Cosmetic Dentistry at Brookline Dental Specialists: Veneers and Botox Cosmetic

The cosmetic dentistry services offered at Brookline Dental Specialists can transform your smile and improve your quality of life. Cosmetic treatments, like veneers to enhance the appearance of your smile and Botox cosmetic to manage pain from TMJ, or reduce facial lining are effective cosmetic treatments that we offer right in our Brookline office!


Veneers are just one of the cosmetic dental treatments that can improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile. Our porcelain veneers enhance the look of your smile by replacing damaged teeth, closing unwanted gaps between teeth, or altering the shape or color of your

Veneer treatment is a relatively simple procedure. We work with you to create a custom veneer treatment plan that addresses your individual smile goals. Using digital scanning technology, we can show you what to expect from the finished results ahead of the actual procedure!

Veneer treatment takes two office visits to achieve stunning results. At your first appointment, our dentist will trim a tiny amount of enamel off your teeth, creating the appropriate surface and space for optimal for veneer placement.

We then take impressions of your teeth that are sent to a professional lab to create veneers that fit perfectly and precisely match the shade of your surrounding teeth. Temporary veneers are placed on the teeth until your permanent veneers are ready.

Once your custom veneers have been created, they are permanently placed at a second appointment. Before permanently placing your veneers, we carefully examine the exact placement of the veneers to ensure a perfect fit. The final step is the bonding of the veneers to result in your new and improved smile. With proper care and regularly scheduled dental cleanings, our veneers can give you a beautiful smile for many years.

Botox Cosmetic

If you suffer from TMJ dysfunction, or pain in your jaw and neck from clenching or grinding your teeth, Botox Cosmetic can help alleviate that pain. Botox Cosmetic injections target and relax the specific muscles in your face, neck and shoulders that are causing your discomfort.

Our AAFE-certified dentist, Dr. Katrina Torres, is uniquely qualified to address these conditions. As part of her dental training, she has spent years studying facial anatomy and injecting anesthetics into maxillofacial structures, allowing her to exactly target the sources of pain or discomfort, increasing the effectiveness of Botox Cosmetic treatments.

This intensive training also allows Dr. Torres to offer superior Botox Cosmetic treatments for the reduction of facial lining and wrinkling. This treatment is done right in our office by Dr. Torres, who can skillfully target the specific muscles that cause lining as you age.

In addition to veneers and Botox Cosmetic treatments, Brookline Dental Specialists has other cosmetic treatments available to help you achieve the beautiful smile you deserve! From same-day whitening to Invisalign aligners, we encourage you to book a smile consultation to learn more about how BDS can transform your smile!

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!
