You have to recall if you had any trauma in the past in these teeth. If trauma then it might have got fractured and the teeth would be mobile and painful. But if no mobility and no trauma then in that case its enamel crack and unless it becomes sensitive its better to leave alone, but if it bothers you then you can get it laminated or veneered.

Definitely cracked teeth can be fixed by various options like bonding, veneers, lumineers .But we need to evaluate the status of the tooth pulp prior to any procedures. In case of any pulp damage , root canal treatment with respect to that tooth may also be required. (History of trauma)
