Floor issue removing pine slithers

I had my pine floorboards professionally sanded and the gaps filled in with pine slithers. I now hate the look with the filled in slithers - can these be removed? I feel so stupid as I agreed to get them done like this and it was also very expensive.

"Good evening.
Yes they can be removed. Larch wood slithers might have been a better option to use. With pine it expands over time and will create a lip. Hope this helps.
Kind regards,
Sean @ Dms"

"I believe that it would be cheaper to consider other flooring to go on top of the existing one. Have you considered that as an option at all?"
