Default Teeth issue

Mia's teeth have always been a bit suspect. She's missing one, one grew in sideways, etc. They're TINY little teeth even compared to Summer. This last year or so I've noticed the last 1/3rd or so of her canines are getting see-through? Anyone have any ideas about that? Calcium issue? Chewing on tennis balls too much?

You can kind of see it here (looks like staining but it's not).

I've seen dogs with teeth worn way down from tennis balls but not this.

Both fine as far as I know. And Mia's teeth are WHITE still, which for a papillon is pretty good. She doesn't get tartar at all. Weird.

Tennis balls tend to wear them down, not make them clear... Hmmm...

Well in humans teeth becoming more transparent is enamel wearing off. But in humans usually it's coffee, tea, pop, etc. I'm not sure what dog related things are causing the same... but if you can partially see through them I'd say that is your main issue.

One thing I had thought of was that I grin my teeth in my sleep and it had made the ends of my teeth thinner. That's why I wasn't sure if the tennis ball could wear dog teeth like that or not.
