Hi, these might be chalky white lesions, these are the earliest sign of demineralization. Simple cleaning and maintaining oral hygiene is enough. If lesion is deep and wide spread then intervention in needed.

That is called tartar or calculus. Will vanish once u get ur teeth cleaned. Ur gum recession is due to the same reason. Get ur teeth cleaned to avoid further gum recession
