I’ve been hearing about Zoom Whitening. Do I need to go to a cosmetic dentist for that or can my normal dentist do it?

A lot of people don’t realize there isn’t a speciality in cosmetic dentistry. All cosmetic dentists are really just regular general dentists who enjoy doing cosmetic work. So, to answer your question, yes, a general dentist can do Zoom Whitening, though some prefer other brands..
However, that doesn’t mean your dentist can do zoom whitening. Zoom is a brand, that requires special equipment. If your dentist doesn’t have that, then there is no way for him to do the procedure.
That doesn’t mean you can’t have your teeth whitened professionally. In fact, I can’t recall a dentist who doesn’t do take home teeth whitening. It’s a very easy procedure and extremely effective. Plus, you control how much whitening you want done.
