Clear Aligners

Looking for a more discreet alternative to braces?

Traditionally, braces have been the preferred method for dentists to straighten teeth.

With braces, the brackets and metal wires are attached to the teeth and tightened regularly to correct the teeth.

Because clear aligners like Invisalign, Smilezy and ClearCorrect don’t use wires or brackets to correct the teeth, it is becoming an increasingly popular alternative to braces.

Fortunately, we're pleased to offer a complimentary virtual assessment for Smilezy Clear Aligners. Take advantage of this opportunity to explore the benefits of our clear aligners NZ with a free virtual consultation.

Our expert team is ready to guide you through the process, providing insights and information tailored to your unique needs. Begin your journey towards a confident and beautifully aligned smile by scheduling your free virtual assessment with Smilezy today.

What Are Clear Aligners?

Clear aligners are cutting-edge orthodontic treatment that offers a discreet and convenient way to straighten your teeth without the need for traditional metal braces. These clear aligners, often referred to as "teeth aligners" or "clear aligners," are custom-made to fit your teeth, making them virtually invisible when worn.

Clear aligners are a fantastic option for individuals who want to improve their smile without the aesthetic concerns associated with traditional braces. If you're in Auckland, clear aligners are readily available at Auckland Family Dental.

How Do Clear Aligners Work?

Clear aligners work by using transparent (almost invisible) aligners that are changed every 1 to 2 weeks for a new set of aligners.

Each clear aligner gradually moves your teeth into your desired position. When you reach your final aligner, your teeth will have moved into the ideal position pre-designed by you and your dentist.


During the design stage, your dentist will use a high-tech digital system to analyze your smile and digitally move your teeth in the desired alignment. By doing this, the patient is able to see and customize the end results to match the patient’s needs.

Number of Aligners

A patient can have anywhere from 10 to 40 aligners, depending on their case. Clear aligners need to be worn full time (day & night) to achieve best results, but can be removed for eating, brushing and flossing. Because of how discreet the treatment is, it’s no wonder it is a popular choice for many!

Auckland Family Dental offers orthodontic treatment with Invisalign Auckland and other clear aligners like Smilezy and ClearCorrect.

Clear Aligners Advantages

Aesthetic Appeal

One of the most significant benefits of Invisalign is its discreet appearance. The clear aligners are virtually invisible, allowing you to maintain your confidence and smile without feeling self-conscious about metal braces. 

Comfortable Fit

Invisalign aligners are made from smooth, comfortable plastic. Unlike traditional braces, there are no wires or brackets that can cause irritation or discomfort in your mouth. 


Invisalign aligners are removable, which means you can take them out for eating, brushing, and flossing. This makes maintaining oral hygiene during treatment much easier. 

Effective Results

Invisalign effectively treats a wide range of orthodontic issues, including crowded teeth, gaps, overbites, underbites, and more. It provides consistent, predictable results when worn as instructed. 

No Dietary Restrictions

With Invisalign, you can enjoy your favorite foods without worrying about damage to your aligners. Simply remove them while eating and put them back in afterward. 

The Invisalign Process

Initial Consultation

The Invisalign journey begins with a consultation with an experienced orthodontist. During this appointment, your orthodontist will assess your teeth and discuss your goals. This is a crucial step as it helps create a tailored treatment plan.

Custom Treatment Plan

Your orthodontist will use advanced 3D imaging technology to create a precise digital model of your teeth. This model serves as the basis for your custom Invisalign aligners.

Aligner Fabrication

Based on the treatment plan, your aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth. These aligners will gradually shift your teeth into the desired position over time.

Regular Check-ups

Throughout your treatment, you will have periodic check-ups with your orthodontist to monitor your progress and receive your new sets of aligners.

Achieving the Perfect Smile

The Invisalign treatment typically takes around 12 to 18 months, depending on the complexity of your case. Once the treatment is complete, you'll enjoy a beautifully straight smile.

How Long Do Clear Aligners Take?

While each and every case is different, dependent on the complexity of the case some cases can take as little as 3 months while some can take more than 2 years.

On average, our treatment plans are about 10-14 months to complete.

Without a thorough assessment, it is hard to estimate a treatment completion date.

I don't usually place reviews unless I feel the need to.

I took my daughter here today for her first consultation for braces and oh my goodness. What an awesome team!

They made my daughter (who was naturally a little nervous) feel so relaxed (..and not to mention made my little one happy by making small talk with her)

Can't wait to start with my daughters braces treatment. Affordable treatment plans, good location, great parking and a very friendly team.

Keep up the good work! Highly recommended to all.

A 5-star rating.

The entire experience I had with the team from booking through to consult was fantastic...

Have you ever been to the dentist and feel you aren't being given all the information you need to make an informed decision about how to proceed moving forward? I have. BUT this is a dental practice you can trust.

He walked me through the options step by step, risk assessing each and really helped me decide on what was best for me.

I cannot rate these guys enough... Incredible dental practice. Thanks very much!

A 5-star rating.
