If the white line is asymptomatic, bilateral, and along the occlusal plane, it's probably " linea alba". which is associated with friction of tooth and considered normal variant of anatomy.

ScottMa is pretty much saying that the white lines are a result of you biting the side of your cheeks.

could by leukoplakia, if it stays the same and doesn't cause pain then it's no problem. you have to keep an eye on it tho, much like a mole on your skin which is only ever a problem if it changes or bleeds, leukoplakia is no problem unless it develops a hard/rough texture. if this happens see someone straight away as it can be cancerous. i have the same thing, i got quite a fright when i read that scary word but like most people i have moles too, it's just another thing to keep an eye on
