Hello,

I have viewed the new images. Yes, it definitely looks faded in these images. I think the oral mucosa looks pretty much normal here.

I had an appointment with the Dentist. As per dentist there is no issues and the white line on the cheeks are cheek bites and also the tongue could be a bite and she took pictures and validated. Thanks for your confirmation.
