Linea alba is not a problem. It is just a mark on cheek at the level of teeth/occlusion.

The only thing you can do about it is not to worry.

Linea alba is also due to grinding of the teeth in the night or sometimes during the day. Kindly observe and see if this is happening. If yes try using a Night Guard. Linea alba is also a normal Variant present in many individuals so you need not to worry about it.
