" I was vacationing in Cape Town when my crown fell off only after 9 months so I needed to find a dentist to put this back on asap. Luckily, I was staying in Hout Bay and found this dental studio. My bf typed "crown dentist cape town" in Google and this place came up on the first page.
They were able to see me the next day. Making an appointment was super easy and the office was very responsive.
Dr David Malan took care of me. He was quick to identify the problem and explain why my old crown couldn't be put back on. It was fractured and wasn't cemented properly by my dentist in Hong Kong, the crown was also too thin which is why it broke. Because he was able to explain this in such detail, the dentist who did this for me was willing to pay for my replacement.
They had the equipment in this office to make a new crown on the same day, which was impressive given I had to wait 2 weeks for my previous one to be made. I had to have my molars shaved down a little bit more in order for the new crown to fit (it had to be thicker). They had all the equipment to do everything so quickly and with ease, I was super impressed with the service and how hi-tech everything was.
Dr Malan was professional and gentle, and made what could have been a really terrible and painful procedure very pleasant.
I've had a lot of dentists before, bad ones as well as really good ones. I would consider Dr Malan the best dentist I've ever had.
It might even be a reason to come back to Cape Town for my check up in the future!!
I'd highly recommend this dentist, you don't need to go anywhere else. "
