Rating from 18 Reviews I can not believe how brilliant Dr Hartshorne isLelethu, South Africa, 01 Dec 16

I went to him for just a consultation and in just 2 days I had already started treatment. I was a bit shy and embarrassed because the work that needed to be done on my teeth was extensive but both him and his team made me feel so calm and comfortable. I am so happy I went to him, he is very knowledgeable and gave me the most information than I ever got on my teeth. Most importantly he is kind. I would recommend him to anyone.

Rating from 7 Reviews Two step gym graft procedureRia, South Africa, 21 Aug 15

Dr Abram was a saving grace in my instance. I had a previous botched gum graft surgery with scarring when I went to Dr Abram. He knew exactly how to treat me and told me from the start that I required a two step gum graft procedure. Dr Abram performs this surgery under general anaesthetic. Dr Abram is kind, gentle & professional. I had very little swelling and pain. Dr Abrams aftercare service is wonderful. Charges for treatment - either Medical Aids pay TOO little or Periodontists charge too much, but the amount difference is substantial! Even though treatment is beyond most people's price bracket, I needed him & glad I found him. Even his staff is wonderful. Its a Small office and professional. Kind staff. It's a warm inviting environment and decorated well :) I was referred by another periodontist secretary but I did find this practice on Google first.

Dr. Adé Meyer Cosmetic Dentistry

Rating from 10 Reviews I have made the right decisionKevin, South Africa, 08 Dec 16

I am a cancer surivor and a diabetic. Both conditions have wrecked havoc on my teeth. I am going to have to have all my teeth replaced via implants due to a number of factors. In my case there is not an option of wearing dentures due to the thin bones. These procedures should not be classified under "cosmetic" only as in my case to leave this any longer could result in serious health issues later on. Are they good value for money ? Well when the issue could become life threatening due to compromised immune system then you cant really put a price on it. I have no idea what a comparable quote would look like, I have not "shopped around" as it's not like I am buying a set of tyres for my car. After talking to Ade I am positive I have made the right decision, yes the option I have to go for is expensive. I feel so sorry for patients that need this but just cant afford it my heart goes out to you. Exactly what I was looking for. With the issues I have I am expecting great results. This process is going to take a few months. The staff are fantastic. Ade is a wonderful person to talk to and knows her stuff. My next appointment is in January.

Gum Surgery  
Surgery is a very strong word again in modern dentistry.  Nowadays we use lasers instead of scalpels!  Lasers requires no stitches or cuts. It is easy and painless to shape and form gums should this procedure be performed.
Gum Contouring and Reshaping  
Shaping and Contouring of gums are done in minutes, using a laser. Its pain-free, and also blood-free, because we are not using scalpels and stitches!
Soft Tissue Grafts  
With the use of lasers, we do minor gum-sculpting procedures, the treatment of periodontal disease and many other minor soft tissue procedures. This is an indispensable tool in our practice!
