Childrens teeth: My son has slightly transparent teeth with some darkening on the surface near the gum line.
He brushes lots, is it a vitamin deficiency? ...Visitor from NE
This is not a good sign.
Translucency, for the most part, cannot be reversed.
If teeth whitening products have not been abused, it suggests possible metabolic or oral health abnormalities that should be investigated further.
The best resource for a "tissue level" analysis of what is going on and why, is a Periodontist. Professional grade remineralization products may help to stem the incidence of transparent teeth.
