Frequent tobacco users are likely aware of the potent staining power of tar, and other chemicals in tobacco products. At the same time, occasional tobacco users can experience significant dental stains on their front teeth.

Some individuals struggling with tobacco stained teeth are tempted by the invasive marketing messages used by retail tooth whitening products. Yet these options are often ineffective and prove frustrating for dealing with significant dental stains. When used excessively these products could potentially harm tooth enamel and irritate soft oral tissues.
