Hi, last night I was eating dinner, felt there was something stuck on the gum above my teeth, looked in mirror and noticed a white bump, feels hard and not painful. The canine tooth below is fine, no pain and not loose etc. haven’t had any dental procedures done recently. Yesterday morning I had a McMuffin and the muffin was rock hard, not sure if I accidentally hurt the gum causing a bump, or it had been there all along and I just haven’t noticed it. Anyone have any idea what this could possibly be?

Good day

This could be part of your canine prominence or just a bony exotosis or outgrowth. Nothing to worry about.
