Cracks in teeth typically start in the outer layer of the tooth. Cracks can occur from factors that weaken teeth such as cavities and existing large fillings. Even biting on hard foods and objects can crack teeth.
Preventing Cracked Teeth
To prevent cracks, we recommend regular brushing to prevent the build-up bacteria which cause cavities, and not chewing hard objects such as ice and popcorn kernels.
