Brief Answer:
Please provide more details.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Visible roots is due to gum recession. However, as you said that the roots are visible from behind the gums so can you please tell that are the gums receded or not?

Also for a clarification please click a picture of your gums and teeth and upload it here from your dashboard.

I would advise you precisely with these details.

Brief Answer:
Thin gums.

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

I have viewed the images and it is due to thin gums. Nothing is needed to be done.
Just massage the gums gently with finger tips as it will help in improving blood flow and improve your gums. Also, chew a vitamin C pellet daily. You should get your teeth cleaned by a Dentist and also consult an Orthodontist and get braces done to align the teeth.

But do not delay further. You can take Limcee for Vitamin C.
