Invisalign aligner


Crooked teeth can affect the health and beauty of your smile. In the past, a dentist's main option for treating malocclusion was braces.

Today, tooth misalignment can be treated with Invisalign®, an invisible, comfortable alternative to traditional orthodontics.

Find out how the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute in Troy, MI, can straighten your teeth.

Invisalign Treatment An Overview

From our office in Troy, Dr. Craig Goldin provides Invisalign® invisible braces to patients who live all around the Detroit metro area. Invisalign® is an incredible solution to straighten patients’ teeth without the hassle and unattractiveness of traditional metal braces. 

How Invisalign Works An Invisible Alternative to Braces

Invisalign treatment is simple and effective. Here is a basic overview of how the procedure works and why patients prefer it to the braces of the past.

Aligners Instead of Wires

Rather than the brackets and wires of braces, Invisalign uses clear aligners made from durable plastic. These aligners apply controlled tension to shift teeth into a more ideal position.

Trays Worn Most of the Day

Patients wear aligners all day except for when they eat, drink beverages other than cold water, and when they brush and floss. That means the trays are in more than 20 hours a day.

New Aligner Every Two Weeks

After wearing an aligner for two weeks, patients discard that tray and switch to the next one in the sequence. This is repeated over the course of several months until treatment is over.

The Benefits of Invisalign Why People Want Invisible Orthodontics

There are many benefits to Invisalign treatment. Just why are more and more patients asking about Invisalign for their orthodontic care needs?

Invisalign Aligners Are Discreet

The clear aligners are difficult to notice, even when people are up close. That makes Invisalign ideal for those of us who want an inconspicuous orthodontic treatment.

Aligner Trays Are Safe

The clear aligners are sturdy and will not cut or poke at the insides of your mouth. They are made from a smooth, BPA-free plastic molded to fit onto your teeth.

Trays Are Easy to Remove

Invisalign trays are removable. Patients can still enjoy their favorite foods, and won't struggle to properly brush and floss their teeth during the treatment process.

Caring for Trays Is Simple

Cleaning Invisalign aligners is simple. Patients can simply brush the aligners clean with a soft-bristled toothbrush to prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath.

Aligners Are More Comfortable Than Braces

The brackets and wires of braces can scrape and irritate the insides of the lips and cheeks. Invisalign trays are smooth, and are consequently much more comfortable to wear.

My son needed major dental work and as a mom I knew after meeting with Dr. Goldin and Robbie and the rest of the staff that my son was in the best hands possible. Eight hours of surgery and I had not one worry and the end result was absolute perfection. Im not sure what is more beautiful: my sons teeth or the entire staff responsible. I've never met a more loving and caring group of people. Thank you Cosmetic Dentistry... You truly are the best!

Invisalign treatment is great for people who have teeth that are crooked. Misalignment of the dental arch or the jaw position can be treated using other orthodontic procedures.

You're in Good Health

Apart from tooth misalignment, patients should be in otherwise good dental health. If you suffer from other dental problems, those may be treated before you undergo Invisalign.

The Invisalign Treatment Process A Patient Timeline

Overall treatment time for Invisalign can range from several months to a year depending on the needs of the patient. We'll provide a personal treatment timeline during your initial consultation at our Troy, MI, dental practice. This general timeline offers patients an idea of what the treatment process will be like.
Invisalign is able to treat the same kinds of malocclusion and misalignment as traditional braces.

Initial Consultation

Invisalign is able to treat the same kinds of malocclusion and misalignment as traditional braces.

Assessing Candidacy

At your initial visit, we'll take digital x-rays, examine your teeth, go over dental records, and discuss your smile. From this, we can determine if Invisalign is right for you.

Planning Treatment

Using advanced technology, we will use the current position of your teeth to create a custom treatment plan. You'll be able to see how your teeth will be gradually straightened.

Creating the Aligners

From the treatment plan, your entire set of custom clear aligners are crafted. Each individual aligner tray is designed for the appropriate week of the treatment process.

Wearing Your Aligners

Patients will wear their Invisalign aligners in the proper sequence for two weeks at a time. Every two weeks, patients will discard the current aligner and switch to the next one.

Ongoing Dental Check-Ups

Patients will return to our Troy, MI, practice periodically during Invisalign treatment. These short visits will allow our dentists to monitor progress and make any adjustments.

Final Invisalign Results

At the end of treatment, patients will have straighter, healthier, and more attractive smiles. Minor cosmetic dentistry work at the end can lead to optimal outcomes.
