We perform visual exams followed up with a Velscope evaluation. A Velscope uses a light which indicates abnormal tissue that can be detected before you see or feel any abnormalities. Make an appointment for an oral cancer screening. 

Most often the reason is a combination of things, whitening toothpaste, acidic foods/drinks, clenching and grinding. We usually recommend that you have your teeth checked to make sure no cavities are present and then taking a look at the products you're using daily.
