Linea alba buccalis is a horizontal white ridge seen on the buccal mucosa at the level of the occlusal plane of the teeth. This is a hyperkeratotic lesion caused by friction from the teeth. This is found in almost every individual at varying degrees and may be mistaken for leukoplakia. You should visit a dentist so that it can be examined so that the findings can be confirmed and treated accordingly.
