Missing teeth negatively affect your life in a number of ways, preventing you from speaking clearly, smiling confidently, and enjoying many of the foods you love. Fortunately, modern restorative dentistry offers a wide variety of tooth replacement options, including dentures and partials. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Alan Sasson and his staff are happy to provide patients with the restorative solutions they need to enjoy life to the fullest once again, despite suffering from missing teeth.
Dentures, Partials, and Dental Implants: Which is Right for You?
Dentures are natural-looking, customized dental prosthetics that replace missing teeth so that a patient may eat, speak, and smile more comfortably. Today’s dental technology makes it possible to fabricate dentures and partials in a way that looks and feels more like natural teeth than ever before, but the prosthetics are still removable for comfort, cleaning, and adjustment as needed.
A comprehensive consultation with Dr. Sasson will determine which restorative dentistry solution is the ideal fit for your unique situation. While some patients prefer the structural stability of dental implants, not every patient with missing teeth is a fitting candidate. When you arrive for your consultation, we’ll take the time to discuss your various options, as well as assess your jaw, gums, and existing teeth. You may be able to undergo a surgical procedure that allows for implant-retained dentures, in which dental implants are placed within the jaw and then used as anchors to secure a dental prosthetic.
Schedule Your Consultation Today
We welcome you to contact our office to schedule your appointment with Dr. Sasson and our experienced, knowledgeable team today. Our conveniently located practice in Brookline, MA warmly welcomes families from throughout the surrounding areas, including Cambridge, Somerville, Newton, Chelsea, and more. We look forward to seeing your beautiful smile!

At Boston Smile Center, Dr. Sasson continually strives to provide the very best cutting edge adult orthodontic treatment for our patients. We are excited to be one of the first dental practices in our area to offer the FDA approved PROPEL® technology.
PROPEL® will shorten orthodontic treatments for both braces and clear aligners by almost half the time. This has become a game changer for our adult patients! While each patient varies, many patients are now able to complete their orthodontic treatment in just 3 – 10 months. Even if you have already begun treatment, adding Propel will dramatically shorten the expected treatment time.
PROPEL® works with the patient’s own biology by stimulating the bone surrounding the teeth allowing the teeth to move faster and more predictably into their ideal position. PROPEL® requires few office visits and allows our adult orthodontic patients to see their new smiles faster than ever.
PROPEL® is so versatile that we can include it with our Insignia and Damon Clear braces, Invisalign clear aligner, STb and Six Month Smiles adult orthodontic treatments.
At Boston Smile Center we always offer complimentary consultations, and we include free teeth whitening at the end of your treatment as well as a free water pic during treatment to keep that radiant smile bright. Contact our office today to schedule your complimentary confidential consultation.

X-ray technology has been utilized for decades in the dental industry, allowing doctors to view the intricate internal structures of the mouth in order to diagnose and treat oral health problems more effectively. Today’s more advanced technology, including digital x-rays, gives doctors even more power and precision when it comes to diagnostic and preventive treatments. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Alan Sasson and his team offer digital radiography as part of our extensive menu of preventive, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry services.
Benefits of Digital Radiography
Unlike traditional x-rays that use film and must be developed using harsh chemicals, digital x-rays are captured quickly and displayed in mere minutes on a chairside screen so that you and Dr. Sasson can view them together. Patients who are able to actually see the images captured by the digital radiography machine are more likely to express an interest in their own oral health, asking more questions and learning about the ways they can better take care of their teeth and gums at home. Because everything is digital, there are no developing chemicals to dispose of, so it’s better for our environment as well.
Digital radiography is also superior to conventional film x-rays in that it exposes the patient to up to 90 percent less radiation per session. We always take your safety and comfort into consideration first, and we love that our choice to utilize digital x-rays offers this additional benefit.
Only the Best Technology for Our Patients
At Boston Smile Center, we believe that each and every patient that walks into our practice deserves the best treatment, the most compassionate care, and the most cutting-edge dental technology the industry can provide. That’s why we are constantly upgrading our facility with the most state-of-the-art equipment and technology, and passing the benefits along to you. Contact our office today to discover the advantages of digital radiography and our other patient-centric services, each customized to suit your individual needs and preferences. We proudly serve families from throughout Brookline, Somerville, Cambridge, Newton, and beyond.

It is likely that you’ve heard a fair bit about fluoride, whether on the news or in commercials for popular toothpastes. With the wealth of information available online and on television, it’s often difficult to decipher the truth from the hype when it comes to something as controversial as fluoride. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Alan Sasson and his team offer our patients proven, accurate information regarding all aspects of oral health, including the role that fluoride plays in the state of your teeth.
How Fluoride Fortifies Your Smile
Fluoride is derived from an element called fluorine that occurs naturally in sedimentary rock in our planet’s crust. When fluorine comes into contact with water, it ionizes into what we know as fluoride. It is present in the water we drink and the food that we eat, providing essential structural stability to our bones and teeth.
At your dentist’s office, topical fluoride is used to bolster the strength of your enamel, remineralizing your teeth and protecting them from decay. When the bacteria that comprise plaque produce acid, demineralization occurs. Without adequate fluoride, phosphate, calcium, and other minerals to remineralize the enamel, tooth decay becomes a very serious problem.
As with any of our cosmetic, restorative, or general dentistry services, we invite our patients to ask any questions they may have regarding fluoride and its role in dental health. Our top priority is keeping your teeth and gums healthy and strong for a lifetime of beautiful smiles.

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.

Whether you have old amalgam fillings you would like to have replaced or you are in need of a new tooth-colored filling, Dr. Sasson and his team are here to help. Contact our office in Brookline, MA today to schedule your appointment. We also happily welcome patients from the surrounding areas of Boston, Newton, Chelsea, Cambridge, Somerville, and beyond.

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.
