Teeth Becoming Translucent

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Does or has anyone has any problems with their teeth becoming translucent?  Half way down my teeth they are becoming translucent and you can see a slight grey line when you look closely.  I also notice it when taking pictures and the upper part of my front teeth are solid white.

I have noticed this in my teeth over the last 5 years or so. I assumed it was part of aging, but I just did a quick online search and a couple of things came up that could apply. Vitamin D deficiency, which lots of us have or had. The other was acid erosion from acidic foods and drinks. I'm going to get some ProNamel Toothpaste and keep taking my Vitamin D!

I have no idea if it's visible to the naked eye but damaged tooth enamel (and therefore very sensitive teeth) was one of my first, subtle symptoms. I think it's improving, slowly, but I find that good quality sensitive toothpaste really does work if you're having any pain from it? My teeth are more solidly white towards the middle and slightly translucent at the edges but I don't look closely enough at other people's gnashers to know if that's normal or not.

I've noticed this a bit too, and I'm still pretty young (30). I was at the dentist yesterday, and found out the hole I thought was a cracked filling is actually a chip in my tooth! I wonder if having celiac in my teeth-formation years affected their structure? They're super ridgy and constantly staining.

In any case, vitamin D and calcium intake is going to be strict from now on.
