Cracked Marble Floor Tiles

My bathroom floor is marble and has several tiles that are badly cracked. I do not want to replace the tiles ( I'm not sure if an uneven sub-floor is causing the problem or something else). Any way to seal the cracks with a permanent substance - I use a marble sealer now and it works okay but does not correct the problem for long. Thanks.

Repair of cracked marble tiles

Cracked tiles are usually a result of movement in subfloor and failure to use proper substrate material. Any attempts to repair broken tiles would require removal of the tiles. It is doubtful you could remove them without doing further damage. It would futile to do so anyway and return them to the faulty subfloor because the integrity of the tile has already been compromised. The tiles would most likely crack again in the same place.
