    I was a smoker for over 20 years at 2.5 PAD. Most of the time it was full flavor filter cigs, many times I smoked non-filters. It made my teeth have a yellowish tint over the years. I have also had some nicotine stains.

    When I was a smoker, I remember all those doctors and dentists and anti-smoking zealots who would tell me that one of the benefits of quitting cigarettes is that your teeth will get whiter.

    But after over 2 years of vaping and no cigarettes, I noticed that my teeth don't seem any whiter. The slight yellowing is still there. Pretty much the same. It doesn't bother me as I am not a vain person even slightly, but it just came to my mind today.

    HOWEVER, I have noticed that the nicotine stains on the backsides of my teeth are gone. The few I have on my crowns are not, though.

    So I'm just wondering if any of you veteran vapers out there who've been vaping and not smoking for 2 years or more, have your teeth gotten whiter (without the use of whitener products or dentist procedures, of course)?

    With the high popularity of whitener products/procedures these days, I guess it was a pointless question to ask LOL

    Vaping for just over 3.5 years here, I too have only a slight difference in the whitening aspect. I have noticed a considerable reduction in calculus buildup and no more staining, which helps a lot at the dentist. The dentist also tells me my gums look quite healthy now. In general I think vaping has put me on a path of oral health improvement, as opposed to one of constant degeneration like when I smoked.

    LOL. I know people with dentures. No big thing. In fact, in a way I envy them because teeth can be a pain in more ways than one. Easier to clean when you can pull them out and no cavities to worry about.

    Now having them end up in your lover's mouth when you kiss, that's besides the point.

    I can't say I have all mine. I have all the ones you can see, but missing 2 molars and 2 wisdom teeth.

    Being 50, and smoked for 25 years. They're in pretty good shape. I've been vaping for 7 years. My teeth are whiter, and my gums are in much better shape.

    I have noticed no change is my teeth shade and I've been vaping for 2 years. I wouldn't suggest that vaping would make your teeth any whiter. If anything vaping may damage teeth due to flavorings lingering in your mouth.

    I have noticed significant gum damage though, recently for the past couple of weeks my gums have been bleeding, whether or not that's associated with vaping we'll have to see. Nonetheless, we'll have to wait for studies to come out.

    Gum bleeding and gum disease are very common and serious. I doubt it's related to vaping since it's so common, regardless I hope u have the means to get it checked out. Once gum disease reaches a certain point, it's damage is irreversible.

    Never finished a 5ml tank today. Molars on the right side have been hurting like hell today and been fighting a headache. I figure it has something to do with quitting smoking. Don't know if my teeth are any whiter yet. They are cleaner though been brushing them 4 times a day followed by a round of rinsing with mouth wash.
