Crowns

Dental crowns from Dr Mark Barrett - Harley Street, Central London W1

Crowns (sometimes called caps) are restorations custom-made in a laboratory that fit over the remaining tooth to restore form and function.

Uses:

  • To restore strength to teeth with large fillings
  • To improve the appearance of teeth which are discoloured
  • To protect teeth which have had a root filling and are prone to irreversible fractures.

Types:

  • Porcelain – excellent cosmetically
  • Porcelain with a metal base for additional strength
  • Gold – for the back teeth where strength is the most important factor.
