Cosmetic Dental Services
Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners to straighten teeth faster and more comfortably than traditional metal braces. Traditional metal braces can pinch the gum tissue surrounding teeth and often have an average treatment time that spans several years.
Porcelain veneers are a cosmetic option that can improve the function and health of your teeth. They can correct teeth that are discolored, misshapen, chipped, cracked, or broken.
Tooth bonding is a treatment option that can help rebuild the tooth structure and lighten the appearance of teeth by several shades. Using a composite resin that is adhered to and shaped to teeth, tooth bonding can last patients for years with proper dental care.
We offer in-office and take-home teeth whitening treatments to patients. Whitening teeth improves your oral health and brightens teeth.
General Dental Services

Patients who require custom mouthguard for contact sports may contact us for a well-fitting mouthguard. Custom-fit mouth guards can be worn during contact sports to protect teeth from damage. Mouthguards can also prevent concussions.
Teeth may be extracted due to overcrowding, extensive tooth decay, impacted wisdom teeth, or periodontal disease. Following a tooth extraction, Dr. Lassiter will recommend restorative and cosmetic treatment.
Restorative Dental Services
Dental bridges can be removable or secured with dental implants to replace multiple missing teeth. Secured dental bridges provide more stability and last longer than removable dental bridges.
Dental crowns cover teeth and dental restorations. They may be color-matched to teeth, depending on whether you chose a restoration with metal, porcelain, ceramic, or another type of material.
Consisting of a titanium post, abutment, and dental crown, dental implants are a secure and durable treatment option for patients. They can also secure dental bridges or dentures, which replace multiple consecutive teeth or whole arches of teeth.
Dentures and Partials
Professionally crafted full and partial dentures are used to replace most or all of a patient’s teeth. Partial dentures fill in the gaps left by missing teeth and is a great option for patients who have several missing teeth but have some natural teeth remaining.
Gum disease, also known as periodontitis, is caused by the infection of gum tissue. Our professionals offer methods to help reverse the effects of gum disease on the mouth.
Do you suffer from chronic jaw pain? Do you find yourself clenching or grinding your teeth? You may have a TMJ disorder. The temporomandibular joint connects the jawbone to the skull, and pain can arise in the jaw joint and the muscles that control the jaw. Be sure to treat TMJ pain as soon as possible.
