Chapel Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is a full service dentist office that offers many dental services and procedures. We are family friendly and can treat patients of all ages. Our office is led by Dr. James Furgurson who focuses on preventive dental care to help patients maintain healthy, functional smiles. To meet the needs of growing smiles, our dental practice also specializes in advanced cosmetic dentistry and restorative dental treatments. We are located in Chapel Hill but serve patients from many surrounding communities including Durham, NC.
Maintaining A Healthy Smile
The main goal of general dentistry is to keep smiles healthy with preventive dental care. We recommend that our patient’s schedule at least two dentist appointments per year, about every six months.
At these regularly scheduled visits, your teeth will be cleaned to remove excess plaque and tartar. Our registered dental hygienists can reach tooth surfaces that are often missed with daily tooth brushing and flossing. Regular teeth cleanings are vital to preventing diseases and tooth decay.
At each visit to our Durham area dentist office, we will also perform a full dental exam to evaluate the condition of your teeth, gums, and jaw. Dental x-rays are taken when necessary and we will screen for any issues such as gum disease, cavities, and any signs of underlying oral health issues. The experienced dental staff will provide education on proper oral care techniques for all patients and the importance of preventive care for lifelong dental health.
Treating dental concerns in the early stages often means that conservative treatment can successfully restore your oral health. Most oral health problems are preventable with routine dental care and good oral hygiene.
Chapel Hill Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is able to meet the oral health needs of patients at any age. This means we see children and your entire family can get a checkup in one visit at one location. Children who are treated by the same people that treat their parents may experience less anxiety.
Dr. Furgurson and Dr. White recommend bringing your child in for the first appointment when their primary teeth begin erupting. This allows us to monitor the development of their teeth and the structure of their bite, offering corrective treatment when necessary. It is also important for them to be comfortable in a dentist office setting and become familiar with our staff.
