We encourage you to present us with any queries you may have. Our team of professionals will do their utmost to keep you informed throughout the entirety of your treatment process.

  • Will my procedure be performed while I am awake, or will I be asleep?

    Many dental procedures can be performed while patients are awake or asleep. Our specialist facility at the Dental Implant and Specialist Centre is well equipped to provide for the needs of our patients. As a part of this, we can perform the dental crown procedure while you are awake. However, in instances requiring an anaesthetic, we will book hospital facilities. We approach every treatment plan on a patient-by- patient basis. This means that you will receive only the most personalised and targeted healthcare. It also means that our specialists will assess your needs and establish a suitable course of action. Feel free to ask your specialist more about your options, if you are interested in having the procedure done while awake or asleep.

  • Will I need to arrange for time off work when I get a crown?

    At the Dental Implant and Specialist Centre, we are dedicated to providing minimally invasive dental treatments. Our dental specialists are among the most highly qualified and skilled in the profession. They have at their disposal leading edge medical technology. When combined, this allows us to perform precise and relatively non-invasive procedures. This means that your recovery time is greatly minimised.

    However, we do recommend that you take between one and two days off to rest, following the procedure. This timeframe will allow the early healing to complete and it will help ensure that the outcome is optimal. Recovery periods can vary between people and they also depend on the nature of your procedure. This is something that our specialists take into account. They will provide you with further details regarding your recovery at the time of your initial consultation.

  • Will the procedure itself be complete in a single day?

    With such advanced facilities and skilled surgeons, our dental crown procedure will take place on one day. The procedure does not need to be completed in instalments. However, we do arrange for review appointments to ensure that your recovery is going well. During these appointments, we check the stability of your crown and ensure that your recovery is on track.
