Our entire philosophy aims to achieve the best oral health, functionality, and dental aesthetics.

We understand that facial, dental, and oral problems must be evaluated, understood, and managed to achieve facial and individual beauty.

Therefore, the challenge of combining the triad of phonetics, function and aesthetics has always been the primary therapeutic goal of leading dentists in Cape Town.

Smile makeovers require a healthy start.

Digital Smile Design can only be used when the teeth and gums are healthy and in the correct position.

How did OptiSmile Cosmetic Dentistry start in Cape Town?

I returned to the City of Cape Town, South Africa, after 32 years abroad in London, San Diego, and Perth. My late father, a dentist, inspired me to build this ultramodern dentistry facility spread over 500 square meters.

 

My inspiration for returning to South Africa was threefold.

  • My high school sweetheart Robyn Zinman lived here in Sea Point, and after 37 years apart, we were reunited on Facebook. So, I returned to the beautiful Western Cape and the African continent to be with her again.
  • My dad and mentor, Dr Louis Yudelman, was a well-renowned dentist in Johannesburg and practised dentistry to the highest standard for 57 years. He inspired me to make OptiSmile the centre for cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers in Sea Point.
  • Cape Town, the Indian and Atlantic oceans, Chapman’s Peak cycling route, the Cape Winelands, Sea Point Promenade, Nelson Mandela’s children, and Africa’s rainbow nation were

What Clients Are Saying About OptiSmile

I went to OptiSmile initially to get a broken tooth fixed, and find out more about Invisalign. I was experiencing jaw pain and had been told I could expect more chipping and breaking of my molars unless I addressed the root cause of crooked bottom teeth in particular. I ended up spending seven months with Louis, Harris, Clifford and their assistants, who worked out a complete dental plan for me and then repaired and straightened my teeth but also so much more. And Verona, who checked in with me at every appointment. It's the most relaxed yet professional and adept dental practice I've been to, with the latest technology and dental advancements. I no longer worry about teeth breaking and my jaw pain is gone. Louis and Clifford were also happy to work without anaesthetic when I said I'd prefer not to have it. Everyone in the practice is down to earth and friendly, and it creates a welcoming environment where you feel you're in safe hands. I'm confident now that my teeth are strong and fit for purpose for years to come. Thanks to all of you for such a comfortable and seamless experience.

OptiSmile, Dr Louis, Clifford & the amazing dental assistants saved my smile.This is the best dentist in the world in my opinion after visiting veneer specialist dental clinics around the world and having a rough 2 year journey of trying to re-correct my original veneer work which I had done in the UK, Dr Louis, Clifford and OptiSmile saved me and have changed my life especially my mental health.I came to Optismile originally just for them to stick back on my veneer which had been falling off for the last two years, I really was hopeless and Clifford offered me a treatment plan which would re-correct the full veneer work with even more veneers included and also fix my bite which I had struggled with intense pain and regular headaches with.I ended up going for it, I trusted my instincts as not only you can see how professional they are but also friendly and the clinic is very modern with the latest technology.I had a full makeover and life changing smile all within 3 months, not to mention a very reasonable price for the highest quality.Dr Louis was in charge of my treatment and he allowed me to WhatsApp him with any concerns throughout, he’s become a good friend and I am so grateful.Thank you to everyone at Optismile, everyone on reception who are friendly, the dentists who are clear professionals, the assistants who are kind and gentle and everyone who made this journey so easy for me.Best,Lyndon.

I had the pleasure of being treated by the world class dentists at Optismile, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Dr. Cara did a fantastic job adding bridges, and Dr. Steyn was amazing with the implants. Their expertise and professionalism truly stand out. The entire experience was seamless, and they made sure I was comfortable every step of the way. Thanks to their excellent work, I now have a smile I'm proud of. Highly recommend these talented dentists to anyone in need of dental care!

Best dentistry place ever. Harris Smeyatsky is an amazing orthodontist and Cara Loubscher performed a piece of art on my front teeth using composite bonding. Looks completely natural!And on top of it the entire staff is always going the extra mile. I can highly recommend Optismile!

