Cape Town`s Children`s Dentist Near Me

Many of the challenges of pediatric dentistry and orthodontics relate not to technical skill, but simply in making children feel comfortable and less anxious — something the caring pediatric dentists and staff at our practice excel at.



Paediatric dentistry is the part of dentistry that is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teen years into adulthood.

In children, preventive dentistry is very important – so visiting the dentist at a young age is a very important aspect of teaching. We recommend bringing children to see the dentist for their first visit after your child’s first birthday or once all their baby teeth have erupted. During the visit, your child will gently be introduced to the dentists and their supporting staff. Your little one will be exposed to the dental experience, the chair, the equipment, the smells, the sounds and the friendly faces that will be greeting him or her each time.


Oral health


As dentists we are compassionate about oral health, so during your child’s first visits, we will be focused on teaching the importance of proper oral health and teaching good brushing and flossing techniques for strong, healthy teeth.


Dental cleaning


Depending on your child’s age, a gentle clean or polish can be done to introduce the typical dental check-up that he or she can expect in the future.

Why Choose A Pediatric Dentist

Paediatric dentistry is an age-defined speciality that provides both primary and comprehensive preventive and therapeutic oral health care for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special needs.



Paediatric Dentistry encompasses a variety of disciplines, techniques, procedures and skills that share a common basis with other specialities, but are modified and adapted to the special needs of infants, children, adolescents and those with special health care needs.


While the initial visits to the dentist should not require treatment, future visits may involve fillings and fissure sealants. In cases where a lot of restorative work is needed and your child isn’t able to sit still for long periods of time, we might recommend that the work should be done under sedation or general anaesthetic.


While we will be teaching proper oral health, to ensure proper brushing, parents should supervise teeth brushing until the age of 7 (sometimes even up to the age of 9) when your little one can do it him/herself.


Parents are also encouraged to keep an eye out for improper alignment, overbite, underbite and malocclusions that may require early orthodontic intervention.


Nonetheless, regular visits to the dentist can prevent a variety of future dental issues.

What Else Can OptiSmile Offer my Smile?

Teeth Straightening

OptiSmile is proud to be Cape Town`s 1st platinum level Genuine Invisalign provider. Dr. Harris Smeyatsky is one of the most skilled Orthodontists in the world with Invisalign being his number 1 method for straightening teeth predictably and accurately.

Tooth Implants

Dental implants are metal posts that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums, in order to provide bone-like support for the replacement teeth that will be placed onto it. We use the highest quality dental implants.

Composite Bonding

Composite bonding is a cosmetic technique in which composite resin is shaped and moulded on your teeth to give the appearance of a straighter, whiter smile. It can be used as a cosmetic solution to chipped teeth and gapped teeth.

Dental Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth.

Gum Contouring

Gum contouring shapes your gums to fit your teeth structure. This results in a less gummy smile. If your gums seem too big for your smile, or they protrude awkwardly, a gum contour may be a part of your smile makeover.

Teeth Whitening

Tooth whitening or tooth bleaching is the process of lightening the color of human teeth. Whitening is often desirable when teeth become yellowed over time for a number of reasons, and can be achieved by changing the intrinsic or extrinsic color of the tooth enamel.
