Set your smile straight with Invisalign at Lumino Christchurch City with Dr Brigitte Lyne.
If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Invisalign® treatment straightens your teeth through a series of clear, comfortable and removable aligners. Each aligner is slightly different, moving your teeth gradually into the desired position.
How does Invisalign work?
Your Invisalign clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth. Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every second week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan.
How long does Invisalign treatment last for?
Invisalign full treatments range from 6-18 months depending on the number of aligners needed and the amount of tooth movement required. Invisalign Lite treatments which are a maximum of 14 aligners take approximately 28 weeks to complete.
After completion of the treatment, we recommend wearing your custom retainer several nights a week to prevent relapse as our teeth constantly shift as we age.
