. Robison, we can assess what your exact needs are and talk to you about your smile goals. Then, based on that conversation, our Canton dental team can start designing your veneers and prepping your teeth. To make porcelain veneers lie flat a small amount of enamel is removed from the front of teeth.
Using the information Dr. John Robison or Dr. J.D. Robison collects from your first appointment our lab will create a full, customized set of veneers for you. When they’re ready, you’ll come back to Robison Dental Group in Canton to have them fixed in place, completing your cosmetic treatment.
Do you want to know how your smile can benefit from porcelain veneers? Our team at Robison Dental Group can help. Call us today for a consultation. During your visit, we’ll assess your needs and explain all your options. We offer exceptional cosmetic care to patients from Canton, Ann Arbor, Northville, Westland, and Plymouth.
