How to remove teeth stains caused from Smoking?

Ans. While various factors contribute to the discolouration of teeth, nicotine is one of the major ones. Either smoking or chewing tobacco can make the enamel of the teeth more likely to stain and also cause dental problem as well as medical problems. Prolonged smoking darkens the teeth and leaves tough stains. These stains with time get absorbed deep into the enamel and if ignored, may cause major oral problems.

Treatment:

  • Quit smoking: the best way to get rid of the stained teeth and other smoking related oral problems is to completely stop smoking.
  • Practice good oral hygiene: the most common way to get rid of stains is to brush and floss your teeth daily. Rinse your mouth will help to removing bacteria that causes stain.
  • Hydrogen peroxide: rinsing your mouth with hydrogen peroxide mouthwash reduce the staining.
  • Teeth whitening treatment: These are generally categorized into three categories:
  1. Teeth whitening by dentist or professional.
  2. Teeth whitening at home.
  3. Do it yourself (DIY)
  • Laser teeth whitening: In this treatment, teeth are coated with peroxide solution. Strong light is used to scrub off the stains revealing whiter teeth. It can only be one in professional sittings.
