Full Answer

Cracked mirrors may also be mended by applying super glue to the crack. This technique does not fix the cracked glass, but it does keep the glass intact. Another option is to cover the crack with tiles or a decal as a camouflaging decoration if the cracks are in a convenient spot. In some cases, the damage of the glass may be too severe, in which case the mirror frame may be finished with new glass.
