An attractive, open smile is an invaluable asset in your personal and professional life, conveying confidence, charisma, and a whole host of positive attributes in a single flash of your pearly whites. If your teeth are crowded, misaligned, or unevenly spaced, you may find yourself hiding your smile in public and in photographs. Fortunately, there is a teeth-straightening solution that doesn’t involve the use of metal wires and brackets: Invisalign clear aligners. Dr. Alan Sasson at Boston Smile Center is a 2014 Invisalign Preferred Provider serving Brookline, MA and the surrounding areas. Our team would love to show you how much of a difference Invisalign can make in your smile and in your life.
Choose Invisalign for a Confident Smile
If you are a candidate for Invisalign orthodontic treatment, we’ll begin the process of straightening your teeth by taking precise digital measurements of your dentition. This data will be sent directly to an Invisalign lab where your custom aligners will be created. When we receive your aligners, we’ll assess your bite to ensure optimal fit and comfort. The rest is easy! Simply wear your clear, comfortable aligners for the designated amount of time each day for a period of about two weeks for each set. As time passes, you’ll graduate to the next set of aligners in the series until treatment is complete. With Dr. Sasson’s guidance, you’ll begin to see your new smile emerge in no time!
Because we want you to begin enjoying the innumerable benefits of straighter teeth as soon as possible, Dr. Sasson also offers Propel Orthodontic technology. This revolutionary solution actually improves the restructuring process within your jaw as your teeth are shifted into their final positions. Capable of reducing orthodontic treatment duration by up to 60 percent, Propel has been successfully utilized with both traditional braces and the Invisalign system. We genuinely look forward to becoming your partners in your journey toward a healthier, more balanced smile with Invisalign clear aligners.

Amalgam fillings, also commonly known as silver or metal fillings, have been used for more than 150 years. As dental technology has advanced, however, these traditional fillings have gradually been eclipsed by a preferable alternative: metal-free composite fillings. At Boston Smile Center & Implant Dentistry in Brookline, MA, Dr. J. Alan Sasson and his team use tooth-colored composite fillings rather than those made of metal in order to provide our patients with the best dental care possible.
Why Choose Mercury-Free Fillings?
There are a variety of clear advantages to the patient when mercury-free fillings are used. The most obvious of these is the aesthetic appeal of tooth-colored fillings. Silver amalgam fillings are dark and unsightly, marring the natural beauty of your smile. With composite resin fillings, you can smile, laugh, and speak with complete confidence. The fillings we use are color-matched to blend seamlessly with the shade of your natural teeth.
Another benefit of tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings is the aspect of conservation. When silver and mercury fillings are placed, the tooth affected by decay or other damage must be altered in order to accept the filling. Composite filling placement requires the removal of far less enamel, preserving more of your natural tooth.
Though the American Dental Association, or ADA, states that there is no danger associated with fillings that contain mercury, many dentists and patients prefer composite fillings because there is absolutely no risk of exposure to potentially harmful substances. In addition, the use and disposal of composite materials presents no risk of harm to the environment, whereas mercury fillings may prove detrimental to delicate components of our ecosystem.

As dental technology continues to advance, we believe that our patients deserve to reap the benefits of faster, more effective, and more comfortable care. At Boston Smile Center & Implant Dentistry in Brookline, MA, Dr. J. Alan Sasson utilizes the power of a highly sophisticated, water/air laser called WaterLase to give his patients the advantage when it comes to performing a variety of services.
The Benefits of BIOLASE WaterLase Technology
The discomfort and pain many patients associate with a traditional dental drill are actually caused by the vibration, heat, and pressure of the machine as it removes a portion of the tooth. With WaterLase, a precision laser does all the work with none of the undesirable side effects. Both soft and hard tissue (gums and tooth enamel) are meticulously manipulated by the laser with less pain, less bleeding, and fewer shots!
In addition, the healing process following WaterLase treatment is substantially improved as compared to traditional methods. Dr. Sasson can efficiently remove only the tissues necessary to treat the problem, leaving more of the tooth structure and gum tissue intact. WaterLase offers unparalleled effectiveness in a variety of applications, including:
- Immediate treatment of cold sores
- Cosmetic gum contouring
- Treatment of periodontal disease in its early stages
- Preparing decayed teeth to be filled
- Relief from tooth and gum sensitivity
Discover the Difference for Yourself
If you’ve ever had a negative experience at the dentist’s office because of painful shots or uncomfortable drilling, you’re certainly not alone. These are common fears associated with even minor dental procedures. Thanks to Dr. Sasson and BIOLASE WaterLase technology, many of the services you receive at Boston Smile Center can be performed without the injections or drilling so many patients dread. Contact our office in Brookline, MA today to find out more about how our high-tech, high-touch approach can benefit you. We also proudly serve residents of the surrounding areas, including Boston, Chelsea, Newton, Somerville, Cambridge, and more. We can’t wait to show you how pleasant visiting the dentist can be!

As we age, our skin inevitably begins to show the tell-tale signs of time. Wrinkles, fine lines, drooping contours and deep creases can make you look years older than you truly are. While plastic surgery is a viable solution for some, we understand that not everyone wants to commit to an invasive procedure to achieve youthful, beautiful results. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson and his team know that your time is a valuable commodity. That’s why we offer the advanced cosmetic technology of dermal fillers and BOTOX® Cosmetic in the same office you visit for all of your dental care needs.
How Can Cosmetic Solutions Help Me?
When skin ages, collagen production gradually slows. This results in looser, less voluminous skin that is more vulnerable to lasting wrinkles and creases. Lips and cheeks lose their natural volume. The most common areas of concern are:
- The forehead and the space between the eyebrows
- The area around the mouth, particularly the creases that form from smiling or frowning
- Crow’s feet at the edges of the eyes
- Fine lines above the upper lip
- Thinning lips and sunken cheeks
Fortunately, cosmetic injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Restylane and Juvederm can help restore your skin’s youthful vitality in a way that isn’t invasive like traditional plastic surgery. Dr. Sasson’s expertise and experience help you reclaim the firm, radiant skin you miss from your youth in a way that makes you feel comfortable and confident.
The Youthful Glow You Deserve
Millions of men and women have already experienced the numerous benefits associated with cosmetic injections like BOTOX® Cosmetic, Juvederm, Restylane and more. Contact our office in Brookline, MA today to find out how Dr. Sasson can help you achieve the smoother, fresher face you desire, all in a warm, welcoming atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. Our practice also serves patients from throughout the nearby areas of Somerville, Newton, Boston, Cambridge, Chelsea, and more.
