When it comes to whitening teeth, there are many choices. Dr. Sowell has selected Zoom Whitening for his Plano, TX dentist office because it offers patients the best results with the least amount of time. The best option for teeth whitening generally involves a higher investment but generates more comfortable, consistent and long lasting results.
Cheap teeth whitening solutions require more work and generate much poorer results.
Dr. Sowell has found that ZOOM! plus in-office treatment combined with custom trays and desensitizing solutions is our premier lightening program, offering the quickest, most profound and longest-lasting results. Once the initial results from ZOOM! plus are achieved in-office, the custom trays allow the patient to continue to lighten or renew with touch-ups at home, keeping the results from fading years down the road.
The advantages of ZOOM! whitening include:
- No messy trays to wear

We also offer home bleaching with custom trays containing varying concentrations of whitening solutions as well as the most economical prefabricated liners and solutions. As with all our services, the best solution is recommended for each patient’s goals and needs.
Sometimes teeth whitening is not enough to remove the stains from their teeth. For these patients, Dr. Sowell offers tooth bonding and porcelain veneers. Cosmetic tooth bonding is an affordable solution that can hide many imperfections on the teeth including stains.
A composite resin material is placed directly on the tooth and sculpted into the necessary shape. It can be colored matched to blend in with the rest of your natural teeth. This is not a permanent solution but can last many years with proper oral hygiene.
The other more expensive and permanent option is porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers are thin shells that are permanently bonded to the front of the tooth. They will hide any tooth imperfection especially yellow, stained or discolored teeth. They are highly stain resistant so there is no more worrying about stained teeth.
Dr. Mark Sowell is a cosmetic teeth-whitening dentist who is also experienced in the latest laser teeth-whitening techniques and understands teeth-whitening laser technology. Dr. Sowell practices general, family, sedation and cosmetic dentistry. We are conveniently located in Plano, Texas to service the greater Southlake County communities.
Teeth Whitening FAQs
Can I whiten dental restorations like veneers or crowns?
No, traditional teeth whitening will not work on dental restorations. Most modern dental restorations are made with highly stain-resistant materials that do not easily stain. Using mouthwash every day and fluoride toothpaste can help deter stains from accumulating on your teeth and restorations.
Will teeth whitening leave me sensitive to hot and cold foods?
The teeth whitening procedure removes surface stains and can leave your teeth temporarily sensitive. This is normal and will go away after a couple of days. Fresh tooth enamel is exposed and that’s why you experience sensitivity. all you have to do is avoid really hot or cold foods for a short period of time.
Is teeth whitening treatment permanent?
No. All teeth whitening treatments, weather done at the dentist or not, are not permanent. You will need routine treatment if you want to keep your teeth perfectly white for a long time. Diligent brushing, flossing, using mouthwash, and visiting the dentist will ensure that your treatment will last longer and need less followup treatments.
