What Clients Are Saying About OptiSmile

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.read more

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.read more

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!

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!read more

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

What Is Invisalign® First?

Invisalign® First is a specialised Invisalign® treatment tailored for children between 6 and 10. It utilises a series of sleek, transparent, and removable plastic aligners, which progressively adjust the alignment of the teeth and jaws. Invisalign® First is instrumental in encouraging the expansion of your child’s dental arch, facilitating additional space for incoming teeth.

 

The treatment begins with an initial consultation, with digital scans of your child’s smile. The digital scans help create custom-made Invisalign® aligners, ensuring they are a perfect fit and provide the utmost comfort for your child.

How can early orthodontic treatment help my child?

Identifying potential orthodontic issues whilst your child’s teeth are in the developmental stage can substantially diminish the duration and expense of future treatments. Certain warning signs may suggest that your child could benefit from early orthodontic treatment. These signs include:

  1. premature or delayed loss of milk teeth
  2. difficulties when chewing
  3. continuation of thumb-sucking past the age of five
  4. speech difficulties
  5. protruding teeth
  6. misalignment of teeth
  7. overcrowded teeth

 

Remember, prevention is indeed better than cure! If your child exhibits any of the above signs, it is crucial to have their teeth evaluated. But even more beneficial is proactive management, which involves taking your child to a specialist Orthodontist when they turn six.

How Does Invisalign® First Work?

Invisalign® First is an excellent method to achieve desirable results in Phase 1 treatment. The primary aim of this phase is to guide the development of young jaws and arches, creating ample space for existing teeth and accommodating future permanent teeth. Critical features of Invisalign® First aligners include:

01

Broad applicability: These aligners address many teeth straightening issues in growing children. These problems can range from simple to complex, including issues like overcrowding of teeth, spacing irregularities, and narrow dental arches.

02

Ease of maintenance: Given their removable nature, Invisalign® First aligners simplify the oral hygiene process. This feature is especially beneficial for growing children, making it easier for them to brush and floss.

03

Comfort-oriented design: The design of Invisalign® First aligners is centred on comfort, effectively eliminating the discomfort traditionally associated with braces. Children using these aligners need not worry about the rubbing brackets or wires poking into their gums.

Invisalign® First FAQs

Take a look at our most common questions about Invisalign® First. If you have further queries, please reach out to us for help.
Invisalign® First is a preferred option for aligning your children’s teeth, as it entails fewer visits to the dentist. Traditional braces require recurrent dental appointments due to adjustments to the wires. Invisalign® First allows for a flexible treatment schedule, reducing time spent in the dental chair.

Promoting the use of Invisalign® First to your child can involve a few strategies:

  • Education: Help your child understand the benefits of wearing Invisalign® First. Explain how it will help improve their smile and the health of their teeth. Use simple language and make it engaging by using visuals or videos if available.
  • Routine: Make wearing the aligners part of their daily routine. Just as they brush their teeth daily, wearing the aligners should be a regular part of their day.
  • Rewards: Establish a rewards system for compliance. When your child wears their Invisalign® First consistently, reward them with small incentives. It could be an extra half-hour of TV time, a special treat, or a trip to their favourite park or activity.
  • Role Models: If known figures or celebrities have used Invisalign®, share their stories with your child. Seeing someone they look up to having gone through the same process can be encouraging. You can tell them that even Bryan Habana uses Invisalign®!
  • Progress: Regularly show them their progress. Children often get excited when they see changes and improvements, which can motivate them to wear their aligners regularly.
  • Positive Reinforcement: Give them compliments on how good they look with their aligners and praise them for being responsible and caring for their teeth. Positive reinforcement can be very effective in promoting the desired behaviour.
  • Involvement: Involve them in the process. Let them feel like they’re a part of the decision-making process, whether during the consultation, fitting or check-up appointments.
