Does Vaping stain your teeth? 

One of the most common questions people always ask when they’re starting out on their vaping journey is; will vaping stain my teeth? To put it simply, no, vaping doesn’t stain your teeth.

There was actually a study done into this, and in this article, I’m going to take a look at the study and go over the results of it, and how it proved that vaping does not stain your teeth.

British American Tobacco (BAT) conducted an investigation study into whether Vaping can stain your teeth and in order to answer the important question of does vaping cause yellow teeth?, the scientists tested cigarettes and a prototype e-cigarette on cow’s teeth. These teeth had been incubated in an oven at body temperature and smothered in human saliva beforehand to create the same conditions found in a human mouth in an attempt to get it as close to a human replica as possible.

The results of the experiment were then presented at the American Association for Dental Research annual conference. That’s a mouthful to say. It was here where the scientists confirmed that during the two week period, the teeth that were exposed to the vapour from the e-cigarette did not stain. Those that were instead exposed to cigarette smoke, showed signs of staining very quickly.

The reason for the yellowing of teeth caused by cigarettes is obviously caused by the tar content found within cigarettes, which of course is not in vape juice.

A spokesperson for BAT stated:

“After the first day, the teeth exposed to the smoke extract started to change colour and over the course of 14 days, these teeth got darker and darker in colour. Even with the naked eye, the colour changes with the cigarette extract could be easily seen after one day. In contrast to teeth exposed to smoke those exposed to an e-cigarette or THP vapour exhibited the minimal change in colour, similar to untreated teeth.”

Optimum oral condition

The results from the experiment by the British American Tobacco scientists also support another study from a few years ago; in October 2017, a study was made into the oral health of a group of vapers that had just made the switch from smoking. 

110 participants were examined at the start of the study, then again 60 days after, and then 120 days from the first examination. Low and behold, the results came back gleaming. They showed that the switch to vaping had vastly improved the oral health of the participants, especially in terms of plaque and gum bleeding.

It goes to show more bad things about smoking cigarettes compared to vaping. The levels of tar and nicotine in a cigarette can not only leave stains on teeth, but also accelerate your risk of developing gum disease and harm your oral health in general.

I’d also not recommend “dual-using” which is smoking and vaping, as this can also lead to the quality of your teeth being affected. Just stick to vaping, it’s much better for you.

Vape69 delivers every time

Both these studies confirm that overall, vaping does not cause yellow teeth. However, it’s important to note that some cheap and poorly made e-liquids contain dyes or flavour colourings that can stain your pearly whites. At Vape69, we use only the best ingredients in our premium e-liquids which won’t cause any harm to your money-making molars.

It’s just another reason why we’re the best in the business.
