Moving teeth requires the placement of pressure. That pressure shifts the root system of the tooth breaking down supportive alveolar bone tissue. Once the tooth reaches its new position, the bone and gum tissue reattach. No matter how you perform these movements, there will be some discomfort, but unlike other orthodontic solutions, Invisalign may be a much more comfortable solution that limits patient discomfort throughout the course of treatment, especially compared with traditional bracket and wire braces.

For thousands of years, people have relied upon removable dentures to restore smiles following tooth loss, but with the introduction of dental implants, patients are able to choose between removable and semi-permanent smile restoration. In many cases, the choice is clear, but some patients need a little extra help choosing between the two options. We encourage patients to schedule consultation appointments to allow our team to walk through the process, benefits, and drawbacks of each option before making a decision. To find out more before your appointment, visit our dental implant or dentures pages, keep reading, or feel free to give the friendly Boston Smile Center team a call.

Dental implants have become one of the most popular tooth replacement options because they are the only dental restoration that restores the root and crown (visible portion) of the tooth. Because dental implants replace the root structure, they are not reliant on surrounding teeth for support, and the implant posts provide necessary stimulus for bone and gum tissue retention. Innovations in dental implant techniques and technology have made them increasingly viable, and they now have a 98% success rate. When it comes to successful dental implant placement, your Boston Smile Center team works hard to provide the skill and quality materials necessary for a successful surgical procedure, but after the procedure, the success of implant placement is in your hands.

For many patients who struggle with crooked, gapped, or misaligned smiles, treatment often seems just as bad or worse than the current state of their smiles. A mouth full of metal, months with diet restrictions, extra time spent on oral hygiene, and hours in the orthodontist’s chair, may seem like more trouble than they’re worth. Lucky for our patients, Boston Smile Center offers a wide variety of orthodontic treatment options to avoid a mouth full of metal, hours spent in the office, and any other concerns patients may have with traditional orthodontic treatment.

When you see your smile in the mirror or in a picture, are you pleased? Or are there a few characteristics about your smile that you’d like to change? Maybe you’d like a whiter smile, or a smile with teeth that are well-shaped and not misaligned. If this is the case, then you would do well to consider porcelain veneers. Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, has dramatically improved the smiles of many people with porcelain veneers and we can do the same for you!
Porcelain veneers are thin layers of dental porcelain designed to correct and conceal the imperfections on your front teeth that mar your smile. Using his patented Ceramel® technique, Dr. Alan Sasson custom designs veneers that mimic the translucency, color, and shape of beautiful, natural teeth.
When you come to Boston Smile Center, Dr. Sasson will meet with you to discuss your smile goals and assess your dental health in order to address any concerns before beginning the porcelain veneers process. In some instances, Dr. Sasson may recommend teeth whitening before veneers, so that your natural teeth will be as white as your new veneers.
Porcelain Veneers in Two Visits
At your first appointment for porcelain veneers from Boston Smile Center, we’ll need to prep your teeth. This requires removing a minor amount of enamel from your front teeth so the veneers adhere well and lay flush with your other teeth. Because the veneers are bonded to the surface of the tooth instead of encompassing the entire tooth as with a crown, only a small amount of enamel is buffed away prior to veneer placement. In cases where gaps need to be closed, no buffing may be necessary.
While your custom designed veneers are fabricated, you’ll wear temporaries for a short time. Then, you’ll return to our office where Dr. Sasson will bond your permanent veneers and artfully trim and polish them to a perfect finish.
Call Our Office Today
If you’d like to learn how porcelain veneers can give you a new smile, then call Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, to schedule a consultation. Our office also conveniently serves patients in the surrounding communities of Chelsea, Newton, Somerville, Boston and Cambridge.

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.

Have you ever seen a smile with one tooth that just doesn’t seem to fit? Perhaps your own smile is marred by multiple imperfections caused by decay or injury. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Alan Sasson helps patients just like you rediscover healthy, beautiful smiles and improved function with a variety of restorative dentistry solutions, including all-porcelain crowns.
Why Choose All-Porcelain Crowns?
All-porcelain crowns effectively restore function, strength, and aesthetic appeal to teeth that have been compromised by injury, decay, or other damage. The crown covers the entire visible surface of the tooth, preserving it and protecting it from further harm. An all-porcelain crown is custom-crafted from a single block of durable dental porcelain to match the shape, size, and shade of your natural teeth. Unlike crowns that contain gold, silver, or other metallic alloys, all-porcelain crowns look more like your real teeth so that you can smile with confidence.
All-porcelain crowns serve a variety of purposes. Dr. Sasson may place a crown to cover a tooth that has been treated with root canal therapy or cracked due to injury. Teeth that are misshapen, fractured, or otherwise damaged can be repaired with all-porcelain crowns to promote a more uniform, attractive appearance. Talk to Dr. Sasson about your expectations, desires, and concerns during your restorative consultation and find out how the placement of all-porcelain crowns can help you.
Schedule Your Visit Today
Whether you currently have a crown that you would like to have replaced or you are in need of a completely new restoration, Dr. Sasson is here to help. Contact our office in Brookline, MA to schedule your appointment today and to learn more about our broad selection of smile-perfecting dentistry solutions.
