GETTING THE BASICS RIGHT 

Our headline cosmetic and implant treatments have positioned Springmount Dental & Aesthetics as one of Derbyshire’s premier practices. However, the foundation of our success is the unwavering dedication of our expert team to delivering exceptional dentistry every day. It’s this commitment to high-quality care that keeps your mouth healthy.  Our general dental services encompass routine check-ups (which exceed the routine), comprehensive gum health (periodontal) assessments, oral cancer screenings, digital scans, and much more. 

YOUR DENTURE EXPERIENCE AT SPRINGMOUNT 

Routine oral health examinations (check-ups) at Springmount include a detailed and thorough checklist of assessments and diagnostic tools. This ensures that we thoroughly evaluate your dental health, leaving no stone unturned.

ASSESSMENT

In addition to the teeth, we'll evaluate the surrounding soft tissues such as the cheeks, tongue, lips, and gums. We'll also examine the palate and throat to ensure they are healthy.

TMJ & BITE

We will conduct a comprehensive evaluation of how your teeth align and the function of your temporomandibular joint (TMJ). We understand that even subtle misalignments can lead to excessive tooth wear, pain, and difficulties in opening and closing the mouth.

ORAL CANCER SCREENING

We examine the throat, tongue, and gums for any early signs of cancer. This includes a physical assessment of both the jaw and neck.

GUM HEALTH

Our team of experts fully understands the importance of maintaining excellent gum health. Our dentists or hygienists will assess your gum health at each visit.

TOOTH HEALTH

We will thoroughly check your teeth for signs of wear, decay, and any other issues. Additionally, we'll ensure your existing fillings and other restorations remain stable.

UH-OH! WE CAN FIX IT!

Despite the best intentions, an excellent oral hygiene routine, and regular dental care, accidents can still happen. When the worst occurs, Springmount Dental & Aesthetics is here to provide restoration and repair. We offer hand-carved composite fillings and luxurious porcelain bridges and crowns.

COMPOSITE (WHITE) FILLINGS

Fillings are used to repair teeth that have been damaged by decay, injury, or wear and tear. They are used to fill cavities in the tooth. Modern fillings are made of a composite material that mimics the natural surface of the tooth and can be shade-matched to blend seamlessly with the rest of your teeth. At Springmount, our hand-carved, tooth-colored fillings ensure that no one will know you’ve had treatment! 

BRIDGES  

As the name suggests, bridges are used to literally bridge a gap between teeth where one or more teeth are missing. The bridge is anchored to neighboring healthy teeth to keep it secure. An alternative to a conventional bridge is an implant bridge, which relies on implants to hold the bridge securely in place.

CROWNS

A dental crown is used to restore the function of a decayed or damaged tooth, allowing it to regain its original shape and size, and function like a natural tooth. Crowns are excellent for repairing chips, cracks, and breaks, ensuring the tooth below doesn’t sustain further damage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is general dentistry different to cosmetic dentistry? 
General dentistry focuses on maintaining overall oral health through routine check-ups, cleanings, and treatments for dental diseases, ensuring teeth and gums function properly. In contrast, cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of teeth and smiles with services like whitening, veneers, and orthodontics. Both fields are essential, with general dentistry addressing health and function, while cosmetic dentistry enhances aesthetics. 
Along with the basics (mirrors and probes), we use the latest technological equipment such as handheld X-ray devices, scanners, and intraoral cameras during a routine dental examination. This advanced equipment allows us to provide a thorough and accurate assessment of your oral health.
Tooth-coloured fillings at Springmount are made from plastic resins and fine glass particles, hand-carved to match your natural teeth. They look better, bond directly to the tooth for added support, and are mercury-free, making them a superior choice over conventional silver fillings.
Dental crowns at Springmount are custom-made caps that cover damaged, decayed, or unsightly teeth to restore their shape, size, strength, and appearance. They are used to protect weak teeth, restore broken teeth, support teeth with large fillings, anchor dental bridges, cover dental implants, and improve the look of misshaped or discoloured teeth. Crowns provide a durable and aesthetically pleasing solution for a variety of dental issues.
Gum health significantly impacts overall health and wellbeing because the gums are a gateway to the rest of your body. Poor gum health can lead to periodontal disease, which has been linked to serious health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory infections, and stroke. Additionally, inflammation and bacteria from gum disease can enter the bloodstream, affecting other parts of the body. Maintaining healthy gums not only preserves your oral health but also contributes to your overall physical wellbeing.
At Springmount, dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to crowns on adjacent teeth or dental implants. This restores your ability to chew and speak properly, maintains the shape of your face, and prevents remaining teeth from shifting. Our custom-made bridges provide a functional and aesthetic solution for missing teeth.
