    One more question for the knowledgeable people at smd:
    my wife's maxillary incisors each have 4 or 5 lines running vertically
    on the labial side. Her dentist only recently noticed this (there
    should be an age limit associated with performing dentistry..but I
    digress) and asked whether she tends to suck on lemons, which is not
    the case. Any other ideas what these lines or ridges might be ?

    Lemons and limes cause horizontal troughs in anterior teeth.

    Vertical 'craze' lines are usually from parafunction.
