Recently I visited my Dentist for a cleaning. He told me that I have an internal subsurface stress fracture of my front tooth. It is horizontal across the front of my tooth and is almost invisible without light. The doctor said it was most likely due to an impact trauma which I immediately related it to an accident I had a few years ago.
It is not painful for me, has not broken off and my doctor said that it doesn't affect the strength of my tooth. Every now and then when I bite into something hard, it is in the back of my mind, but I tend not to worry about it. I do not know if this is what is wrong with your teeth, but it does sound familiar. If your doctor examined your teeth and you had x-rays done, I wouldn't worry about it too much. I think your doctor would have said something to you about it if something was wrong or should be repaired.
Good Luck, and in the future it would be wise to wear protective gear. Getting a tooth knocked out is painful and expensive to have it replaced with a fake one. =)
