Or ........ Your teeth are fine but the gums have to go ....... I bet
the dude has bad perio disease ... just a hunch here.........

"fine looking tooth ......."

Oh. Sorry. Maybe a premature contact with the occlusion coupled with a
grinding or clenching habit. Ignore the periodontal disease part ... I
