Craze Lines Treatment – What are your options?

Ever noticed some fine crack lines on the edges of your teeth? These are fine cracks that tend to get discolored and become noticeable. These crack lines are called craze lines. Although craze lines are not a big issue and are only cosmetic in nature, there are multiple ways by which we can treat them. In the information provided below, we will briefly discuss the treatment options available at Oris Smiles Dental Clinic Ahmedabad

What are Craze Lines? – Craze Lines Treatment

Our teeth are under a lot of pressure while eating and chewing. Craze lines are a result of the natural aging process. The change in temperature of food and the varied consistency of food items tend to put strain on the teeth. Due to this stress, the edges of the teeth develop minor cracks with time. 

Even by using your teeth as tools or bottle openers—which is absolutely not advised. They will eventually physically start to break under the strain. They may appear due to poor dental health, a lifetime of chewing on hard, crunchy meals, and consuming hot and cold beverages.  

How to prevent them – Craze Lines Treatment

Maintain Good Oral Hygiene

Brushing and flossing twice daily can help minimize tooth stains by keeping teeth clean and healthy. Don’t be aggressive with your brushing and learn the correct brushing technique.

Limit Acidic Foods and Drink

Over time, acidic foods and drinks erode tooth enamel, making craze lines more noticeable. Limiting these food items can prevent further damage. 

Use a night guard

Bruxism or teeth grinding increases the strain on your enamel, leading to craze lines and damage to your TMJ. Nightguard is an effective option for this, suggested by our experts at Oris Smiles Dental Clinic Ahmedabad

Use a Soft-Bristled Toothbrush

Using a hard brush can damage the enamel and can lead to the development of craze lines.


Refrain from chewing ice and hard food items that can put undue stress on your teeth

Regular checkups

If you don’t routinely check your teeth, pre-existing craze line issues could worsen and require medical attention.

Treatment options – Craze Lines Treatment

Dental bonding

A dental resin that matches the teeth’ color hides the lines. Composite resin is used to naturally mimic the tooth color, shape, and form of your teeth.

Porcelain Veneers

This treatment can conceal craze lines because a thin layer of porcelain is bonded to the front surface of the teeth. It is the most durable and efficient way of enhancing your smile and managing craze lines

Do they harm your teeth?

Not always. The majority of the time, routine dental use results in craze lines. They can occasionally be brought on by dental trauma or using your teeth improperly, including when opening bottles or pulling tags off garments.  

Do your teeth have craze lines?

If you run your tongue over the surface of your teeth, you won’t be able to feel craze lines; however, you will be able to see them when you smile in front of the mirror. Depending on their discoloration, you may be the only one who notices them more than others.
