Fillings are among the most conventional ways to restore teeth damaged by cavities. Metal-free fillings are composed of a composite resin material that bonds strongly and blends naturally with the tooth structure. A metal-free filling requires minimal preparation of the natural tooth, making it a more conservative restoration.
Before & After Cases
At Croasdaile Dental Arts, we believe in providing dental treatments that add strength and improve longevity of the health and appearance of smiles in the most minimally-invasive way possible.
There’s no need to hide your smile! Dental implants in Durham, NC from our practice are the premier option to replace missing teeth.
What are dental implants?
The dental implant process consists of two steps:
- Our talented dentists will expertly place a titanium post within the jawbone, which mimics the natural tooth root.
- Once healed, we will place the abutment and restore the crown, blending seamlessly with your natural smile.
We place dental implants right in the office.
In the past, the only way to replace missing teeth was with the use of a denture or bridge. Dental implants surpass multiple advantages compared to bridges or dentures.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- They do not require invasive work on adjacent teeth.
- Implants do not rely on additional support.
- They look and feel like your natural teeth.
- They’ll stay in place – no slipping, sliding, or clicking like poor-fitted dentures.
- Implants restore appearance and mouth function.
- They preserve your jaw’s bone health.
Don’t live the rest of your life with a troubled smile full of pain and malfunction. Implants are the solution! Visit our dental implant page to learn more.
Full mouth rehabilitation is a detailed plan of restorative dental treatments designed to create a smile that is functional, aesthetic, and long-lasting. Comprehensive dental treatment can be used to correct orthodontic problems, tooth defects, and years of neglect or abuse.
What can I expect with this procedure?
A full mouth rehabilitation treatment plan requires a carefully thought-out planning process. Our dentists will carefully analyze the health and function of your smile first, and aesthetics will naturally flow from there. This will include:
- Proper bite function
- Periodontal health
- Damage to any of the tooth structure
Any restorative or cosmetic dental treatments needed to repair your smile to its fullest will become a part of your individualized treatment, and may include:
- Dental implants
- Same-day crowns
- Metal-free fillings
- Root canal therapy
- Porcelain veneers
Your treatment plan can be completed in phases to maximize comfort as well as insurance benefits. Our dentists take the time to discuss your questions and concerns before any treatment begins. For those who need further relaxation, we offer sedation dentistry.
Dental bridges are great for anyone who is not a candidate for dental implants or is looking for the most cost-effective solution for tooth replacement. When dental implants aren’t an option, replacing teeth with a bridge can be a great benefit in the following ways:
- Revitalizes smile appearance and looks natural
- Improves ability to eat, chew, and speak
- Corrects bite
- Guards remaining teeth against periodontal disease, tooth decay, and bone loss
- Prevents remaining teeth from malocclusion (improper bite)
- Provides strength to facial muscles
Our dental bridges in Durham are designed of high-quality materials and are custom-crafted to meet each individual patient’s needs for functionality and appearance.
Our Durham dentists provide comfortable root canal therapy that preserves the health of an infected tooth, vastly reducing its risk of being lost.
When do you need root canal therapy?
A root canal in Durham may be needed when the pulp of the tooth becomes infected due to decay or injury. During treatment, the infected tissue is removed and the deep canals of the tooth are cleaned, sterilized, and filled with a rubber-like material. Once the process is complete, the tooth will be capped with a natural-looking dental crown. This will protect the tooth from future infection, restoring its strength and function.
Is it painful?
Too often, root canal therapy is thought to be a painful procedure that many dread. In our dental office, this couldn’t be farther from the truth. Our dental team is skilled in all of the latest techniques that make root canal therapy virtually pain-free, making sure that you are completely numb before treatment begins. If you are especially nervous about treatment, sedation dentistry may be an option. Beyond anything, the discomfort of an abscessed or infected tooth far outweighs the treatment process itself.
Sometimes a tooth is fractured, severely damaged by decay, or has a filling so large that it can’t be restored using a standard filling or onlay. In these situations, your best option might be to restore your tooth with a dental crown in our Durham, NC office. Crowns are used to strengthen and protect the remaining tooth structure or restore the aesthetic appearance of a smile.
In the past, it took multiple appointments to fit and fabricate a crown with your smile. With our constant lookout for the latest technology advances, we’re proud to introduce same-day dentistry with our CEREC machine. This revolutionary technology allows us to craft your crown or other restorations in just one appointment. This means:
- Faster, stronger permanent crowns
- No more temporaries
- Less time in the dental chair and more time to yourself
Do you experience dental fear? You are not alone! For some, this fear is so profound it keeps them from getting needed dental care. Sedation dentistry allows you to get dental treatment while remaining relaxed and comfortable the entire time.

Endodontics (root canal therapy) is necessary when decay in a tooth reaches the tooth root. To save the tooth from an extraction, we must clean out the harmful bacteria and seal the tooth to protect it from any further infection. Then, a dental crown is used to restore the strength and health of the tooth. This beautiful restoration will be created to look like your natural tooth, restoring your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence again!
At Croasdaile Dental Arts, we’ll ensure your endodontics procedure is painless and comfortable. Contact us today to schedule a comprehensive exam.

FAQs About Comprehensive Dentistry
Is there a natural solution for bad breath?
Many people resort to over-the-counter mouthwashes to deal with bad breath (halitosis), but many of these contain alcohol and can dry out the mouth. In turn, this can contribute to bad breath.
There are halitosis remedies by using natural ingredients found at home. You can read and try these six at-home solutions in our blog.
However, if you experience persistent bad breath, this could be a sign of active gum disease. This condition requires immediate attention and treatment since this can result in bone and tooth loss. We encourage you to make an appointment with one of our expert dentists to protect your oral health and smile.
