Vertical line on top two incisors

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: JohnMallis  (8 years ago)
When I look at my teeth standing straight in front of the mirror the lines are not there. They only become visible if I turn my head to a certain angle while staring at the mirror. Then I can see a vertical white line running through the center of each of my top two incisors, covering about 2/3 of the tooth and going up the gum line. The more I turn my head and light shines on my teeth from a wider angle the more the lines look like cracks.

They do not hurt, but I'm worried. What could it be?

its more or less sounding like craze lines which is hair line crack in enamel. unpleasant in esthetic but not dangerous. it can occur because of unwise attempt to use teeth like opening bottle or any other thing. consult to ur dentist and go for sensitivity test and x-rays to diagnose the actual problem....
