Do you often find that you avoid laughing or smiling in public because you’re ashamed of the condition of your teeth? Has the condition of your mouth caused you embarrassment due to deep staining, gaps, or chipped teeth? At Boston Smile Center in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson and his team want you to know how easy it can be to get a brand new smile you’ll actually want to show off with porcelain veneers.
Why Should I Choose Dental Veneers?
Hand-crafted of only the highest quality dental porcelain, dental veneers are incredibly thin, durable layers that are affixed to the front surfaces of your natural teeth. They can correct a variety of common cosmetic concerns, allowing you to finally smile with confidence. The most frequently corrected problems include:
- Teeth that are too small or oddly shaped
- Persistent yellowing, staining and discoloration
- Chipped or cracked enamel
- Minor misalignment
- Gaps between front teeth
Unlike many other cosmetic procedures designed to completely change the appearance of your features, the applications of porcelain veneers is simple and relatively quick. In fact, using only the latest technology available in the industry, Dr. Sasson can give you the bright, even smile you’ve always wanted in as little as two visits to his Brookline office. To see how our cosmetic dentistry services have changed the lives of a few of our patients, please feel free to take a look at our smile portfolio here.
If you’ve lived your life thinking that only a series of complex dental procedures could fix your smile, it’s time to see how close you really are to a classically beautiful set of pearly whites. From our office in Brookline, MA, Dr. Sasson happily welcomes patients from Cambridge, Boston, Newton, Chelsea, Somerville and beyond. Contact us today to see how we can give you the brilliant, perfect smile you’ve been dreaming of with hand-crafted porcelain veneers.

In our last post, we started our short series on dental implants by talking about what can happen to your smile when you lose a tooth. Today, we’d like to go beyond that by explaining how dental implants can help you restore your smile.
Enjoy a Natural Smile Again
With dental implants, Dr. Sasson can help his Boston-area patients enjoy a smile that feels and looks completely natural, all because of how dental implants work.
Unlike other cosmetic and restorative solutions, which just replace the crown portion of a tooth, dental implants replace the crown and the root. But this isn’t just any kind of prosthetic root. It’s made from titanium, a biocompatible metal.
Why is that important?
Because it ensures that, over time, your prosthetic root (also known as an implant post) will fuse with the jaw in much the same way as a natural root, resulting in a restored smile that will feel just like the one nature gave you.
Are You a Candidate for Dental Implants?
However, it’s always possible that dental implants aren’t truly the right restorative or cosmetic option for you. That’s why we always encourage any patients who are considering treatment with implants to schedule a consultation visit with Dr. Sasson. During a consultation, Dr. Sasson can complete a thorough exam of your smile before recommending the treatment plan that works best for you.
Call Boston Smile Center today if you’d like to schedule a visit with us, or you can visit our dental implants page to learn more about what dental implants are and how they can help.

When you think about your smile, do you ever consider what effect it might have on your overall health? If you don’t, don’t worry. It’s normal to think of your smile and your overall health as being completely separate.
But the truth is, the human body is much more interconnected than that. When your oral health is allowed to suffer, your overall health can suffer too. In recent medical studies, periodontal disease (also known as gum disease) has been linked with a wide range of health conditions, including:
- Heart disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Diabetes complications
- Preterm birth, and more
All of which is why regular visits to Dr. Sasson’s Boston dental office are so important. Through regular dental exams and cleanings, Dr. Sasson and the rest of our Boston team, we can help maintain a healthy smile that will support your overall wellbeing.
How often should you visit? The answer to that question is different for every patient, but in general, we recommend that patients see us twice a year, or at least once every six months.
Has it been longer than that since your last visit? Then why not call us today? At Boston Smile Center & Laser Dentistry, Dr. Sasson and his team are dedicated to friendly, helpful service that will improve your oral health, your general wellbeing, and your quality of life.
We look forward to helping you!

For more than 100 years, dentists have relied on amalgam fillings to help patients combat tooth decay. Recently, though, doctors have begun moving away from amalgams and towards mercury-free composite fillings, also known as tooth-colored fillings. There are at least four reasons for his.
- They offer superior protection
- They conserve natural tooth structure
- They last as long as amalgam fillings
- They match the color of your smile
If you know you need fillings, consider turning to Boston Smile Center & Laser Dentistry for help. Helping you achieve your healthiest, most beautiful smile possible is our commitment to you.
Call our Brookline, MA office today if you’d like to schedule an appointment with us. During your appointment, Dr. Sasson will thoroughly inspect your smile and explain how your treatment will proceed. If you have any questions at all about how composite fillings work and what your procedure will be like, don’t hesitate to ask. Our hope is that no patient would leave our office with an unanswered question on their mind.
To find out more about composite fillings and the many benefits they offer, visit our mercury-free fillings page. And if you’re ready to schedule your consultation visit, go ahead and give us a call today. Our Brookline office is ready to help you smile again!

No matter what time of the year it is, it’s always a great time to schedule your next regular dental visit. But because April is Oral Cancer Awareness Month, there’s no better time than now if you haven’t come to our Brookline dental office yet for an appointment.
During your appointment, Dr. Sasson can talk with you about how your smile is doing and conduct a thorough oral exam, complete with oral cancer screening. This last step—the oral cancer screening—is one of the most important aspects of any dental appointment.
Because an oral cancer screening could save your life. Many cases of oral cancer aren’t detected until the disease is already in its later stages, when it’s harder to treat. Which is why Dr. Sasson completes an oral cancer screening as part of every regular exam—because catching it early could save your life.
This holds true even if you don’t have any of the risk factors commonly associated with oral cancer. Maybe you’ve never smoked or used another tobacco product in your life, and maybe you rarely if ever drink alcohol. That’s no guarantee. An estimated 25% of oral cancers occur in patients who have no risk factors at all.
Do you want to find out more about oral cancer and how it can be found and treated? Dr. Sasson would be happy to answer any questions you might have, especially during Oral Cancer Awareness Month. Give our Brookline dental office a call today to schedule you appointment.
