Starter Problems

Hey guys, I need some advice on assesing a problem with my starter on my BBC motor. For some time now when starting my motor, my hitachi starter makes screeching sounds, then it would make popping sounds with smoke coming from the starter, not sure where. The car starts but this noise is annoying. I jacked up the car to view the starter and it looks secured but when I checked the flywheel the teeth is worn on the half way mark. And one tooth is completely chipped off. I took some pics and I hope its clear to diagnose what can cause this or is this normal.
