Q.

stained

hi there!

I am a happy and successful, :-), nonsmoker.

I smoked for 13/14 years, hence my ''tint'' is not that white anymore. I would like to know if the colour is definitely permanent or if it can fade a tiny bit with time.

Im quite fussy about my teeth, (wish that kept me from smoking) I would like to know if professional help is all that will make a difference? Because Ive got very sensitive teeth and would rather not go the whitening route.

...and Im almost sure my teeth are not THAT yellow anymore after 6 months.

thanks

teeth generally get more yellow with age not whiter. however, the most important thing is you feel that your teeth are not "that yellow" anymore- I would not advise a whitening in such a case.
