you probably need to adjust your deraileur. I'm sure the cassette is fine. The teeth are steel, I don't know how you could brake them unless you're 500 lbs of muscle.

A lot of people would prefer 12-28 cassette for closer spacing. Myself included and don't know why Shimano stopped making them for 11 speed. 5700 105 had a 12-28 option
