Hi everyone. I've recently had a crown and post fitted to replace an old crown. As you can see from the picture, the crown looks crooked and is longer than the other front tooth.

There is also a large gap between the top of the crown and the gumline. Aside from looking awful, I'm concerned it could cause problems for the gum

My question is does this pose a risk to the gum, and it is even possible for a crown and post to be adjusted or replaced without damage to the original tooth structure?

Good day

I would go back to the dentist. This is not an acceptable result. I would suggest having at the very least a new crown made, if the post and core can be kept intact, keeping in mind that the post was also acceptable. I would need an x-ray to confirm this.
