CrownsCrowns are cosmetic restorations which are generally used when a tooth is partially worn, broken, or decayed. Crowns are also an effective way to seal a tooth that has had a root canal or filling in the past, to prevent bacteria from reaching that tooth. The crown is bonded onto an existing tooth, and will cover the entire surface providing strength and an aesthetically pleasing look. Unlike a filling which is restored completely within the patient’s mouth, a crown is fabricated in a dental lab from your unique tooth impression. Once the crown is placed, the dentist does any sculpting necessary to insure your bite functions and feels normal.


A “bridge” does just that. It bridges the gap where one or more teeth are missing. The bridge is bonded to your natural teeth on either side of a missing tooth, and replaces that missing tooth with an artificial one that looks and feels natural. The success of a bridge is dependent on its foundation, so maintaining the health or your natural teeth and gums where the bridge is attached is important.


In my lifetime I have been to many dentists. All of these were cookie-cutter replicas of each other. I expected Devoted Dentistry to be the same as all the others. I was very surprised by my first contact with Dr. Dillingham and his staff. The receptionists were genuinely friendly, caring, and eager to hear what I wanted to say about my dental problem. That response was a first for me.

Everyone else in the office, especially Dr. Dillingham and his assistant, were equally warm and professional. They were very eager to hear about my problem. I had no misgivings about the competence of these two front line staff people.

On a scale of 1-10, I would rate this experience as a 10+! All my questions, insurance issues, pain management, and the procedure itself were handled with great patience and promptness. If you are looking for a superior dentist and staff, I highly recommend Devoted Dentistry. You will not be disappointed!
