Are weak teeth genetic?

In brief: Sometimes

There are specific, very uncommon genetic conditions that cause weak teeth.
More commonly, teeth have different levels of resistance to disease that may be genetic. If someone in your family has lots of tooth problems, others should be sure to maximize their preventive efforts.

In brief: Rarely.

Most of the time it has more to do with the nutrition and Fluoride supplementation at the time of tooth development.

Most time the problem is poor hygiene.
Not brushing and flossing and seeing your dentist regularly. Amazingly how people don't have cavities till they see their dentist. Truth is, they don't know they have them till an expert can diagnose them. Weak teeth is usually an excuse for not taking proper care.
