2017 may be the year of teeth whitening. Google “DIY teeth whitening,” check out YouTube videos, or just take a walk down the oral hygiene aisle at your local pharmacy. The wide range of teeth whitening options available is astounding. From whitening toothpaste to gel and light acceleration kits for home use, there’s something for everyone. However, the bulk of the store bought and DIY teeth whitening products are minimally effective, but one of the most popular new methods – charcoal whitening – may actually work.

A misaligned smile can be detrimental to your confidence, not to mention your oral health. For those of you who never needed straightening treatment, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of you, we have good news. No longer do you have to endure the pain and longevity of traditional metal braces treatment. Introducing Invisalign – the latest and greatest in orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry treatment. You can straighten your teeth under the cloak of disguise with the system’s unique clear aligners. Nobody will ever know you’re receiving treatment unless you point it out. That’s what makes this treatment so beneficial – you can get great looking teeth invisibly! Our office in Bloomfield Hills, MI offers this specialized treatment. Cosmetic dentist, Dr. David Banda, can deliver your ideal smile in approximately six to eighteen months using Invisalign. Now that’s what we call a quick fix!
Invisalign – Tell Me More!
You want straight teeth for a more attractive smile, but you don’t want to sacrifice your image. We understand; especially when it comes to treatment for adults and teens. Nobody wants to walk around with metal inside their mouths. Though traditional braces treatment does deliver results, treatment is lengthier (depending on severity) and sometimes painful. For anyone that has ever worn traditional braces, you know of what we speak.
This is where Invisalign comes in handy. Not only can you get a beautiful smile in roughly six to eighteen months, you will also have some freedom as opposed to metal braces. For example, once braces are placed, they won’t be removed until treatment is completed. Of course, this all depends on several factors, but overall they won’t be removed. With Invisalign, you can remove them anytime you want. Got an important business meeting you’re holding? You can remove them before then replace them afterwards. That’s the beauty of Invisalign – it gives you the power. If you want to be able to enjoy all your favorite foods and straighten your teeth with comfortable plastic aligners, Invisalign is the way to go.
Why Invisalign? Misaligned Teeth Can Cause Problems
Not having straight teeth can be a bummer. Patients with misaligned teeth often shy away from smiling or hide their smiles completely. We don’t want this happening – your smile is something to be proud of, not embarrassed by. Misaligned teeth can come with a number of consequences:
- Stuck Food: When teeth are awkwardly aligned, food gets trapped even further between teeth, therefore making flossing a chore.
- Plaque accumulation: Everyday plaque builds up in your mouth, but improperly aligned teeth often increase the likelihood of plaque assembling in the mouth because the teeth arrangement makes teeth more difficult to clean.
- Improper Speech: Speech difficulties may transpire when teeth are misaligned. The tongue, lips and teeth must work cohesively in order to speak normally.
- Gum disease: Because of plaque accumulation, it can irritate soft and hard tissues, thus compromising the health of your gums and stability of the teeth within the jaw bone.

Working with Dr. Banda of Cranbrook Dental Care, you’ll be able to see the upcoming year with greater clarity.

For teens and adults who want straighter teeth without having to wear conventional braces, Dr. David Banda of Cranbrook Dental Care offers Invisalign clear braces. With Invisalign, our Bloomfield patients can have the straighter, more beautiful teeth they’ve dreamed of, but without the issues that patients with regular braces can face. That’s because Invisalign uses clear aligner trays instead of metal brackets and wires.
Every patient seeking treatment with Invisalign will receive a special treatment kit with all the aligners they’ll need to achieve results. As treatment progresses, all patients have to do is wear the appropriate set of aligners for about two weeks before moving on to the next. There’s nothing to tighten, and those around you may not even notice that you’re wearing braces.
But clear aligners aren’t the only benefit of Invisalign. The trays can also be taken out for eating, brushing, flossing, and more. That means that Dr. Banda’s Invisalign patients can enjoy the same kind of diet they always have. It also makes brushing and flossing easier. What’s more, when the brackets and wires of regular braces aren’t there, patients can actually keep their teeth cleaner, benefitting their oral health now and in the future.
But Invisalign isn’t the best option for every patient. Do you have questions about Invisalign? Talk to Dr. Banda of Bloomfield, MI. During a consultation at Cranbrook Dental Care, we can assess your needs and made a personalized recommendation.
We serve patients from Bloomfield, Bloomfield Hills, Troy, Birmingham, and beyond.
