A very understanding and accommodating dental surgeon

5 50 Dental Implants, Extractions

To date, all my consultations for dental implants went well. I have had 3 extractions of which one was invasive dental surgery owing to a broken tooth that had to be removed. Other preparatory procedures have been done to my upper jaw. Dr Huson with over 30 yrs experience was my best choice. A very understanding and accommodating dental surgeon. I did after my first consult decides to look at alternatives but I was grateful to Christina who contacted me to assure me that Dr. Huson will look at the plan to see how best he can address my concerns and not long I was back to begin surgery. The dental clinic has wonderful people like Christina, Sarah and Marguerite to care and facilitate the proceedings for every visit. I am confident that when Dr Huson is finished that my goals would have been reached. Thank you dr, and staff at Silver Oaks Clinic.

The dentist was exceptionally pleasant personality, giving a lot of explaining what he was doing

5 50 Dentist Consultation • Paid: R2000

I don't think I met better dentist. First they were up to all safety standards regarding the corona situation. And the dentist was exceptionally pleasant personality, giving a lot of explaining what he was doing. All in all very pain free and informative.

Thank you so much Jan for your kind words and review. Really appreciate it.

Dr Roy is a very humble man and I can confirm that creating a beautiful smile is his passion. Together with his dental nurse Christine, who is also a very humble person, they make you feel so important. I travelled from a remote area to restore my front teeth. After one consultation and assessment, this was done in one day! The technology, knowledge and expertise are top of the range. Thank you, Dr Roy, to you and your team! You are the best dentist ever!

Thank you.

At Silver Oaks Dental Clinic we pride ourselves in using only the highest quality materials for all your treatment. We are a completely metal-free practice and do not use any mercury, lead, nickel, or any other metal in our filling materials. We have been doing so for the last 10 years.
These metals have been linked to so many systemic diseases including, amongst others Alzheimers disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), Parkinsons Disease, Asthma, Fibromyalgia, IBS, to name but a few. We believe that the risks involved in using these metals far outweigh their possible benefits. Besides that, the ceramic and composite materials which are used in our practice are tooth-coloured which means you leave with a much more natural and aesthetic smile.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth Whitening - Silver Oaks Dental ClinicTeeth Whitening - Silver Oaks Dental Clinic
Improve your confidence with our teeth whitening treatment. Now you can smile more with our PAIN FREE, safe and effective treatment. Whiten your teeth up to 9 shades!  Dental bleaching, also known as teeth whitening is a common procedure in general dentistry, but most especially in the field of cosmetic dentistry.

Get a bright new smile with Teeth Whitening that is pain-free, quick, effective. 

As you grow older the adult teeth often become darker in colour due to changes in the mineral structure of the tooth, Teeth can also become stained by bacterial pigments, foodstuffs and tobacco. Certain antibiotic medications can also cause teeth to stain. Dental bleaching can combat these changes in tooth colour and give you a more youthful looking smile. We offer our patients a two-stage "laser" whitening procedure to whiten teeth.

The procedure takes place over three appointments. The first appointment is to take impressions of your teeth (a cleaning is advised at this appointment), the second appointment will be to fit your specially designed bleaching trays to your mouth and explain to you how to use them. The last appointment is the "laser" light whitening appointment. Patients can maintain their bright smiles thereafter with their specially fitted dental trays and gels which we will supply to them.

In-office bleaching, which is applied by a dental professional in a controlled environment, is a safe and effective way to brighten your smile. It is always wise to consult your dentist or hygienist for a check up and cleaning prior to whitening your teeth.  Talking to your dentist first is always your safest option. He or she can tell you whether whitening procedures would be safe and effective for your particular teeth.
