In most cases, craze lines, which are also called cracks or fissures, are not a cause for concern. They are very small and usually do not cause any pain or discomfort. They are also not visible to the naked eye, so you may not even be aware that you have them. However, if you notice any changes in your teeth, such as sensitivity or discomfort, it’s always a good idea to see a dentist to make sure that there is no underlying problem that needs to be addressed. The dentist will be able to assess the situation and recommend the best course of treatment, if necessary.
