Will my skin reattach and form a longer naibed?

I used to bite my nails when I was a kid,and stopped aroun 5-7.
But,my nailbed never recovered,and since Im a guy,I guess cutting it short never helped either.
The thing is,I noticed that the skin that gets under my nails when they are big looks diferent than the rest of my finger skin,specially right after cutting it.And as I let the nail grow,it looks like the white part get slowly "transparent",but since it also acumulates dirt,I scrapp the dirt with another finger nail,and it would be clearer.
I did a little research,and some places say that the skin will eventually reattach as the nail grow.I tried,and for the moment,I only noticed a small change on my right thumb,but the rest is pretty much the same.I stopped scrapping under my nails as suggested,but Im having some hard time keeping them clean.

How can I clean it?Will the skin really reattach to the nail,and make the nail bed longer?
