Reasons and treatment of translucent teeth

Our teeth are naturally white. However, over time, our teeth become affected by foods, drinks and other habits. Here are the reasons why your teeth seem translucent.

Key takeaways:

– Erosion of enamel, a hard layer that protects teeth, can result from harmful stomach acids.

– Teeth grinding can also harm tooth enamel.

– Overexposure to fluoride as a child can cause white spots on teeth that may be translucent.

– Lack of appropriate minerals can damage enamel and cause translucent teeth over time.

Tooth sensitivity, teeth changing color (becoming darker or translucent), or changing texture. As your enamel wears away, your teeth are also more susceptible to decay. Since enamel protects your teeth, a lack of healthy minerals or enamel hypoplasia can worsen your risk for tooth decay.

Your dentist will treat you with enamel remineralisation or veneers.
