In brief: Smoking

For your teeth? Probably.
For your general health and life? Never. Smoking is a known carcinogen and people are diagnosed with oral and other cancers every day. It's your decision and your life. The habit seems harmless to many, until it's too late! if you have seen the lungs of a smoker during an autopsy (as i have), i think you would stop immediately.
