Smoking and Unattractive Stained Teeth

One of the first things others notice about you is your smile. There may even be times when your entire personality will be judged solely by how you smile, especially if you are in the presence of strangers for the first time. The attractiveness of your smile can be improved by your sincerity shining through, but the straightness and brightness of your teeth are considered as the main smile components. If your smile is crooked and/or stained, then you may instantly be perceived as someone unattractive and in worse cases, someone who has an unsavoury character.

Do you have a smoking habit? If you are a smoker, you might want to seriously about quitting this habit for various reasons. A host of medical problems have been linked with smoking and the use of other tobacco products. Some studies say that a single cigarette stick contains numerous ingredients that are known to cause cancer. Smoking can also result the development of an embarrassing bad breath problem.

Another reason why you should consider quitting smoking as soon as possible is its effect on your smile’s appearance. The more you smoke cigarettes or use tobacco products, the more your teeth will be exposed to their staining (and harmful) chemicals. Your teeth will eventually take on a dark brown colour, with darker stains that can settle on the edge of your teeth and gum line. These stains can be removed with the help of cosmetic dentistry at the London Dental Studio, but quitting smoking is still your best defence against this type of teeth staining.
