I had a crown put in, was quite uncomfortable, so after seven month of working on it by filing it down, then filing down the teeth under the crown, the dentist replaced it (at his expense). New crown is more comfortable, but I still feel it and should not. The gum on top of crown is quite tender and my gums around the crown are now bleeding. I have several crowns, never had this experience. Any advice? Thanks.
Spontaneous gingival bleeding or after brushing is generally associated with imflammation. The common source of gingival inflammation after crown placement is generally associated with overcontoured margin.Redo crown is probably the way to solve the problem.
