In brief: Probably not

Most likely it is just a benign "white spot.
" however, without seeing it, it is impossible to say for sure. Best to have your dentist or doctor take a look at it.

In brief: Probably not

Probably not, but if you are a smoker, smokeless tobacco user, you should have it checked out.
