Crown odor

I have a crown in my front teeth. Recently I noticed bad breath. After a while I figured out that the source of the abad breath was the gum area right above the crown. If I rub my finger in the gum area just above the crown, it smells really bad. I can even smell it in the floss after I have flossed the crown tooth. And the upper part of my front teeth is hurting sometimes (i meant the gum) and my front teeth bleeds easily. Pls help me about this.

You need to get in to see your dentist. It sounds like you may have decay under the crown, and possibly an infection.
