I have like a small tiny dot on my Gums under a tooth and on

Customer Question

I have like a small white tiny dot on my Gums under a tooth and on the right of it I have a round circle that is white...about a year ago I went in and they said it was caused by me eating to much acidic foods and drinks...so when the circle healed it look like a white round circle...could this be something else?
JA: Are you experiencing any swelling? Do your gums bleed when you brush or floss?
Customer: Yes a little bleeding not very much swelling
JA: Please give me a bit more information, so the dentist can help you best.

The best way to give you a better analysis would be if you could submit a picture of this white lesion.
