Invisalign at Thorndon Orthodontics: A Clear Path to a Perfect Smile
For those in search of a discreet, effective teeth straightening solution, look no further than clear aligners. As a trusted provider of Invisalign, Wellington residents can transform their smile with this innovative smile solution at Thorndon Orthodontics.
Why Choose Invisalign?
Invisalign is a one of the best known manufacturers of clear aligners. These clever and invisible mouth guards gradually shift your teeth into their ideal positions. Think of Invisalign aligners as invisible braces - unlike traditional braces which are very noticeable on your teeth, clear aligners allow you to straighten your teeth without compromising their natural look.
The Invisalign Process
The journey to a straighter smile with Invisalign starts with a comprehensive consultation. We will examine your teeth and determine if clear aligners are the right solution for your teeth alignment needs. Then, using advanced 3D technology (so goodbye to gooey moulds), we'll create a personalised treatment plan that outlines the exact movements of your teeth.
Invisible Teeth Aligners: The Invisalign Advantage
Invisible teeth aligners like Invisalign are made from clear, medical-grade plastic, making them virtually unnoticeable. These clear teeth aligners are also removable, allowing you to eat, brush, and floss normally throughout your treatment period.
Treatment Duration with Invisalign
The duration of treatment with invisible aligners like Invisalign varies based on the complexity of the case. However, on average, it usually takes between 12 to 18 months to complete the treatment, a similar timeframe to traditional braces.
Aftercare: Retaining Your Perfect Smile
Post-Invisalign treatment, we provide retainers to ensure your teeth stay in their new, aligned position. These are discreet like your Invisalign aligners, and they're essential to maintaining the results of your teeth alignment journey.

Invisalign in Wellington - Frequently Asked Questions
How often do I need to wear my Invisalign aligners?
For the best results, you should wear your Invisalign aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day. They can be removed for eating, drinking, brushing, and flossing, or for special occasions.
Are Invisalign aligners really invisible?
Invisalign aligners are made from a clear, medical-grade plastic that is virtually invisible when worn. While they"re not completely undetectable, they are far less noticeable than traditional braces.
How long does the Invisalign treatment take?
The length of your Invisalign treatment will depend on your specific case and will be outlined by your orthodontist before starting treatment. On average, treatment usually lasts between 12 to 18 months, but this can vary based on the complexity of your teeth alignment needs.
Will I need a retainer after my Invisalign treatment?
Yes, absolutely! After completing any orthodontic treatment, you"ll typically need to wear a retainer to maintain your new smile. This helps prevent your teeth from gradually shifting back to their original position. Where possible, you will be fitted with a fixed retainer wire. Additionally, we will also provide a removable retainer, discreet like your Invisalign aligners and is custom-made for your comfort to be worn at night time.
