Advanced Dental Technology

Rejuvenate Your Smile

Restore Your Confidence

Retain Your Beautiful Smile

What would you do if you had the perfect smile?

Digital Smile Design (DSD) is a way in which we at OptiSmile work with our patients to get a better idea of the best way to improve the appearance of their teeth. We use this technology in particular when we are going to be working extensively on creating the best possible dental design for each client, but also for smaller procedures such as if a crown needs replacing. Dental implants and veneers can dramatically alter the appearance of your face and it’s therefore important to have a realistic understanding of what can be achieved for you.

DSD, in essence, allows you to become the co-creator of your new smile.

What Technology Does OptiSmile Use?

We use advanced CEREC CAD/CAM technology. This allows us to take 3D images of your mouth or tooth and adjust the imagery to what is required, whether this be a complete crown, veneers, fillings or dental implants.

Are you experiencing more than 1 dental problem?

Digital Smile Design 1

CEREC

Computer assisted creation of ceramic inlays, veneers, bridges and implants, all in one visit. Find out how our CAD/CAM technology works to redesign your teeth.

The Numbing Wand

Fear of injections and pain is the number one fear of people visiting the dentist. The numbing wand is minimally invasive.

Leave no molar unturned. The Orthophos 3D X-ray produces extremely accurate 3D images of your mouth to help us detect any dental problems.

Depending on what you need doing, this process can be extremely quick. For example, it’s possible to get a ceramic tooth cut in as little as 30 minutes on our premises, if required.

We use CEREC CAD/CAM technology as it allows us to perform work on a microscopic level to minimise any alteration of a patient’s natural teeth, particularly if veneers are a consideration.

Our team are always willing to talk you through the process, so come and visit us in our Cape Town dental offices or send us your questions online. We can then help advise you on what your next steps should be.

Digital Smile Design is changing the face of aesthetic dental treatments and is used by leading dentists all over the world. It’s a visual software that essentially helps dentists work with their patients to address their main cosmetic dental concerns and the process will generally go as follows:
  1. Initial consultation during which photos are taken along with a mould of the current shape of the teeth, we’ll also review the current condition of your teeth to talk about the very best options available to you at this stage
  2. Patient information and images are added to the software
  3. The software then allows for the reshaping, re-colouring and addition of missing teeth by the dentist, addressing the patient’s needs
  4. The re-designed visuals are then passed on to the patient who will be able to feed back on the proposed new smile design
  5. Once the patient is completely happy with their new smile, the mould and new design will be passed to our dental laboratory along with the mould taken
  6. The laboratory then creates a wax-up from which we create a rubber mould that can be placed in the client’s mouth to get a realistic feel of the results before starting any treatments
The Digital Smile Designs process won’t always involve all the above mentioned steps and can sometimes be a lot quicker, depending on the extent of work that is required on the teeth. Simply replacing a dental inlay, crown, veneer or implant can potentially take place during the same consultation, as a ceramic tooth can be cut in as little as 30 minutes based upon the design.
Digital Smile Design is a supplementary smile restoration technology that helps a patient work with their dentists to find the best look based on their own preference. Its main benefit lies in the fact that it allows the patient to see what their new smile will look like before embarking on any dental treatments. You therefore get to see how much of a life-changing difference a new smile is likely to have. This is particularly useful in instances where the dental restoration process is likely to be extensive and costly. However, our practice is geared to provide quick dental restoration services as well.
