Dr. James E. White answered:

Why would the veins under my tongue be dark in colour?

Common

Open-uri20121105-25182-jc25n1
This is common and most likely normal. There is a large number of superficial veins just below the under surface of the tongue. This is the reason that medications can be absorbed into the blood stream by placement medications "under the tongue". The overlying skin of the base of the tongue is very thin. Thus, veins may look prominent and dark in color.

I got a tooth (19) extracted Wednesday, today Thursday 1 day since. I noticed some blown veins under my tongue, and some swelling. Anything to worry?

Probably not

Veins
Look at both sides under your tongue, if it looks the same then most likely your natural anatomy. If one side is reder, it is possible that the suction got on the tissue and just caused a little localized bleeding. check with your dentist at the post op visit

tongue swollen veins engorged underneath ?

Normal

Open-uri20121204-24555-1jbofe0
the under side of the tongue normally has bulging veins. If you never looked at it closely it may look abnormal. See your dentist or an ENT to make sure it is not out of the ordinary.

Popped vein in tongue will heal? how long will it take?

Emergency!

Veins
See a Dentist, an Oral Surgeon, or go to the emergency room immediately. The blood vessels, arteries and veins, in the tongue when perforated or rupture cause a hemorrhage where you can loose a lot of blood in a very short time - this can threaten your life! Seek help immediately!

I have a blister under my tongue it fills with fluid then bursts,is it a gland ,.it is like a vein

Mucocele

Blistering
Small mucous glands in this area can become clogged and the mucous builds up causing the swelling. It is only a problem when it can't drain. If it persists, see an oral surgeon.
