If you look at my teeth the bottoms of them are kind of clear.

I had braces for five years. I got them off 4 years ago in November. They were like that once the braces came off, I think you can still see some glue residue but who knows.

My teeth also aren't white, they are kind of yellow but not dirty yellow. They almost remind me of smokers yellow, except I don't smoke.

Oh, and my braces did no good. I have seriously spaced teeth. I had a frenectomy and some jaw scraping to try and get my bone to fuse, it isn't together at my middle teeth. There is a gap in the bone.

Any ideas??

I don't know. I noticed not too long ago that my teeth are becoming clearish. I wonder if they're getting thin? It kinda makes me nervous - I should go see a dentist, but I haven't seen a dentist since my orthodontist took my braces off 10 years ago.:

I think I read on one of these threads that when they start looking clear, the enamel is getting thin.

My teeth are clear on the edges, and yes, it is from the enamel getting thin. In my case it is because I have severe GERD and gastroparesis and the constant stomach acid and vomiting have wrecked my teeth. I would go to a dentist and get it looked at.
