Transparent teeth? (photos)
Doctor Answers 2
Thank you for your question! Some transparency on the edges of the teeth is what makes teeth look natural. However, teeth may become more transparent over time because it is getting thin or worn down. This can be due to any number of things including but not limited to how your teeth come together when you bite down, if you grind your teeth at night or the type of diet you have (ie. high in citrus). Talk to your dentist about what you can do to keep your teeth strong. Even a referral to an orthodontist or invisalign may help correct your bite.Good luck!
