As we age, teeth can become discolored due to a multitude of factors. Some are preventable, like discoloration caused by drinking coffee and wine, the consumption of certain foods, or unhealthy habits like tobacco use; some are not-so-preventable, like aging or the taking of certain necessary medications. Whatever the reason your teeth are not are white as you’d like them to be, Brookline Dental Specialists’ Zoom! Whitening treatment can help restore your pearly whites. Zoom! Whitening requires just one office visit to complete treatment and you’ll leave our office with a touch-up kit for home use.

For the month of February, Brookline Dental Specialists is offering patients 20% off Zoom! Whitening treatments which means that for a limited time, you can have a brighter smile for less!


Woman with positive smirk on her faceAt Brookline Dental Specialists, we use Botox Cosmetic primarily to help alleviate the pain caused by TMJ or other temporomandibular joint pain, but our AAFE (American Academy of Facial Esthetics)-trained practitioners are also highly skilled at using Botox Cosmetic to target unwanted facial wrinkling or lining. In fact, as dentists spend years studying facial anatomy, they have extensive hands-on experience in targeting the facial muscles they know so well.

Many of our patients even find that Botox injections given by our practitioners are quicker, and cause less pain, than those given by other health care professionals! For the month of February, Brookline Dental Specialists is offering patients 20% off Botox Cosmetic treatments. So whether you are looking to ease the pain in your facial and neck area due to TMJ or you are looking to erase some years from your face, February is a good month to give Botox Cosmetic treatments at Brookline Dental Specialists a try!

Forget wires and other hardware; with Invisalign, teeth are slowly and gently straightened using discreet, clear plastic aligners that are barely visible to others. Invisalign treatment is easy: you simply wear an aligner most of the day, taking it out to eat, and for taking care of your teeth; every two weeks, you exchange your aligners for a new set. When you come into Brookline Dental Specialists for an Invisalign consultation, our experienced orthodontist Dr. Miriam Ghavamian creates a custom Invisalign program just for you. Using our 3D modeling technology, we can even predict how your smile will look after Invisalign treatment. Knowing how great your smile will look after Invisalign treatment ensures you can feel good about committing to treatment. For the month of February, Brookline Dental Specialists is offering up to $500 off Invisalign treatment with Dr. Ghavamian. If having a straighter smile has been a dream, February is a good month to make that dream a reality!

At Brookline Dental Specialists, we know that while the health of your smile is very important, the appearance of your smile is important as well. We want you to love your smile! With our February cosmetic dentistry specials, we can help you achieve your smile goals for less. New patients are always welcome, give us a call today!

Improving the Look and the Health of Your Smile

At Brookline Dental Specialists, the health of your teeth and smile is our number one priority, but we also know that the look and feel of your smile can be just as important. A great-looking smile boosts confidence and self-esteem and often leads to a renewed commitment to overall dental health. In addition, if you are experiencing TMJ, migraine, and sleep disruptions we are here to help you find a treatment that can alleviate your pain and lead to better overall health. At BDS, we are pleased to be able to offer cosmetic treatments that can help you feel and look your best!


As we age, our teeth can shift, resulting in less-than-perfectly straight smiles. Many of our patients also had orthodontic treatment when they were young and failed to maintain results with proper use of retainers. Invisalign is a wire and metal bracket-free alternative to traditional braces. Invisalign therapy consists of custom-molded, durable plastic aligners that you replace every two weeks to slowly and effectively straighten your teeth. Before starting treatment, our orthodontic specialist Dr. Mariam Ghavamian will evaluate and then create a customized treatment plan, complete with 3D imaging of the expected results. Because you can remove the Invisalign aligners, to eat and clean your teeth (or take an in-progress selfie!), Invisalign offers all of the straightening benefits of traditional braces with virtually no restrictions.


Whether you are looking for a full smile makeover, or if you have other dental concerns including gaps, damaged or crooked teeth, BDS offers porcelain veneers that are a permanent solution for a beautiful, confident smile. Our veneers are custom-designed and expertly bonded to the front of existing teeth. Veneer treatment, which involves no oral anesthesia and is virtually pain-free, takes two office visits, but the additional time is well-worth the brilliant, long-lasting results. On average, with proper care and regular dental cleanings, veneers can last 10 years or more and are easily replaceable. An added benefit to veneers is that they are as strong, or even stronger than your natural teeth.

Botox Therapy

Do you suffer from TMJ dysfunction or pain from clenching or grinding your teeth? Pain from the temporomandibular joint can cause headaches, facial tension, and the inability to open and close your mouth comfortably. Botox cosmetic can help alleviate pain by relaxing the facial muscles. Here in our office AAFE-certified Dr. Katarina Torres can customize Botox treatments for these conditions. A dentist is the ideal provider of Botox therapies as they spend years studying facial anatomy as part of their dental training and have extensive experience injecting anesthetics in many of the same maxillofacial areas that are treated with Botox.

