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.

Successful Recovery Tips for Dental Implants Brookline

November 24, 2015

smiling woman happy with the dental implants brookline residents preferDental 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.

Entrust Your Smile to Dr. Sasson: 2014 Invisalign Preferred Provider in Brookline, MA

September 23, 2014

PrintAn 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.

How Non-Invasive Cosmetic Solutions Can Take Years off of Your Appearance

March 19, 2014

shutterstock lumineers smileAs 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.

The Benefits of Laser Dentistry

August 31, 2012

One goal of dentists like Dr. Sasson is providing care that’s more comfortable and more precise. At Boston Smile Center, one way we’re doing that is through laser dentistry. With laser dentistry, Dr. Sasson can use the FDA-approved Waterlase Dental Laser to deliver amazing periodontal care for your unhealthy gums. But periodontal care is just one use for laser dentistry. Others include:


  • Preparing some types of cavities for treatment
  • Relieving sensitivity to hot and cold
  • Performing gum recontouring to correct an uneven gum line
  • Treating cold sores

In each case, patients can look forward to care that’s more comfortable, more precise, and requires a much shorter recovery period. In fact, thanks to laser dentistry, patients can get the care they need without requiring stitches. That’s because our Brookline office’s laser promotes healing as it works, letting you get back to your normal schedule much sooner.

Laser dentistry can’t be used for every kind of service, though. That’s why, if you’re hoping laser dentistry can help you, we invite you to call Boston Smile Center for a visit with us. During your FREE consultation appointment, Dr. Sasson can take a thorough look at your teeth and gums to find out what kind of care you need. Then, once we know more, we can recommend a specific treatment plan to help you out. That treatment may involve laser dentistry, or it may involve something else completely.

Call us today to reserve a FREE consultation. We look forward to hearing from you!

The Benefits of Restoring Your Smile with Porcelain Crowns

August 17, 2012

What happens when teeth become worn, decayed, or cracked? Your confidence and your oral health can suffer. That’s why Dr. Sasson and his team at Boston Smile Center offer porcelain crowns. With all porcelain crowns and fillings, patients from Brookline/Boston and beyond can look forward to having a beautiful smile and a restored sense of self-confidence.

How Can Porcelain Crowns Help Your Smile?

Porcelain crowns let Dr. Sasson preserve damaged or decayed teeth by capping them with a crown instead of extracting them. As a result, your jaw stays strong and healthy even as your smile gets the help it deserves.

What’s more, because porcelain mimics the look of natural teeth, you can have your old smile back. And thanks to Dr. Sasson’s method for creating porcelain crowns, we can deliver something that’s custom-made, that matches the shade of your surrounding teeth, and that fits in with your overall appearance.

What does a porcelain crown fix?

With all porcelain crowns, Dr. Sasson can mend:

  • Broken teeth
  • Cracked teeth
  • Decay teeth
  • Stained teeth
  • Missing teeth
  • The black line around your current crowns

Do you want to know more about porcelain crowns and how they can help you restore your smile? Call Boston Smile Center today to schedule your FREE consultation with Dr. Sasson. During your appointment, he can tell you if porcelain crowns are right for you and recommend a treatment plan.
