What to do if as a kid, i used to get teased for having "vampire teeth" because my canines are very pointy. Are they suppose to be pointy?

Yes: Canines are supposed to be pointy. The problem you encountered may not be because of the shape of these teeth, but rather because of their position.

I am 16 years old. I don't smoke, chew or drink. I have alump near my upper molars and my vampire teeth. Its on my upper cheek for four days. I hope its not cancer.

How do teeth harden?

How do teeth harden?

Tooth calcification: If you mean how teeth harden as a they develop inside of the jaw the answer is calcification of the tooth bud. This is a one time & permanent process.
