Q.

smoking spoiling my teeth?

I have a healthy set of teeth. I started smoking about 6 years ago. As with most smokers; it has caused a yellowish layer ( plaque). Can you advise preventive measures for this. I do visit my dentist every 6 months. I would like to know what I can do on a daily basis to improve the state of my teeth.

If you brush and floss as you should ,there's not much else you can do to prevent the plaque from building. Smoke is a major contributor to the build up of plaque and stains of teeth, and my advice would be to try and stop smoking.- It will save you money too :)
