    My smile has never been completely perfect, a few small gaps but nothing major, my teeth are pretty straight. Braces were never ever mentioned to me as a child / teenager.

    I felt a hard lump in my gum today as i was applying bonjella to a small ulcer in my mouth.
    I looked in the mirror and realised the hard lump on my gum was actually my tooth, my upper canine looks like it is literally about to come straight through my gum!
    I am really worried that the tooth might oush the whole way through the gum (it is on the verge of doing so).

    Why has this happened? And what can be done about it? :eek:

    Can you post a picture? It goes without saying that you should see a dentist ASAP
