Do teeth really do a "popcorn thing" if they get too hot?

Asked by buckyboy28 (4938 points ) July 16th, 2012

In “Breaking Bad” last night, they mentioned that they could not match teeth found in a building that was burned down because when teeth get too hot, they pop like popcorn. Is this a real thing?

Yes, this is true, the crowns explode when heated much like popcorn will

I guess they do- in my experience, we never heated anything to that extent.
