Opaque Teeth - Dentist has evaluated...

I have had Ulcerative Colitis for approximately 8 years and have been on a bunch of different medication over that time. I have noticed over the last year that the top, front four teeth in my mouth are becoming see through. I went to my dentist today and after x-rays and after an extensive exam he said he has never seen this. The enamal on my teeth is completely intact but it is the inner "matter" that is the problem. He is not sure what the problem is and suggested a CBC to help determine the cause. I mentioned that as a result of my UC I have labs done on a regular basis. I told him that I was told that my Vitamin D levels were a bit low.

- Would the low Vitamin D cause this?
- If Vitamin D is added back into my system would the teeth return to white?

Thanks!
