A tooth crown is a custom-made tooth cap. The dental prosthetic completely covers an existing tooth. As a result, crowns restore natural shape, size, color, and functionality. If you are looking for metal-free tooth restoration, then look no further! Your Lexington, MA dentist often will suggest a dental crown to repair weakened, damaged, or missing teeth. Crown restorations are also used in conjunction with implants, bridges, and root canals.
When damaged or misshapen teeth rob you of a beautiful smile, the result can be poor oral health and low self-esteem. Fortunately, we can restore your teeth with all-porcelain dental crowns. Also known as ceramic crowns, these prosthetics provide an option free of metal and other alloys.
Stain-resistant and durable, these metal-free crowns mimic the look of your natural enamel. Once bonded in place, all-ceramic crowns can significantly improve the appearance of your smile.
Since more patients want non-metal crowns, Lexington Dental Group is proud to offer Procera®️ AllCeram. This dense, natural-looking ceramic crown makes your new restoration both beautiful and robust. In fact, the flexural strength of these crowns is two times greater than other all-ceramic options. What’s more, there is little risk for allergic reactions because Procera is made of a biocompatible material, like titanium.
The dentists at Lexington Dental Group can quickly renew your smile with AllCeram crowns using CAD/CAM technology. This high-tech process ensures optimal fit, strength, and translucency.

Compared to other crown materials, Zirconia stands out above the rest. First of all, they are the most aesthetically-pleasing dental crowns. This is because they precisely match the color, size, and shape of the natural tooth. With a Zirconia crown in place, you can rest assured that your restoration blends in seamlessly with your smile.
Also, CAD/CAM technology allows your dentist to meet your exact specifications. As a result, there is less room for error.
While Zirconia crowns are metal-free, they are equally as strong. With proper care, the long-lasting restoration can serve you well for about ten years.
