Cigarettes and tobacco products are one of the most notorious substances known for staining teeth. The process of smoking allows molecules of both tar and nicotine to come into contact with our teeth and create stains. This staining can be near impossible to remove through a good dental hygiene regimen alone.
The problem of stained teeth is made worse if you also have a poor diet and consume sugary and acidic food and drinks which weaken the enamel of your teeth, making them more susceptible to stains. Heavily staining food and drink such as a curry or glass of red wine can also be a source of further staining.
A recent study has found that one in five Americans are embarrassed to show their teeth in public and actively avoid smiling or opening their mouth to hide their teeth. Here at Naturawhite, we think everyone deserves the right to smile and feel pride in their appearance.
But I Can’t Quit!
Nicotine is an incredibly addictive substance, which actually is believed to be almost as addictive as heroin in some studies. It’s understandable that quitting is a near impossible task for some people. There are a variety of methods which may help anyone who has decided on taking action to tackle their addiction, including therapy, nicotine containing products and using e-cigarettes. Ultimately it’s a personal decision that each individual has to make.
Unfortunately, even if you do quit, the staining which is present will not just disappear, but you will be able to reduce the accumulation of further stains.
