Cosmetic Dentistry in Durham

Your Smile is Our Passion - Let’s Make it Beautiful!
Look and feel your best with a smile design by our Durham, NC dental team! Today’s advanced treatments in cosmetic dentistry allow our talented dental team to help you achieve a brand new smile that is healthy, confident, and naturally stunning.
What can you expect?
Smile design begins with a thorough consultation with one of our expert dentists. Together, you’ll discuss your smile concerns and desired outcome. Through careful consideration of your facial characteristics and personality traits, your dentist will strategically compose a detailed plan designed to enhance your smile in just the way you envision.
Just as no two fingerprints are the same, no two smile design treatments will be the same. Your smile design may include few or many cosmetic treatments, depending on your unique needs. It could include:
- Zoom! teeth whitening
- Dental implants
- CEREC same-day crowns
- Porcelain veneers
- As well as other possible treatments
Whatever needs to be done to help you accomplish your perfect smile can be completed right in the comforts of our dental office.
You can trust our cosmetic dentistry in Durham. With the help of our high-quality dental labs, feel confident that your cosmetic enhancement is designed from the finest materials and created to blend with your traits in the most beautiful, natural way possible.
Porcelain Veneers are an almost instant solution to perfecting smile flaws. If you’re hiding:
- Tooth discoloration
- Chips or cracked teeth
- Crooked teeth
… then porcelain veneers may be an option for you! Porcelain veneers not only whiten, brighten, and enhance the shape of your teeth; they have the ability to transform the entire appearance of your smile.
What is a porcelain veneer in Durham, NC?
A porcelain veneer is an ultra-thin shell designed of ceramic porcelain materials, beautifully crafted by a skilled dental lab to fit your smile perfectly. When artistically placed by our dentists, the veneer is like a veil, permanently covering the tooth imperfections you worry about.
What can you expect?
At Croasdaile Dental Arts, our experienced dentists can help you transform your smile using porcelain veneers in just a few office visits. During the first visit, you and your dentist will discuss your smile concerns and an evaluation will be completed. Your dentist will consider all aspects of your smile, taking into consideration the shape and color of your teeth, as well as facial characteristics, including:
- The shape of your face
- Eye color
- Hair color
- Skin tone
- And much more
This careful discussion and analysis is what helps our dentists put their expertise to work, finding the best shape and color for your veneers that will leave you with a lasting, beautiful smile that looks truly natural.
Once you and your dentist decide upon a plan for your porcelain veneer treatment, we will begin by preparing the teeth, followed by an impression which will be sent to the dental lab that will custom design your veneers. Your veneers will be carefully bonded to the front of your teeth at a follow-up appointment.
It’s a known fact that white teeth have the ability to portray confidence, health, good hygiene, and youthfulness. We proudly offer solutions to create brighter, whiter smiles, including teeth whitening for our Durham patients.
In our office, we offer several teeth whitening solutions to create the results and convenience for the individual patient.
Zoom! Teeth Whitening for Durham

Using safe technology, Zoom! can power up your smile up to eight shades in less than an hour. Imagine you can get a brighter smile in just one appointment for you to show off to the world.
Take-home kits and whitening strips
For those who are not in a rush but would like to see great improvement in the brightness of their smile, we also provide take-home kits and professional whitening strips. A take-home kit will include a customized tray and whitening solution. The trays can be worn comfortably for a set amount of time determined by the dentist when it’s convenient for you. Professional whitening strips are a low-cost alternative that is stronger than what you will find at your local drugstore.
Talk to our dentists to discuss your cosmetic dentistry options to see if professional teeth whitening is right for you.
Do you have gaps or oddly shaped teeth that impact the attractiveness of your smile? Dental bonding is an easy, conservative way to enhance the appearance of the teeth. It can be used to repair chips and cracks of the teeth or to correct alignment in a way that looks completely natural.
Bonding is a minimally-invasive treatment that allows our dentists to make over smiles while conserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. Bonding usually requires very minimal preparation of the tooth and the bonding material adheres strongly to the tooth.
Do you have crooked teeth? It is possible to achieve a straight, beautiful smile without metal brackets and wires. Invisalign® is the modern alternative to braces where you can straighten your smile with clear, removable aligners.
What does that mean?
- The aligners are removable, so you can eat and drink your favorite foods. Also, you can brush and floss normally without damaging your oral health.
- Invisalign® is virtually invisible. Since the aligners are clear, hardly anyone will notice you’re receiving orthodontics treatment to fix crowding and shifting teeth.
- The aligners are smooth and comfortable to wear, making it a breeze to achieve a straighter smile. In the end, you’ll have a beautiful smile you’ll absolutely adore!
Is Invisalign® right for you? Contact our Durham dentists for an Invisalign® consultation today!
