Did burning tobacco leave you with yellow tar stained teeth? Let’s chat about that.

CleanCigaretteLogo(1)resizeHello again! Okay, so this week’s topic is coming to us straight from a blog reader’s question. Recently a wonderful blog reader named Linda left me a comment on an older post. She asked a fair question and I feel it deserves an answer.

The Comment:

“Well this blog post is really old, but I am looking for an answer regarding “I’m trying to whiten my teeth, still no success, trying everything, almost. But I was wondering does vaping cause yellow teeth? My teeth were yellow before I started A Clean Cig.But I also don’t want to defeat my purpose by making them whiter if e-cigs causes yellowing teeth also. Thx for your answer. Linda”

First let’s talk about WHY teeth get yellow when smoking.

The yellow stains left behind from burning tobacco are primarily caused by the resin left behind by TAR. Tar is produced through the act of burning, so since electronic cigarettes are not burning, there is no TAR or TAR resin left behind to stain not only your teeth but also walls, clothes, and car interiors. smoking_stains_teeth_whitening

So the answer to do A Clean Cigarette products cause TAR stained teeth is nope. 🙂

Okay but most of us on A Clean Cigarette brand electronic cigarettes were long-term smokers, so as long-term smokers TAR stained teeth is nearly unavoidable. How can we get that TAR stain off though once we have made the switch to the A Clean Cigarette brand of nicotine delivery? I hit the web to find out for you and here is what I have found:

1: Toothpaste

The first thing I found was that there are special toothpaste available specifically created to help smokers battle TAR staining on their teeth. Here is a peek at the ones that came up with just a quick google search:


2: Mouthwash

Much like the toothpastes these mouthwashes are specifically designed to combat TAR staining. Again a simple Google search brought up a variety of available options:



3: Baking Soda & Hydrogen Peroxide

So The main ingredients that are used in the smokers toothpaste’s are Baking soda and hydrogen peroxide. If you are a DIY kinda person, mix these two together until you get a paste and use it just like you use toothpaste.

SIDE NOTE: This can be abrasive so only use it a few times each month so you do not harm your tooth enamel.

4: Just quit smoking TAR ridden burning tobacco!

That’s definitely the first and most important step to a pearly white smile!


Alright, these are a few of the ways you can ditch the TAR stains. There are also a few others available online but since I can not confirm or deny the claims even to a reasonable degree I can not post them here. Take a Google look around for additional Ideas.

I hope this post answers your question, Linda! Thanks for taking the time to ask! Be assured that A Clean Cigarette brand electronic cigarettes is TAR free and TAR stain free! If anyone has any additional questions let me know, I love to help!!

  1. Wow Dawn thx so much! I haven’t had a chance to look at all the products you found. I just recently tried coconut oil pulling, that isn’t working. Making me crazy! Does every ones teeth get stained from smoking tar? Yours looked really white on your blog picture. Well again, thx for your response. Maybe we answered other bloggers question regarding this topic!

  2. My Pleasure! And unfortunately, yes, every ones teeth can get stained with Tar. To what degree and after how much exposure, can vary. The Tar effects everyone a little different.
    If you ever have any additional questions just drop me another comment. You are absolutely right that we may very well help other customers via finding this information out together. You and your questions are very appreciated! ~ Dawn
