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.
“I’ve had such a positive experience getting CROWNS of all things. The cleaning and first visit were warm and easy. I was told that I needed more work which is never a surprise for me and both the temporary and permanent crown placements were as painless as possible. The doc and his team make you feel like you’re part of the care team. They gave me options for how to proceed and walked me through each step. I really appreciate how the staff talks to each other too- the doc says thank you and great job to the folks working with him regularly. I’ve had a bunch of dentists (I move a lot), and can confidently say that this is a great practice. I’m very happy to have found them!”- Morgan
