Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
If your teeth are becoming see through then may you have calcium deficiency in your body which is detrimental for you. You must start taking calcium supplements and consult a dentist for its cure.The gaps can also be corrected.

hello miss,
the chips which fall of from the bottom of your teeth are most probably calculus (deposits around the tooth) which should be properly removed by the dentist through a procedure called scaling. it is very essential to visit a dentist atleast once in 6 months. brush twice daily and can use mouth wash if possible. consult a dentist. take care .
