there may be high chances it could just be a normal feature as you have already visited a may be due to improper cleaning of oral parts like tongue etc.brushing does not reach the back parts of mouth so better use a mouthwash like hexidiene,orahexplus,thermokind etc.White lesions may also be precancerous especially if you have some habits related to tobacco,alcohol , if you want to clear your doubts completely you can visit another dentist.
