Welcome to Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry
In 1997, Dr. Steven D. Spitz, DMD, a Board qualified Prosthodontist, set out to create an environment where patients could have all of their dental needs provided in one office. In 2008, Smileboston moved to a brighter, more expansive office in Brookline and in 2012 a second office was opened in Pembroke. To date, Dr. Spitz has realized his goals utilizing cutting edge dental technology! Working with a highly trained clinical and office team, the entire practice supports Smileboston’s treatment philosophy—treat oral health issues, a mutual esthetic vision, make patients smile and offer all this with comfort at every visit!
At Smileboston Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we believe that creating and maintaining a natural, healthy and attractive smile can and should be a comfortable experience. That can only happen in an open, caring and educational environment, and that is what we strive daily to provide for our patients. Utilizing laser dentistry and conscious sedation, as well as complete dental implant treatment, has allowed Smileboston to become known as the office to be comfortable in and send your friends and family to.
Dr. Steven D. Spitz is a Prosthodontist and Dr. Jay Morgenstern is a general/cosmetic dentist with a passion for orthodontics. Together, they treat patients who come to them from Boston, throughout the New England area and throughout the world. As polished smiles have become the symbol for one’s personal health, financial ability and education, individuals today are looking to obtain that healthy smile, and looking to dentists offering state-of-the-art care.

Introducing Pinhole Surgery to Boston, MA
At Smile Boston the patient is our first priority, and with that in mind we’d like to introduce you to a revolutionary new treatment for recessed gums called Pinhole Surgery Technique. Gum recession is a common dental health problem that affects roughly one in two Americans. The traditional treatment for this condition is soft tissue augmentation, but this procedure can be uncomfortable for the patient. Thanks to pinhole surgery, we can now accomplish the same objective much more efficiently. The procedure is relatively simple: by creating a tiny point of entry in the gums (pinhole), Dr. Spitz manipulates the gums, bringing them down over the exposed tooth roots, fixing them aesthetically and making them healthy. What’s truly incredible is that such a convenient solution can produce such miraculous results. Also known as the ‘Lunchtime Smile Procedure’, you will see results while still in the dental chair. Take a look at this piece from The Doctors to see exactly how it works: Receding Gums Treatment on the Doctors Show.
The advantages to the Pinhole Surgery Technique are numerous. Recovery from the surgery can take as little as 24 hours, rather than the several weeks associated with gum graft surgery. Furthermore, the pinhole technique allows us to address 10–14 teeth at once and the procedure can take as little as 30 minutes. If you’d like to learn more, contact us today!
