Cause of Yellow or Stained Teeth

One must understand that smoking tobacco cigarette, beedi or any other form of smoking cause yellow teeth. But what causes this to happen?

Nicotine is blamed for their yellow teeth from smoking. Oxygen in the air makes Nicotine take on a yellow colour. This is the main reason why people assume nicotine causes yellow teeth. This is unlikely to be the main cause of yellow teeth from smoking. Nicotine is also water-soluble and it is not very likely to stick to your teeth very well.

Tar is the main cause of discolouration among smoker’s teeth. Tar and other chemical residue build-ups on the teeth surface. The Tar then finds its way into the enamel in your teeth and this leads to the yellowish-brown colour associated with smoking.

However, there are a few ways that nicotine itself might indirectly lead to yellowing teeth. This is because it reduces saliva production, but this plays a very minor role in causing yellow teeth from smoking among the people. Hence, people debate a lot on whether nicotine causes yellow teeth.
