How to Get Nicotine Stains off of Dentures

Updated April 17, 2017

People who smoke and wear dentures normally end up with dark tar stains on their teeth. There are multiple products on the market to clean dentures, but they rarely get the teeth pearly white again. This homemade mixture can help.

Pour enough vinegar into the glass to completely cover the dentures.

Pour 1 tablespoon of baking soda into the glass of vinegar. The combination will fizz and might run over a bit.

Place the dentures that need cleaning in the glass and let them soak for three to five minutes.

Remove the dentures from the glass and clean them with a toothbrush. Make sure you wet the toothbrush before scrubbing.

If all the nicotine stains do not come out, soak the dentures again in the vinegar and baking soda.

Rinse the dentures with tap water.

Tip

Make sure to completely rinse off the dentures or they will retain the taste of vinegar.
