Teeth stains are a common, and often embarrassing, issue. In fact, every year Americans spend over 1.4 billion dollars on over-the-counter teeth whitening systems. Unfortunately, these systems rarely offer the same results as professional cosmetic treatments. At The Silverstrom Group, we offer an array of options for removing or masking discoloration. In today’s blog, your Livingston dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, use a fun quiz to explain how our cosmetic techniques can boost the beauty of your smile.