Zoom! Teeth Whitening

There are many causes for tooth discoloration, some of which are preventable, like smoking and drinking coffee and red wine; some of which are not, like aging and genetics. Whatever the reason for tooth discoloration, if you are unhappy with the color of your teeth, BDS offers Zoom! Teeth Whitening. Zoom! treatment is time-efficient, requiring only one office visit for the treatment itself. During treatment, a hydrogen-peroxide gel is applied to teeth and then the Zoom! laser stimulates the gel for three 15-minute sessions. Teeth can become up to eight shades lighter in a single appointment. You also receive a take-home touch-up kit to help the effects of your whitening treatment last longer.

If you are looking to improve the appearance of your smile, realign your teeth and your bite, or alleviate nagging jaw or facial pain, Brookline Dental Specialists has a solution that could be right for you. Contact our office today to set up a consultation!

Protecting the results of your orthodontic treatment, and your beautiful new smile will require retainers to maintain the position of your teeth and the alignment of your bite. Our orthodontic patients at Brookline Dental Specialists are loving the new Vivera retainer option
available in our practice. Our orthodontic specialist, Dr. Mariam Ghavamian, and her team of highly trained assistants use a digital workflow to design your orthodontic treatment plan. The software allows us to design customized clear aligners and retainers just for you, and you can even view your ongoing progress as well as the final results before you even start.

Your Vivera retainers come as a set of custom clear trays that are very similar to the Invisalign trays you used to realign your teeth. Your retainers need to be strong enough to maintain the newly created tooth positions. It is important to follow the instructions of the orthodontic team at the office to protect the results of your treatment. Regularly scheduled appointments with your hygienist for cleanings and exams including a check in with our orthodontic team will optimize your overall oral health as well.

For your convenience, your retainers come in a set of four upper and lower. If you only need lower retainers, your set of four will be all lowers. If you lose or break one, simply open the next package. With four sets of Vivera, most patients get a minimum of 4-5 years of wear from their retainers!

Because Vivera retainers are made with the same state-of-the-art technology as Invisalign aligners using 3-D digital imaging and fabrication technology we can achieve an extremely precise fit. This creates a strong retainer with a smooth finish, a firm grip, and a really comfortable fit. Vivera retainers are perfect for patients who have completed their Invisalign treatment because they fit, function, and can be cared for exactly like the Invisalign aligners that you are used to.

Vivera retainers can be an excellent option for patients finishing treatment with traditional braces too! Our digital iTero scanner can be used to scan your teeth while your braces are still in place. Your customized Vivera retainers can be created and ready for you in the office the day your braces come off.

The digital workflow that we are able to use with the Invisalign system is convenient and comfortable for patients who choose to use clear aligners for their orthodontic treatment and then choose Vivera retainers. In a non-digital, orthodontic treatment protocol replacing a broken or lost traditional retainer would require a new impression of your teeth and a subsequent stone model to capture the positioning of your teeth to use for the analog fabrication of a traditional retainer in the lab. It also means time out of your retainer, appointments scheduled at the office, and then waiting for the new retainer to be made. There will be another appointment to pick up the replacement and make sure it fits properly.

Vivera retainers are clear, effective, and comfortable to wear. That means you can wear them with confidence, no one will know you are wearing a retainer but you. If you are interested in learning about the Vivera retainers and if they might be right for you, give us a call, new patients are always welcome in our practice!

In the midst of this holiday season, and with the promise of the 2019 new year rapidly approaching, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our patients, doctors and specialists, and the entire team at Brookline Dental Specialists. Each and every one of you helps to make our office and our dental practice a very special place. I feel lucky when I come to work each day.

We added some new faces this year including Sarah in hygiene, Hector and Sima at the front desk, and Maria our newest dental assistant. Our team of general dentists, pediatric dentists and specialists collaborated all year long finding new and innovative ways to bring complete care, provided entirely in our office, for patients of every age. We have expanded the range of care and services we offer and have welcomed hundreds of new patients into our Brookline dental family in 2018.

Brookline Dental Specialists Logo on a wall Our office got a make-over this year too. To complement the new office location on Longwood Ave in Coolidge Corner we designed a new look and feel for our website, logo and brand. It was exciting for all of us to really think about how we could communicate the quality and values we share as a practice and deliver to our patients. Our new logo, the paisley leaf a global symbol of long life and abundance, along with the tagline “Complete & Convenient Care,” embody our values. It is our commitment to provide our patients and community complete dental care, in one convenient location, for a long life of smiles and abundant health!

In 2019 we will strive to deliver on the promise we make to our patients, and each other, every single day: to be the very best family dental practice in Brookline. We look forward to helping people understand how excellent oral health care can benefit their overall health and wellness. We will continue to provide new and existing patients customized treatment and all the dental services you could ever need including specialties like orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, Invisalign, dental implants, periodontics, and endodontics.

Enjoy the holidays with your family and friends and we looking forward to seeing you and your beautiful smile in the New Year!
