Cigarette usage is on a downward trend in the United States, but there are still plenty of people who smoke another way. According to Loud Cloud Health, over 20 million people in the U.S. use an electric cigarette for “vaping”. With a large part of the population vaping, the question comes to mind, “does vaping cause teeth stains”? Vaping can cause teeth stains in two ways.
Unlike Cigarettes, Vaping does not contain tar, which leads to brown and yellow teeth stains. The tar is continually absorbed through the enamel of the teeth slowing turning white teeth into discolored teeth. Vaping does not create smoke, so there is no worry about tar staining.
However, vaping can still discolor your teeth. Vaping has become such a popular choice among smokers because of the ability to customize what you smoke. Users can select what goes into the vape, and oftentimes nicotine is selected.
Nicotine Stains Teeth
According to the alcohol and drug foundation, Nicotine is a stimulant that speeds up the message response time between the mind and body. It can be found in e-cigarettes or Juul’s as the user inhales it. While you may not be staining your teeth with tar from smoking cigarettes, the nicotine in Vapes can still turn your teeth yellow after repeated use.
Vaping Coloring Agents Stain Teeth
Another way vaping can cause teeth stains is with the coloring agents found in the mix. Vapes and Juul’s come in thousands of different flavors and colors. Just like when you drink grape juice or red wine, your teeth can be stained by the coloring agents found in vapes. Your body has sponge-like features that absorb certain chemicals or substances. When the coloring agents pass through your mouth, your teeth’ enamel comes into contact with potential stains. Vaping in colors of blue, green, yellow, or pink may look cool to you, but if you continue to use those coloring agents there’s potential to stain your teeth those colors.
Just like smoking, vaping is an addictive habit that can discolor your teeth among other health problems. The only sure-fire way to prevent and fight teeth stains from vaping is to quit entirely.
