For many of us, unsightly stains dull the appearance of our smiles. At The Silverstrom Dental Group, we provide the latest in cosmetic teeth whitening. Your Livingston NJ dentists, Dr. David Silverstrom and Dr. Gary Silverstrom, can brighten smiles and explain the little-discussed downsides of over-the-counter teeth whiteners.
Downside of Over-the-Counter Teeth Whitening

While these systems may appear more affordable, the results rarely last as long as professional teeth whiteners. People that use store bought systems also report gum irritation and tooth sensitivity. For dramatic results, consider obtaining professional-grade whitening from The Silverstrom Dental Group.
