dental crowns & veneers

Moore & Pascarella's highly-experienced restorative dentists work with patients to find the right dental treatments to repair and restore cracked, damaged or discolored teeth. Crowns and veneers are two ways we can help improve the appearance and function of cracked, broken, or damaged teeth.

Veneers are placed on the front surfaces of teeth to restore appearance and strength. They're best for minor chips, discoloring and stains, and misshapen or crooked teeth. Crowns are a restorative option that are placed on the tops of damaged or broken teeth to give a stronger, protective and more functional surface. Sometimes, both may be combined depending on your individual dental needs. Moore & Pascarella offers superior care and advanced technology to meet your needs and restore your smile to its original luster.

We're proud to offer crowns and veneers in Redding and Red Bluff office locations.

general information about dental crowns

Crowns, also known as caps, provide a solution to restore damaged teeth and prevent further problems. We offer crowns made with durable materials that can include precious metal, porcelain pressed to metal, and all-porcelain crowns to restore your teeth. All-porcelain crowns are the best option to blend with your natural tooth color to provide an attractive and lasting solution. We can customize the shade of the materials we use to match your natural teeth perfectly and protect them beautifully. 

There are several ways we use crowns, such as improving the color and shape of teeth, rebuilding broken or decayed teeth, strengthening the teeth in the face of chips and cracks, or after a root canal. Once the crown is placed, you care for it as you would the rest of your natural teeth.

general information about dental veneers

Veneers are typically made of a very thin shell of ceramic porcelain, and can protect your teeth from minor chips and cracks. Veneers are the treatment of choice for discoloring, staining, crooked or misshapen teeth. They are useful for making minor corrections in the shape of the teeth and improvements in their color. They provide a smooth, clean and white surface that can be matched to the color of the underlying tooth for a natural look and improved smile. They also can offer supportive protection for patients who have insufficient natural tooth enamel.

Because less reduction is needed in the underlying tooth, porcelain veneers enable the dentist to preserve the structure of the tooth and the procedure is less invasive than crowns. We have two types of veneers, including ceramic veneers and resin based composite veneers. Veneers improve the appearance of the teeth and improve confidence.Like other restorative dentistry work, veneers should be cared for just as you would natural teeth, with frequent and regular brushing, flossing and cleaning.

At Moore & Pascarella, we pride ourselves on using the best and newest technology to make your visit as comfortable & convenient as possible. While many dentists use an impression-based method for producing crowns & veneers, we use high-tech CEREC 3 machines to create and place aesthetic restorations in a single session, rather than multiple appointments. This is much easier on the patient, cutting down on the time it takes to get a crown or veneer and eliminating the need for a temporary to be placed and removed. Our high tech CEREC machine provides a strong and stable restoration to create a natural appearance and improved durability. Plaque-resistant ceramic materials are used to preserve more of your healthy tooth. When you replace old metal dental materials with porcelain, your smile will be restored in only about an hour.
