What do we do?

Our Croasdaile Dental Arts doctors will create a comprehensive treatment plan customized for your particular needs. Solutions can range from simple crowns and fillings to fix minor chips and cracks to root canal therapy or dental implants.

Metal-Free Fillings

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.

Dental Implants

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

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
  • Bridges
  • 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.

Same-Day Crowns

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

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.

Sedation Dentistry

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.

Oral sedation is easy to take and very effective. It will help you maintain a sense of relaxation before, during, and after your treatment.

Call us at (919)-383-7402 to talk with our experienced sedation dentistry team about options available to you!

‘‘What a pleasure it was to switch to this practice, I really enjoy the personal touches. They sent a nice card after my first visit. My exam was comfortable and thorough, but I didn’t feel like additional treatments were being pushed on me. My calls were promptly returned and they were able to work around my schedule to get me in.’’

FAQs About Comprehensive Dentistry

Get the answers from our Durham dentists.
  • 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.
