I noticed my lower teeth (3 away from middle) on each side have asymetric gums. one has a lot more gum tissue than the other and looks normal, but the one on the right has significantly less. The 4 teeth in between have somewhere in the middle. The gums otherwise look ok, no redness or bleeding. No pain. Is this an indicator of a cosmetic problem or a more serious problem. I am 28, and have had no tooth problems besides a few cavities in the back. I brush religiously, floss occasionally (which I will change!) and haven't seen my dentist in a little over a year. I scheduled an appointment, but they can't get me in for 2 months and I am worried. Please help! Thanks.
