Dental professionals, "transparent teeth"?

Dr. Leonard Pizzolatto

Enamel: If you are referring to the edges of the front teeth being transparent, this is usually due to the natural transparency of enamel. Also, severely worn teeth can look transparent.

Enamel varies from patient to patient depending on degree of mineralization.It is normal for many people to have a high degree of transparency.
