In brief: No

Dialysis is a way of filtering out the wastes cummulated in the blood, and renders temporary relief.
Successful kidney transplant can only be a long-term cure for chronic renal failure.

In brief: No

Dialysis only is a temorary measure till a transplant is available.
For people who cannot get a transplant dialysis is the only alternative. However, it is not a cure. It provides for cleaning blood instead of the kidneys.
