  • Most people have enamel fractures. They happen from grinding, eating very hard foods, (such as corn nuts, chewing ice), trauma, and quick temperature extremes,(eating very hot followed by immediate cold or vice versa, extreme outdoor temperatures). Generally, the small fractures do not spread or cause issues, but sometimes they do deepen and cause problems. The best thing for you to do is point these areas out to your dentist at your next appointment so that they may be assessed and monitored. Sometimes photos are taken, a bright light can be used to check the depth, or the dentist may just visually measure and monitor the area.For more info,visit the link http://www.identalhub.com/article_understanding-cracked-tooth-205.aspx
