Fixing Dental Problems in Plano, TX

The following are general dental issues that we can help you address at our dental practice. Learn more about each topic below, and also view our smile gallery to see the results of our dental work.

Chipped Teeth

Repairing a chipped tooth is important for several reasons. A chipped tooth can be an eyesore and affect your appearance, but it can also be a source of pain or discomfort. Furthermore, a chipped tooth can incur more damage because of bacteria and plaque buildup.

Repairing the chip can prevent further damage, alleviate pain, and restore the original look of your mouth. To learn about how we can repair your chipped tooth, visit Chipped Teeth.

Stained Teeth

Stained and discolored teeth can give off an unappealing smile, which can cause a lack of self-confidence. Dental cleanings and whitening treatments at our dental office can help you restore the natural color of your teeth. Additionally, fixing stained and discolored teeth can protect them from cavities and decay. Decay can damage the enamel and even lead to tooth loss.

To learn more about how we can help you address a stained tooth, visit Stained or discolored teeth.

Missing Teeth

Replacing missing teeth can bring many benefits to your daily life, including:

  • An improved ability to eat and speak
  • Prevention of potential jaw, gum, and other dental problems
  • Improved smile appearance
  • Restored confidence
  • Improved oral health
  • Preserved/maintained facial features

The most common and successful options to replace your lost teeth are dental implants, fixed bridges, and partial or complete dentures. Our dentist can help you decide which option is best for you. To learn how Dr. Sowell and Dr. Chen can replace your lost teeth, visit Missing teeth.

Rotated Teeth

Rotated teeth occur when a tooth is out of alignment with the other teeth in the jaw. As a result, the tooth does not fit properly within the jaw or line up correctly with the neighboring teeth. A rotated tooth can make it difficult to keep your teeth clean, as food particles and plaque can become trapped in the tilted areas. To learn about rotated teeth treatment options, visit Rotated teeth.

Broken Teeth

Dr. Mark Sowell and Dr. Sara Chen can fix broken teeth by performing a variety of procedures. These procedures may include placing a filling or bonding the broken pieces together. He may also put a crown on the affected tooth or extract the damaged tooth in severe cases.

The specific procedure you get will depend on the severity of the break. To learn about these procedures and more options to repair or replace a broken tooth, visit Broken teeth.

Teeth Grinding/Bruxism

Bruxism is where a person unconsciously clenches their jaw or grinds their teeth while they are asleep or awake. The common causes are stress, anxiety, and tension. Constantly grinding your teeth can eventually lead to headaches, worn-down teeth, and jaw pain. To learn how we can help you alleviate the symptoms, visit Tooth grinding.

Gummy Smile

Dr. Chen and Dr. Sowell can fix a gummy smile using a gum recontouring procedure or a gingivectomy. In this procedure, the dentist uses a laser to remove excess gum tissue, reshaping the gum line to correct the gummy look.

Our dentists may also recommend a crown lengthening procedure. This procedure involves removing small amounts of bone and gum tissue to make the teeth appear longer. In some cases, we may use injections to relax the muscles that cause the elevation of the upper lip and reduce the gummy smile. To learn about our gummy smile treatments, visit Gummy Smile.

Gum Recession

Gum recession can cause serious dental health issues down the road, so it’s important to fix it as soon as possible. Recession in your gums can expose the roots of the teeth, which can lead to sensitivity and enamel decay. This can lead to the breakdown of the jawbone and the eventual loss of teeth.

In some cases, it can lead to gum disease, which can cause systemic health issues. To learn about how our dentists address gum recession at our Plano dental office, visit Treatment for Receding Gums.

Sensitive Teeth

Sensitive teeth can occur because of a variety of reasons, including enamel erosion, gum recession, and tooth root exposure. Acidic beverages and foods, grinding or clenching your teeth, aging, or demineralization of the enamel can cause enamel erosion.

Genetics, injury, or overzealous brushing can cause gum recession. Fortunately, our dentist can recommend treatments to address this issue. To learn about what Dr. Sowell and Dr. Chen recommend for sensitive teeth, visit Treatment for sensitive teeth.


We understand that a toothache can cause stress on your mind and daily life. Toothaches happen for a number of reasons but are most common in patients with dental infections. Dr. Chen or Dr. Sowell can evaluate your toothache to diagnose the cause and provide relevant treatments. To learn about our toothache treatments, visit Treatment for a toothache.


Halitosis, or bad breath, is a fairly common condition that can cause embarrassment and social anxiety. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to combat halitosis. At-home treatments for halitosis include good oral hygiene, such as regular brushing and flossing, and an antiseptic mouthwash. Use a tongue scraper to remove bacteria that causes bad breath.

In more severe cases, treatments may include a deep cleaning of your teeth and gums to remove dental plaque, and antibiotics. To learn how we can help you get to the root of the cause and provide halitosis treatment, visit Bad Breath.

Dental Cavities

Too much bacteria in your mouth causes tooth cavities. Bacteria in your mouth feed on the sugars and starches from the food you eat. This produces an acidic byproduct that erodes the hard outer enamel of your teeth and causes cavities. Poor oral hygiene can also increase your risk of developing cavities.

Dr. Sowell or Dr. Chen will fix a dental cavity by first removing the decayed portion of your tooth. Then, they will fill the area with a composite resin or ceramic compound. To learn about your cavity treatment options, visit Dental Fillings.

Gaps Between Teeth

Our dentist typically uses one of three options to fix the cosmetic issue of gaps between teeth. We can use dental crowns, dental veneers, or clear aligners. Dental crowns and veneers are the most common treatments we use to close gaps between a patient’s teeth. They involve our dentist placing porcelain or resin over existing teeth to close the cosmetic gaps.

With clear aligners, our dentists can move teeth closer together to create a symmetrical and even smile. To learn about your options at our dental office, visit Treatment for Gaps in Teeth.

Gum Disease

Gum disease can be a serious issue for your oral health. It can lead to tooth loss, severe infections, and longer-term health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. If you do not treat it quickly and properly, gum disease can cause permanent damage to your gums and teeth.

Visit your Plano dentist regularly so that they can detect and address any issues as soon as possible. Not brushing and flossing regularly and not visiting the dentist for regular checkups will only cause more damage. To learn about gum disease treatments at our dental office, visit Gum Disease.

Dry Mouth

Dry mouth is a condition in which the mouth doesn’t produce enough saliva. This can lead to dental problems, difficulty speaking, and difficulty eating certain foods. Our dentist can diagnose and assist you in treating your dry mouth by evaluating other causes of dry mouth.

Dr. Chen and Dr. Sowell can provide remedies for relief and monitor the condition to ensure it doesn’t get worse. To learn about treatments for dry mouth, visit Dry Mouth Treatment.
