What Is Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentists improve the appearance of teeth and optimise your smile. Cosmetic dentistry involves a great deal of skill and artistry. We use great technologies to work with our patients to create their ideal smile. This is also why we sometimes refer to cosmetic dentistry as smile design and use digital technologies to assist in extensive smile transformations for our patients.

When attending special events and functions, the focus is often on enjoying delicious food, spending time with great company, and capturing memorable pictures. In today’s world of social media, it’s important to put your best face forward in each photo, and a radiant smile plays a crucial role in achieving this goal.

Having a beautiful smile can boost your confidence and make you more approachable in social, professional or romantic situations. Our dentists offer smile makeovers that can address various dental issues and give you a complete smile transformation.

Opting for a complete smile transformation might seem daunting at first. However, a smile makeover is a gradual process that involves a series of minor procedures. Our end goal is to enhance the appearance of your teeth by making them whiter, straighter, and more uniform, all while maintaining a completely natural look.

Our dentists consider various components to give you a gorgeous smile, including your facial appearance, skin tone, hair colour, teeth (colour, width, length, shape, and tooth display), gum tissue and lips. Smile makeovers are performed for many reasons and customised according to your unique considerations.

Depending on your desired results, we will recommend a series of cosmetic and functional procedures. The most common treatments in a smile makeover are teeth whitening, composite bonding, Invisalign and dental veneers. We also recommend implants where teeth have been lost.

These procedures have stunning results on their own but drastically change your smile when combined! Modern cosmetic dentistry can help you achieve the teeth you’ve always wanted, no matter what the current state of your smile. So if you wish to whiten your teeth, straighten your smile, or correct an unsightly bite misalignment—our team will help you find a solution.

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!read more

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.

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 everyoneread more

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!read more

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!read more

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.read more

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 +++.read more

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.

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.read more

The stress and fatigue of continually feeling insecure about your smile is something you don`t need heading into a highly anticipated summer season.  

 

  • Confident, beautiful smiles have a 40% increased chance of helping you land that dream job.
  • Nearly 60% chance of landing a date with your dream partner
  • Staggering 75% chance of boosting your confidence to levels where you`re a new person not held back by low self-esteem

We offer an obligation-free video consultation where we discuss everything with you in detail and your dental goals. We will help you build a plan to achieve the smile you have always wanted.  

It`s as easy as ABC.

The most common procedures used in cosmetic dentistry can be reasonably simple. Still, others are more complex and require specialised care.  

A - Aligning – Invisalign

Cosmetic Dentistry 7

The most advanced orthodontic and highly active aligners are in Sea Point, Cape Town, South Africa. Invisalign is an orthodontic treatment that utilises clear, plastic aligners to straighten teeth in two-week increments. After the two weeks are up, you will switch out your set of aligners for the next aligner set in your straightening series. Invisalign aligners are designed for your unique smile and treatment plan. They can move the teeth with gentle force to close gaps, reduce crowding, and fix minor bite alignment issues, such as overbites and underbites. OptiSmile is the first dental practice in Africa to use the Itero scanner. Have you always wanted straighter teeth but been afraid of the pain, the inconvenience of eating, and the appearance of a “tin grin”? Are you active and want to align your teeth? Invisalign won’t interfere with your daily activities. Unlike unconventional braces, Invisalign allows precise adjustments at specific points in your mouth instead of putting pressure on all your teeth that have been “wired in”. Worldwide over 11 million people have experienced the benefit of Invisalign clear orthodontics without having braces. It’s a great, non-invasive alternative that can get results faster than conventional braces, perfect for adults and teens who don’t want traditional railway tracks. In addition, you can join the excellent smile club. 

B - Bleaching - Teeth Whitening

Cosmetic Dentistry 8

The ultimate last-minute cosmetic touch-up – teeth whitening gives you a bright, beautiful smile without discomfort. We can brighten your smile with several shades in a single session, so this is a perfect last-minute addition to your party prep!
Teeth whitening is done once plaque, tartar and other debris are cleaned from the surface of each tooth, restoring their natural appearance. Teeth can also be bleached to achieve an even lighter shade than this original colour. Unfortunately, with time teeth become stained and worn from food, drinks, medication and bad personal habits like smoking. At OptiSmile, we have options that can be done in-chair or at home. 

C - Composite Bonding

Cosmetic Dentistry 9

Composite bonding refers to the repair of decayed, damaged, or discoloured teeth using material that resembles the colour of tooth enamel. At OptiSmile, we use our Leica microscope to detect the problem, remove the tooth decay and then apply the composite onto the tooth’s surface. This effectively covers the damage to the tooth and gives the appearance of a healthy tooth in its place. Bonding is a less expensive cosmetic dentistry procedure for patients with tooth decay or chipped, cracked or broken teeth.
The art of applying a composite resin to your teeth to fix teeth with cosmetic and structural issues. The newest techniques are minimally invasive – leaving you with more of your own tooth structure and a beautiful finish.

This has largely been replaced by computer-guided injection moulded composite bonding or veneers.

Other Cosmetic Dentistry Procedures

Implants

Dental implants are used to replace teeth after a tooth loss. Firstly we use our Orthophos 3D X-Ray to view and identify the area where a small titanium screw will be inserted into the jaw. The screw will serve as the support for a crown. The implants are almost indistinguishable from the surrounding natural teeth, and once the bone and supporting tissue fuse to the implant, they are permanently secured into place.

At OptiSmile, we believe that cosmetic dentistry should enhance the health and appearance of a patient’s smile. We use innovative solutions to optimise your bite and dental health while giving you a sparkling smile. If you’re considering any cosmetic dentistry procedures, contact OptiSmile now. We have a highly qualified dental team with the latest in dental technology available to perform any cosmetic procedures above.

Inlays, Onlays and Overlays

Also known as indirect ceramic fillings (created with CEREC technology), which are used when a tooth has mild to moderate decay, or there isn’t enough tooth structure to support a filling. 

Provided there is no damage to the tooth cusps, the inlay is placed directly onto the tooth surface. However, when the cusps of the crown or a more significant portion of the tooth are damaged, an onlay or overlay is used instead to cover the tooth’s entire surface.
Inlays and Onlays are made at OptiSmile from the best-performing Emax Ceramic and attached to the teeth with adhesive dental cement. They support and strengthen your teeth, restoring their shape and avoiding further deterioration or decay.

Dental Veneers

Porcelain Veneers never fail to amaze – they can cover a chip, hide a crack, make discolouration disappear, or correct a misshapen tooth, and the results are gorgeous. Moreover, the process is surprisingly quick, with minimal recovery time.
Veneers Are basically caps designed to cover the front surface of your tooth or many teeth. Dental veneers are made individually for each patient to resemble their natural teeth. We use our advanced CAD/CAM technology. As a result, they look exceptionally realistic and can resolve numerous cosmetic problems, such as crooked teeth, cracked or damaged enamel and even noticeable gaps between two teeth. Veneers are applied to the front of each tooth using a dental adhesive.

Explore further: The benefits of cosmetic dentistry

Dental insurance plans typically don’t cover cosmetic dentistry procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, Invisalign, or bonding. However, some insurance plans may cover a portion of the cost if the procedure is considered medically necessary. For example, if you need Invisalign to correct an overbite, your insurance might cover part of the cost, although they generally opt for braces, despite Invisaligns superior capabilities.
