Slight Receding Gums and Tingling Sensations

I will be frank. I have been smoking 2-5 cigarettes a day for 3 months now. I am 17 and my two bottom front teeth started to tingle, like a slight irritation between the teeth. I assumed something was stuck between them so I ignored it. The next day it was still there and I look at my gums and under my two bottom front teeth was a tad bit of tooth exposure. I don't remember the last time I thoroughly examined my gums, so I'm not sure if this is bad. My father has been smoking for 30 years and his gums are fine and we both take care of our teeth equally. What is this?

Also, I consume a lot of Taco Bell which I drown in their hottest sauce. I drink Lipton PureLeaf Unsweetened Ice Tea, and I drink a low amount of soda. The Dentist I saw yesterday said it wasn't that uncommon or bad and that it's from acids, but I'm wondering about smoking and such. Please fill me in.
