Q.

White lines where gum and tooth meet

I have just been to a Dentist for this problem. She told me that it is becoz of fizzy drinks, I drink water and juice I even told her but she could not help me. All my teeth have these white marks right round where the gum and tooth meet. I have to put my hand when laughing now. I brush 2 times a day. Please help me, what can be the cause of this Doctor?
Thanking you.

it could be the acid from the juice or it could be decalcification. your dentist can repair it with a white filling to blend in with the rest of the tooth colour
