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.

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.

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.

If you’re missing one or more teeth, particularly if there are visible gaps in the front, it’s likely that you’re more than a little uncomfortable with showing off your smile. Lost teeth not only affect your appearance and self-confidence, but can also contribute to more serious oral health problems if left untreated. At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson and his caring staff help patients just like you reclaim their complete, beautiful smile with permanent dental implants.
Replacing Teeth with Dental Implants
When a tooth is removed from the oral cavity, whether by force of injury, gum disease or via professional dental procedure, it leaves behind an empty space and an unstable section of jaw. In the absence of the missing tooth’s stability, surrounding teeth begin to drift and jaw bone can begin to deteriorate over time. Patients with missing teeth also tend to have a higher risk of developing periodontal disease, a condition that can negatively affect other parts of the body.
With advanced dental implants from Boston Smile Center, Dr. Sasson replaces your lost tooth with a sturdy, natural-looking prosthetic tooth, restoring stability to the jaw and keeping other teeth in their proper place. First, a tiny titanium post is implanted into the jaw bone, serving as an anchor for the tooth-colored crown that is to serve as your new permanent tooth. You care for your implant in the same way you would your natural teeth – brushing, flossing and visiting Dr. Sasson’s office for routine cleanings.
Reclaim Your Smile Now
Don’t let missing teeth hold you back for another day. Contact our Brookline, MA office now to schedule your free consultation with Dr. Sasson to find out how dental implants can fully restore your beautiful smile.
