RED AND WHITE LESIONS OF THE ORAL CAVITY
Any condition that increases the thickness of the epithelium causes it to appear white by increasing the distance to the vascular bed. Lesions most often appear white because of a thickening of the keratin layer, or hyperkeratosis. Other common causes of a white appearance include acanthosis (a thickening of the spinous cell layer), an increase in the amount of edema fluid in the epithelium (leukoedema), and reduced vascularity in the underlying lamina propria. Surface ulcerations covered by a fibrin cap can also appear white, as would collapsed bullae. Like :

Leukoedema
White Sponge Nevus
Frictional (Traumatic) Keratosis
Cheek Chewing
Chemical Injuries of the Oral Mucosa like burns
Smokeless Tobacco–Induced Keratosis
Nicotine Stomatitis
Leukoplakia
Candidiasis
Oral lichen planus
Geographic Tongue
