London Dentist

I came into Bow Lane Dental dissatisfied with my front teeth due to flurosis. After a consultation which outlined my options I returned to have the treatment. I was made to feel very welcome by James and his staff and felt comfortable at all times.

Inlays, crowns & veneers

Repair broken, cracked, worn or unsightly teeth with our Inlays, Crowns & Dental Veneers.

Dental Inlays, Crowns and Dental Veneers In London From Bow Lane Dental

Inlays, Crowns & Dental Veneers are an inexpensive way of cosmetically repairing broken, cracked, worn or unsightly teeth. Bow Lane Dental use both traditional materials and the more advanced porcelain equivalents at our London practice to create a great looking smile.

After an initial consultation with you we will discuss the most appropriate form of treatment.

Inlays & Onlays

An Inlay or Onlay is a porcelain filling (either part or full) bonded into place to protect the tooth from chewing.

Inlays and Onlays are custom made in our lab by our technicians in London to fit into or over the tooth. They are used when there is insufficient tooth structure to support a directly placed filling.

This is carried out over two appointments, the first of which is to prepare the tooth, take impressions and place a temporary inlay. At the second appointment the permanent porcelain Inlay or Onlay is bonded to the tooth.

A Crown, or porcelain crown, is a cap, cover or restoration to replace the missing portion of a tooth.

There are many indications for crowning a tooth. These can be due to aesthetic considerations but most are due to a lack of remaining tooth structure. If a tooth is broken down or heavily filled, the crown is placed to protect the tooth from the high biting forces we exert on our teeth whilst eating.

Not all crowns are the same and we provide gold crowns, porcelain bonded to gold crowns at our London practice, as well as the latest in the metal free alternatives that give truly lifelike results.

The latest advances in porcelain allows light to transmit through the crown, thereby creating a restoration that is undetectable from the other natural teeth in your smile. With the absence of any metal core on the inside of the crown, there will be no more telltale grey lines that are usually seen with the older metal ceramic crowns.

A Veneer is a thin layer of porcelain used to cover the front of a tooth. Bow Lane Dental are one of the most experinced practices in fitting Dental Veneers in London.

Dental Veneers are considered for several reasons such as when the enamel has become worn, chipped or discoloured or the teeth have become misaligned.

Dental Veneers are extremely thin but once bonded to the tooth are unbelievably strong. They are able to block out undesirable colours, such as from a very dark underlying tooth and allow the beauty of the veneers to shine through. In our London practice, we frequently use Dental Veneers to create a smile that is natural and beautiful.

In most cases we carry out a diagnostic wax up where you can trial your dental veneers prior to going ahead with the definitive treatment.

Our dentists are some of the few dentists in not only London, but the whole of the UK who are certified to carry out the latest in Durathin Veneers that require no preparation at all. You can find out more about Veneers here or visit Wikipedia.
