How Smoking Tobacco Cigarettes Stain Teeth
The traditional cigarette is filled with tobacco, which has many harmful toxins and chemicals that burn when you light the cigarette up. Some of the dangerous chemicals in tobacco are Benzene, Formaldehyde, Carbon Monoxide, and tar, which is a particulate matter that fills a smokers mouth and lungs every time you inhale cigarette smoke.
Nicotine is the chemical that smokers become addicted to, and it is the tar from burning tobacco smoke that leaves a sticky film on the teeth and in the lungs. This is what causes the stained yellow teeth that smokers end up with.
Will Electronic Cigarettes Damage and Stain Your Teeth
Electronic cigarettes eliminate the smoke from burning tobacco, so there is no tar to stain or damage your teeth. With e-cigs all that is inhaled is a nicotine vapor mist that simulates the feel of smoking a traditional cigarette,
How Do E-Cigarettes Work
The concept of creating a non-tobacco cigarette and electronic cigarettes was initially introduced in 1963 by a man named Herbert A. Gilbert. With the advanced technology we have today, the e-cigarette was invented and offers smokers an alternative to traditional tobacco cigarettes.
The idea is to eliminate the burning tobacco and paper with a device that simulates smoking a regular cigarette. Electronic cigarettes are designed to look similar to traditional cigarettes and give the smoker the experience of smoking, but without the health risks associated with inhaling burning smoke.
Most e-cigs consist of 3 main parts, which are a mouthpiece, heating element and power supply.

- 1. Cartridge – This part is the mouthpiece and a reservoir for the liquid, which is a water, propylene glycol and nicotine mix. The liquid substance may include a flavoring, and the amount of nicotine in cartridges can range from a high content to absolutely no nicotine.
- 2. Atomizer – This part of an electronic cigarette is the heating element, the smoker activates the atomizer when they take a drag and the liquid in the cartridge is heated and turns into a vapor mist that is inhaled.
- 3. Battery – Most e-cigs have a lithium ion rechargeable battery, but some do use USB connections for the power source.
