In brief: Yes

Craze lines do appear on teeth normally just from normal use n time.
Short of doing any treatment, brush with fluoridated tooth paste, floss regularly and rinse with fluoridated mouth wash.

In brief: Pain in jaw

You may be clenching or grinding your teeth.
A professional hard night guard made by your dentist is the best thing for clenching at night. It should protect your teeth and tmj. Trauma can cause this. Extremly hot or cold drinks, ie; hot tea can cause craze lines (expand & contract teeth) have your dentist do an evaluation and see if bonding is appropriate. Some fractures require crowns.

In brief: Normal

Thin enamel will allow the underlying tooth color to show through more.
Craze lines are from age and stresses over time -- perfectly normal and not specifically related to thin enamel. Use a fluoride toothpaste. Some like Pronamel which is touted to remineralize tooth surface, though I have not read any literature supporting this. You may certainly research this for confirmation. Good Luck.

In brief: Get Regular Check-up

Some wear and tear of tooth enamel is inevitable.

Calcium is also an essential mineral needed to keep bones strong. Milk, cheese, and other dairy products all help protect and strengthen enamel.Brushing too vigorously can wear down enamel. Get regular check-ups.
