The practice, led by Dr. Thomas Monahan, DMD, now offers same-day crowns and veneers in addition to its standard preventive dentistry and periodontal therapy treatments.

Monahan Family and Cosmetic Dentistry, which enjoys nearly unanimous five-star reviews from its patients, now provides customized porcelain veneers that allow patients to fix cosmetic dental imperfections – such as gaps, tooth discoloration, and misalignments. A healthier, brighter smile can boost a patient’s confidence and self-esteem.
The technology that enables this practice’s cutting-edge restorative dental techniques is known as CEREC, the acronym for “Chairside Economical Restoration of Esthetic Ceramics,” a computer-aided design and manufacturing system for dentists. CEREC integrates a camera, computer, and milling device into one machine, enabling complete patient tooth restorations in a single visit.
This extremely precise technology not only offers patients fast and uncomplicated restorative work but also dispenses with the need for messy and ache-inducing impressions – a key factor for people whose gag reflex can be triggered by dental impression putty. The digital camera captures a full-mouth image and sends it straight to the computer, where the whole process begins.
Monahan Family and Cosmetic Dentistry creates dental crowns that look and feel like the patient’s natural tooth – as opposed to conventional metal crowns whose metal base and dark edge make them both less comfortable and less attractive. Furthermore, a CEREC crown mimics the hardness of an original tooth, minimizing the impact of regular day-to-day use.
Additional services offered at the practice include pediatric dentistry, tooth extractions, teeth whitening, sleep apnea treatments, bone grafts, and full-service general and preventive dentistry.
Dr. Monahan is a member of the American Dental Association, North Carolina Dental Society, and Academy of General Dentistry. He and his team develop personalized treatments plan for every patient, guiding them through each step of the process to ensure a confident and comfortable experience.
One patient commented: “Dr. Monahan and his Staff always treat us like family. From the moment you walk in the door, smiling faces are everywhere. Nicole is my hygienist and is fantastically gentle, and always keeps me comfortable and laughing. Highly recommend Dr. Monahan, and his awesome staff.”
