Restorative Dentistry to Have You Smiling Again
Dental implants are an outstanding way to support dentures and other restorations. A titanium post will be surgically embedded in your jaw bone, and performs the function of a natural tooth root. Because it fuses to the jaw, a dental implant provides the absolute best support 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 dental implants to meet your needs, including mini dental implants, All-on-4®, and Teeth in a Day.
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 the gap of your smile with prosthetic teeth that are traditionally held in place by crowns. We also offer implant-supported bridges. Using on-site, innovative technology, we can custom-craft durable, natural-looking crowns for you in a single 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 quick adjustment to existing synthetic teeth. We provide dentures of outstanding quality that fit comfortably. Many patients choose to have their restorations supported by dental implants, which provide the very best denture support.
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 or crown. Using advanced in-office technology, he custom-fabricates thin shells of porcelain that fit precisely with your treated molar.
Dr. Whiteman offers tooth-colored porcelain fillings that blend in seamlessly with your smile. Tooth-colored fillings can be used to treat a current dental problem, or they can replace your old amalgam fillings. Dr. Whiteman applies fillings artfully to give you the beautiful results you deserve.
A full mouth reconstruction might be a good option if you have extensive dental damage or several dental issues that need to be addressed with one comprehensive treatment plan. With a full mouth reconstruction, you can combine several restorative procedures to achieve a healthier and more beautiful smile. Your full mouth reconstruction begins with a thorough consultation with Dr. Whiteman to determine the best combination of procedures to meet your needs.
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.
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 jawbone or an enlarged sinus cavity, Dr. Whiteman can perform a sinus lift to give you a healthy, stable foundation for your dental implants.
