Invisalign® Clear Aligners
If you want to straighten crooked, crowded or misaligned teeth – but you don't want to wear braces – Invisalign can be a convenient alternative.
This orthodontic treatment uses removable aligners that can be taken out when you eat, brush and floss, unlike a fixed brace. Best of all, the aligners are made from clear plastic so most people won't even notice you're wearing them.
At Bright White Dental, we offer a full range of Invisalign options for adults and teens, depending on what changes you want to make to your smile. Call us today on (09) 576 8689 to find out more and book a free consultation with our Auckland dentists.
Why choose Invisalign?
Invisalign aligners are a popular alternative to braces for many reasons. The main advantages are:
- Discreet – your aligners will be made from transparent plastic and are designed to fit over your teeth snugly. This makes them less detectable than braces.
- Comfortable – all orthodontic treatment involves minor discomfort as your teeth are moved, but aligners are more comfortable than braces and won't scratch or irritate your mouth.
- Convenient – you can take out your aligners when you eat and drink or brush and floss your teeth, so you won't have to work around braces. There are also fewer check-ups required.
Who can have Invisalign treatment?
The Invisalign system was originally developed for adults looking for a discreet alternative to braces, but treatments are now available for eligible teenagers too.
Invisalign treatment can be effective at correcting most mild to moderate teeth alignment problems. That includes:
- overbite and open bite
- crooked and crowded teeth
- gaps between teeth
- some underbite and crossbite
If you're interested in having Invisalign treatment at Bright White Dental, our dentists will give you a complete orthodontic assessment to determine whether Invisalign is an option for you, or if you could benefit more from another treatment.
How do Invisalign aligners work?
Invisalign treatment works in a similar way to traditional braces – applying gentle pressure to the teeth that forces them to move into their new position over time. The difference is that a brace is fixed in position and adjusted by your dentist, while aligners are replaced every one to two weeks with the next set in the series.
Our dentists will design your complete orthodontic journey and show you an example of what your smile could look like if you wear your aligners as recommended. Once your aligners are fitted and feel comfortable, we'll show you how to use them and supply you with the next few sets before we see you again to check your progress.
Invisalign has a high success rate for eligible patients who wear their aligners for at least 20–22 hours a day, only taking them out to eat, brush, floss and at other necessary times.
