I have some stains on my dental crowns. Do you think it could be because I smoke? Is there anything I can do about them?

Smoking does cause staining on your teeth, so it is very possible this is where your stains are originating. There are two ways to combat this. I recommend doing both. First, your dentist can remove the stains on your dental crowns using a porcelain polish with a superfine diamond grit. Then, to help with new surface stains you could use a cosmetic toothpaste such as Supersmile on a daily basis.
