Recent Crown Fitted

Mar 13, 2014

I have recently had a crown fitted on one of my front upper teeth. However, it seems that near the front gum line, the original tooth can be still be seen - the crown doesn't cover this part and starts a little lower down. The view from behind the tooth seems to show that the crown completely covers the tooth and meets that gum line at the back. Is this something I should worry about? Or should I just leave it?

It feels a bit funny when I brush my front upper teeth (seems like they're vibrating)..

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Ideally the crown should extend to the gum line. It should cover the entire visible surface of the tooth. There shouldn't be a space. Any area that is not covered if not cared for properly can decay.
