Do you wish your smile was whiter and brighter? Have you tried various over-the-counter tooth whitening systems and been disappointed? InStyle Dental has good news for you. We offer several choices for professional teeth whitening, to help you achieve the dazzling smile you deserve.
Our professional in-office teeth whitening begins with sophisticated Zoom! technology, the very same teeth whitening system used on ABC’s hit TV show Extreme Makeover. Zoom! Is simple, painless and can be completed in about an hour. The most important benefit of Zoom! teeth whitening is immediate results people will notice.

At-Home Teeth Whitening Maintenance
To keep your new smile looking its best, we offer take-home bleaching trays or professional Crest Strips. While bleaching trays are often used in combination with Zoom! Teeth whitening, some patients prefer more gradual whitening and want to use only the trays to remove discolorations, stains and dullness from their teeth.
Bleaching trays for both upper and lower teeth are created from impressions Dr. Brian Kar will make of your teeth in the dental office. Simply add a small amount of gel to each tray, and place the trays over your teeth for the time prescribed.
Choose the Right Teeth Whitening for You
How can you know for sure if professional teeth whitening with Zoom! or take-home custom-fitted trays are best for whitening your teeth? It’s easy when you visit Dr. Kar for a thorough consultation. He can explain both systems to you, and together you will decide which one will provide the results you seek. Dr. Kar’s expertise and skill combined with ongoing evaluation of today’s most advanced teeth whitening options, will ensure your treatment is always cutting edge.
Some Common Questions About Tooth Whitening
How does professional tooth whitening differ from store-bought whitening solutions?
Tooth whitening products purchased over the counter do not contain the same high concentrations of whitening agents as professional whitening treatments supervised by a licensed, skilled cosmetic dentist. Dr. Kar uses Zoom! teeth whitening technology to produce notably whiter results than any store-bought system can ever provide.
Is tooth whitening costly?
The cost of your teeth whitening treatment may vary among dentists, systems used, and geographical area. Dr. Kar will evaluate your teeth and overall oral health before he recommends the best type of tooth whitening for you. Based on his recommendation, we will be better able to guide you on the issue of cost.
Will my teeth be sensitive after the tooth whitening procedure?
While it is not common to feel sensitivity following Zoom! tooth whitening, it is possible. If you are one of those people who experience slightly more sensation following your treatment, you can rest easy knowing the feeling will subside shortly. While the sensitivity is felt, Dr. Kar will advise that you avoid extremely hot or cold foods and drinks. If your sensitivity stems from the use of at-home whitening trays, Dr. Kar may suggest changes in the way you apply your tooth whitener.
How white can my teeth get with professional tooth whitening?
The whiteness of your teeth post-treatment varies with each individual. Some people are more naturally prone to a slight yellowish or tan tooth shade. Some people have stains or chemical discolorations that do not fade completely, even with professional teeth whitening. This is why it is so important to undergo a thorough oral evaluation with Dr. Kar before deciding on the most appropriate teeth whitening method for you. Zoom! technology can help you achieve a smile that is up to eight times whiter or more, but each individual’s results will vary.
How long will my professional tooth whitening last?
The results of your professional tooth whitening can last as long as three years, depending on your personal habits and level of oral care. You may feel touch ups are needed about every six months. The friendly dental team at InStyle Dental is happy to accommodate your needs.
