So happy with my new perfect, white teethMadelein, South Africa, 11 02 20

I have been to many dentists but never came across someone as good as Dr Adé Meyer. I had 6 crowns done 5 years ago which were all leaking. I didn't want to go back to my previous dentist, was worried I would have the same problem again. I saw the great reviews Dr Adé got and made an appointment. I was really impressed with her and her team. A week later I was there at 9:00 and left at 16:00 with 8 new crowns which are perfect! I decided to do an extra 2. I can highly recommend Dr. Adé! So happy with my new perfect, white teeth!

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!
