Why are my teeth transparent?

Here is why you have transparent teeth and how you can fix them

Transparent teeth, also known as, translucent teeth, see-through teeth or thinning teeth, Is a common occurrence in peoples teeth at any age. It's mostly noticed on the front teeth, as these are commonly seen while smiling and talking.
