Why do teeth get cracks?

Cracks can be caused by decay, grinding at night, trauma or having a large filling which weakens the tooth.
The symptoms include sharp pain on biting and cold sensitivity. It may be difficult for the patient to pinpoint the tooth, but the dentist can often find the offender.
The problem can be fixed with either a filling or crown to prevent the crack opening on biting.
