Thankfully, it looks like a natural one, the filling cannot be noticed. The staff were kind and extremely helpful. The doctor, Mr. Whiteman has excellent professional skills.

What Happens When an Infection Isn't Treated?

When it comes to functional and oral health issues, time is of the essence.

Dental infection diagram
This diagram illustrates what can happen when dental decay is left untreated. A cavity can let bacteria into the inner chamber of the tooth, which contains pulp, blood vessels, and nerves that run along the root canals. When this sensitive material becomes infected, it can cause great pain and potentially lead to the need for tooth extraction if it is not addressed quickly enough.

Fortunately, our dentist in Brookline, MA, performs gentle, effective root canal treatment on a regular basis. He uses modern tools and cutting-edge anesthetic techniques to ensure the procedure is virtually pain-free. After clearing the infected material from the inner part of your tooth, he can place a new custom dental crown to restore function and appearance, as well as protect against further harm.

Featured Treatment Options at Our Brookline, MA, Practice

Dental Implants

Dental implants are an outstanding way to support dentures and other restorations. A titanium post is surgically embedded in your jawbone to support the restoration and perform the function of a natural tooth root. Because implants fuse to the jaw, they provide maximum stability for your prosthetic teeth. You can speak, chew, laugh, and go about your life with the full confidence that your dental prosthesis will not slip out of place. Dr. Whiteman offers several types of implants to meet your needs, including mini dental implants, All-on-4®, and Teeth in a Day.

Dental Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns are tooth-shaped caps that can restore a tooth compromised by trauma or decay. Bridges, also called partial dentures, are another classic tooth restoration treatment that fills gaps from missing teeth with prosthetics that are traditionally held in place by crowns. We also offer implant-supported bridges. Using our on-site, same-day restoration technology, we can craft custom natural-looking crowns for patients in a single office visit.

Dr. Whiteman is the only dentist in Massachusetts licensed to use Eclipse® dental resin. This unique, light-cured resin allows him to make beautiful, customized dentures onsite, or make a quick adjustment to existing synthetic teeth. We provide outstanding dentures that fit comfortably and stay in position. Many patients choose to have their restorations supported by implants, which provide even better denture support.

Inlays and Onlays

Dr. Whiteman can use inlays and onlays to repair molars that have suffered significant dental decay. With inlays and onlays, he can save more of the natural tooth structure than he might with a large filling. Using advanced in-office technology, he custom-fabricates thin shells of porcelain that fit precisely with your treated molar.

Tooth-Colored Fillings

Dr. Whiteman offers tooth-colored porcelain fillings that blend in seamlessly with your smile. We can treat an affected tooth with these porcelain fillings to repair and prevent further damage. Tooth-colored fillings can be used to replace your old amalgam (metal alloy) fillings. Porcelain fillings are just another way modern dentistry can address your oral health, and cosmetic goals.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

A full mouth reconstruction might be a good option if you have extensive damage or several cosmetic and restorative issues that need to be addressed with a comprehensive streamlined, treatment plan. With a full mouth reconstruction, we combine elements of both restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve healthier and more beautiful smiles. Your full mouth reconstruction begins with a consultation with at our Brookline office to determine the best combination of dentistry to meet your needs.

Bone Grafting

Bone grafting can help patients with bone loss due to missing teeth, periodontal disease, or facial trauma restore their candidacy for dental implants. Depending on your needs, Dr. Whiteman will use bone from another part of your body, a donor, or biocompatible bone grafting material to promote bone tissue regrowth

Sinus Lift

The upper part of your jaw is one of the most complicated places to position dental implants due to the proximity to your sinus cavity. If you have insufficient bone or an enlarged sinus cavity, Dr. Whiteman can perform a sinus lift to give you a healthy, stable foundation for your implants

Best dental experience I’ve had. My restorative dental case was extremely complex, but Dr. Whiteman and Karen spent hours with me in the chair and after business hours working my case. Happy to report that I now have a beautiful smile due to their dedication. Could not recommend highly enough.
