How can you tell how strong your enamel is?
if your teeth are yellow or stained does that mean your enamel has fully worn off?

Enamel is translucent, whereas dentine underneath the enamel is yellow. If your teeth appear too yellow this can mean you have worn down your enamel by brushing your teeth too hard, for too long or with hard bristled tooth brushes.
However whatever enamel is left can be made more strong & resistant to caries, by:
1) using a soft bristle tooth brush
2) high fluoride toothpaste 1450ppm (colgate total recommended)
3) pea sized amount of toothpaste
4) make light vibrational movements/ NOT saw-like movements
5) do this for 2 minutes (30 seconds each quarter of your mouth)

Also try to reduce the amount of sugar in your diet & the frequency of your meals- allowing your teeth to repair themselves (remineralise)

Nothing beats going to your local dentist & asking them for advice as i cannot see your teeth.

Your teeth can become stained even if they are perfectly healthy.
