Not Getting Used to Dental Crown

Hi, ever since I've broken my incisor to the right of my front incisor along the upper row of teeth, I have had a porcelain crown to restore the broken tooth.
However, the crown bonded to the tooth is not constructed as precisely as the lateral tooth on my left, thus I can feel the symmetrical difference in my mouth.  It isn't really comfortable as it feels like theres a bulge of extra porcelain material as compared to my tooth on the left.  

My question is, should I be getting used to the crown or should a crown be made as precise as the original tooth before it was broken?

Dear Joe,

Normally after 6 to 8 weeks the crown should feel normal.  If it has been more than this period of time I would recommend changing the crown to duplicate the natural tooth.  This often is not a easy process and should be done by an expert cosmetic dentist that will take the appropriate amount of time to restore the tooth and make sure you feel comfortable.
