In the wintertime, bedrooms are filled with super dry air.  Overnight many people suffer from extreme dry mouth.  Dried oral tissue show up whiter than usual.  Try sipping water to rehydrate.  If this doesn't help, you have an urgent need to have all white lesions diagnosed/biopsied  by a dentist/oral surgeon.
