Remove Smoke Stains Around The Teeth

Cigarette smoking stains teeth.

The enamel of your teeth is porous material, much like a porcelain cup. When exposed to stain-making substances repeatedly, stains can build up on your teeth. One of the biggest enemies of a bright, white smile is smoking cigarettes. The tar and nicotine found in cigarettes turns teeth yellow with repeated exposure. Remove cigarette stains from teeth with at-home remedies so you can feel confident whenever you smile.


1. Place 2 tsp. baking soda in a bowl and add enough hydrogen peroxide to make a paste the consistency of toothpaste.

2. An electric, or battery-operated, toothbrush removes plaque faster than a manual toothbrush.

Dip the brush portion of an electric toothbrush in the baking soda and peroxide paste. Scrub your teeth with the paste. Rinse the brush frequently and add more tooth-whitening paste until you've brushed all your teeth.

3. Brush your teeth with the homemade paste three to four times a day, or as often as desired. The hydrogen peroxide helps to safely bleach cigarette stains from the teeth and the electric toothbrush removes plaque that acts as a stain magnet.

4. Wash out your mouth with a plaque-reducing, antibacterial mouthwash.

5. At-home whitening strips remove stains from teeth.

Apply at-home tooth-whitening strips twice per day or according to package directions. Whitening strips have a peroxide solution on them that stays in contact with the teeth longer. Prolonged exposure to the bleaching solution gradually whitens smoke-stained teeth over a period of a few days to two weeks.
