Tooth-Colored Dental Crowns

At Shodhan Dentistry in Desert Hot Springs, “dental crowns” are commonly requested from patients who would like to reshape, resize, and/or restrengthen one or more of their teeth. A dental crown, which is also known as a “cap,” can also greatly improve a tooth’s appearance, as it will cover the entire visible part of the tooth, starting at the base of the gum line.

Therefore, many people who choose to have a tooth “capped” opt for a tooth-colored dental crown so that it blends in with the rest of the teeth. Crowns can be made from all metal, porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or all ceramic material. Because an all-metal crown stands out amongst the rest of the teeth, and most patients want to attain the most natural look possible, Dr. Harin Shodhan and Dr. Keyur Shodhan typically restore the quality of a patient’s tooth using porcelain-fused-to-metal, all resin, or an all-ceramic crown. A tooth-colored crown may also be best if you are allergic to metal or have any other reason why you believe a metal-containing crown is not right for you.

At Shodhan Dentistry, which is closely located to the areas of Palm Springs, Palm Desert, and Coachella Valley, our dentists meet with patients who would like to receive dental crown treatment for one or more of these reasons:

  • To protect a weak tooth from breaking
  • To hold parts of a cracked tooth together
  • To restore a severely worn-down or broken tooth
  • To conceal a severely discolored or misshapen tooth
  • To cover and provide support for a tooth that has a large filling with minimal tooth left
  • To hold/secure a dental bridge in place
  • To cover a dental implant


If you would like to learn more about tooth-colored dental crowns and whether or not this type of treatment is the best solution for you, please call (760) 251-2666. Either of our general dentistry professionals, Dr. Harin Shodhan or Dr. Keyur Shodhan, would be happy to meet with you and answer any questions you may have.
