      Default dareker red line around gum of crown??

      Hi,

      Can anyone help me with this. Ever since my permanent crown was put on four weeks ago I have a dark red line on the gum around the crown. I am getting very nervous that this is the start of an infection or an ill-fitting crown? How do I figure this out? Is this normal? None of the rest of my gums are red just where I have my one and only crown. Thanks so much

      Go back to your dentist and ask them to check, it's impossible to say from here without seeing it.

      Yes, I have heard of it, (sorry, I should've expanded a bit on the answer) there could be a host of different things causing it, from simple stuff like a bit of extra cement being left in place, to complicated stuff like you having an allergy to one of the metallic components of the crown (if it's not all porcelain) so it's really hard to diagnose over the internet

      just thought i would let you know i went to my dentist and he said there was a big piece of cement left on my tooth(not sure why), he took it off. so i guess that is what was irritating my gum. once again i freaked out over a very simple dental thing. maybe one of these days i will learn