Went to Optismile a few months ago to have my tooth fixed by Dr Shaa (which I will highly recommend) not only did he just fix my tooth but he explained in depth what exactly it is that needs to be done, he also explained every step of the way which brought me alot of comfort as my last experience by a dentist was not so pleasant.Not only did he fix a tooth but he also gave back my confidence in my smile as I had a tiny chip on my front tooth that he al fixed (which looks super natural)I flet no pain or any difficulty after my appointment, I am definitely going back to optismile to Dr Shaa.

This might be a longer read than the usual review but this is the one that should matter most. Where to start... years and years of hiding my smile behind my hands or my hair (23 years)...and then we got a job on a remote island in Fiji half way around the world. Being in the hospitality industry and engaging with so many guests just made that a bit more of an issue. So when we got the job i said i will only take it if after the first year I can fix my teeth. So i googled and thanks to my miss spelling Optismile popped up. Due to the time difference between SA and Fiji we struggled to find a time that would work...and this is where it started. Dr Clifford moved things and made a time to do a video call interview and from the moment speaking to him I knew this was where I wanted to have my teeth done...but then the time we had available in SA was extremely short for the preparation leading up to my new vaneers but even that would not stop Dr Clifford from giving me a new outlook and a new smile. We flew half way around the world...drove from Yzerfontein to Seapoint for each of my appointments and the day before returning to Fiji I had my beautiful new pearlies...and some extra goodies to ensure that I am able to keep them pearly till our next return. In the chair his assistant was amazing knowing with each movement of my tongue where I needed suction and Dr Clifford was just the most caring soft handed Dentist ever. I am truly grateful to him and his team and there is only 1 choice to make if you need dentistry and that is Optismile. Nothing was impossible for Dr Clifford. Thank you for giving me a new smile I am finally whole.

I started treatment here with the best mouth survey I’ve ever had with Cara using the latest high tech equipment and was given a clear dental plan.I was personally very encouraged with the health summary for my gums and teeth as I’m 61 and as an adolescent in the 70’s had 4 double teeth pulled and the whole UK train tracks of amalgam in most double teeth by the end of my teens, several ‘on trend’ root canals in the 1980’s which wasn’t the best start for strong teeth in older age. I spent the 1990’s slowly having amalgam out and gold or porcelain or composite fillings put in.I’ve seen a lot of dentists over the years and am only writing all this to encourage you if you are nervous or know you need some work.At Optismile I had the most gentle drilling I have ever had on an old large filling that needed replacing.It was superb work. Even the anesthetic was just what was needed and wore off gently and quickly.Highly recommended. Great value.

My experience with OptiSmile was great. I managed to get an appointment very quickly for my tooth ache and the support over phone in preparation of the appointment was much welcome and appreciated. Dr Clifford is very friendly and helped me out efficiently without having to go through unnecessary screens and test.

The best experience. I was suffering from a cracked tooth whilst travelling and contacted OptiSmile on NYE. I received fast and friendly responses with an appointment on the 2nd. They quickly identified and resolved the issue for me. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The actual space is beautifully designed and belongs in Switzerland. If only all dentists and healthcare providers were so great. Thank you!

Dr Clifford was beyond amazing. Best experience I’ve ever had with a dentist. Facilities and technology they use are the best I’ve ever seen. I went in with an issue my dentist had recommended a root canal for and wanted a second opinion. Dr Clifford said it wasn’t necessary and fixed my issue in a much less invasive fashion. Thankyou so much!

Absolutely amazing experience. I had a year and a half of Invisalign and then had Injection Molding done to finish it off. I had a completely new smile and a comfortable bite. I felt looked after through the entire experience, Optismile always went the extra mile for me.

