Dear JACUSTOMER-sk28c7r,

Would you be able to provide a photograph of this gray line? You can upload a picture by using the "tree" icon on the tool bar at the top of the text entry form.

This will allow me to provide a more accurate and relevant response...

graphic The area on the other side of this eye tooth bled when I brushed Friday, but hasn't since. Also, the first molar has a small amalgam filling. Thanks!

Dear JACUSTOMER-sk28c7r,

The photo was not received. Could you try again? Alternately, could you use one of the free online photo hosting services, such as photobucket, flickr, or tinypic.

Thank you!
