Did you have a friend or loved one take a very close look at what appears to be a crack in your tooth? Did one of them respond with, “that’s a craze line not a crack” and now you’re not sure how to proceed? The good news is that if this is the type of concern you’re dealing with, it’s not a serious issue, we can address it very easily, and it is not something you need to worry about. However, to ensure you’re getting accurate advice, we have some suggestions for you to follow.
Compare Types Of Tooth Cracks
Take a look at your tooth in the mirror. Do you see that the crack has affected the majority of your tooth tissue? Or, does it look like there’s an extremely fine crack in the outer surface of your tooth? If it’s the second one, then this is probably a craze line.
Understand The Difference
An actual crack in your tooth is one that affects multiple layers. It will leave your tooth “open” as the internal tissues become available to bacteria that work their way inside. As you know, this is dangerous for your oral health and must be treated with restorative dentistry. However, a craze line is just a cosmetic concern. Yes, it is a crack in your enamel but your tooth is still nice and safe. You don’t need to do a thing to it (but if you can’t stand the way it looks, you have options).