Unbelievable results - I could not be happier! OptiSmile and Dr Harris Smeyatsky are among the best professionals I've ever worked with. Everything from the service, to the patient care, to the expertise, and importantly the final result, all of it was a pleasure.Dr Harris Smeyatsky is an expert and perfectionist. I felt like I could completely trust his advice and everything he was doing during my Invisalign and final bonding treatment, and I'm very grateful that he was my orthodontist during this process.Would highly recommend them!

Couldn't be happier! Incredible service from start to finish with the entire team and Dr Harris & Clifford. Communicating via whatsapp and having friendly reception staff made the overall journey so much easier and enjoyable. Harris is THE guy to do invisilign with in South Africa and I can see why. 10/10 for results! Really enjoyed his personal and friendly approach ...he may even have convinced me that I like going to the dentist now. To finish my dental journey, I had injection bonding with Dr Clifford who was just as amazing. Will definitely only be going to Optismile for all future dental procedures. Big thanks to everyone

Great service! I was on a cruise and chipped a tooth while at sea. I wanted to find a dentist at our next port in South Africa. I searched online and found OptiSmile. I was able to book an appointment online. The office was professional and the dentist fixed my tooth so that I could enjoy the rest of my cruise without worry. I highly recommend this practice.

Absolutely incredible experience from start to finish. I had been to many dentists all over the world to fix my teeth but all said it would take an average of two years. My entire treatment was complete within 4 months and I couldn’t be happier with the results. My teeth are perfect now and I cannot stop smiling. The staff and doctors were incredibly supportive and friendly and were always available to answer any questions. This is by far the best experience I’ve ever had at any dentist and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants the best!

Had the most relaxed, smooth and an amazing general experience at OptiSmile SeaPoint. Exceptional staff, super welcoming and friendly, great tech, the clinic is impeccably clean, and the attention to detail was not only impressive but very satisfying for the soul😊. I am in awe and absolutely delighted with Optismile. Dr. Cara and team, YOU ROCK💕

I couldn't recommend this practice more. I got injection molding, fillings and general teeth whitening done. They only use the best equipment, I felt super safe and comfortable every consultation/treatment. The offices/rooms are beautifully designed, far better than any other practice I've been to.Kinan (dentist), Olwethu (assistant) and all the other assistants involved in my treatment have been amazing. Super friendly, more than willing to explain their processes & help you pick the best treatment plan, and clearly care about their patients. Clear professionals, they're so good at what they do.I will say it's quite expensive but if you're able to pay for it, it is worth every cent!

I couldn’t have asked for more caring, kind and compassionate people to help me with my complicated case. I had a car accident many years ago and had prior work done by another practice which I started to experience severe problems with. I was so anxious to have them fixed but I’m so glad I came here and went ahead. They were incredible at taking care of my case and went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. Dr Clifford & his wife even came in on the weekend to help me when I was experiencing pain as well as dropped off painkillers and a care package when I was too weak to leave my house. I had to come in for an appointment on my birthday and the whole practice sang happy birthday to me. Thank you Optismile. I am very grateful for your professionalism, your thoughtfulness and for giving me my smile back! I will recommend you to everyone I know.

I expected professionalism at OptiSmile, of course. What really pleased me was the caring attitude and approach to patients. In addition, the office was gleaming, clean with all the latest technology to take the experience truly to the next level. Most of all, though, is my appreciation for Dr. Shaa. He was totally with me in guiding and helping me to understand the procedure and his technique. I would highly recommend Dr. Shaa and OptiSmile. 5 stars +++.

Easy booking system. Instead of sitting in the waiting room filing in forms, I could do it online and save time. Was greeted and welcomed with a great smile and service by Widaad & I walked away with a whiter brighter smile given to me by Dr. Kinan and Olwethu, explaining the procedure step by step.

I've been to see Dr Yudelman for 2 Cerec restorations. I couldn't recommend him more highly. The practice is really professionally run and organised. Both procedures were completely, and I mean completely, pain free. I'd go as far as to say I actually enjoyed the experience.I’ve since been back for a third cerec restoration: Dr Clifford again did a flawless job. And once more, completely painless.
