No, not yet, it's early days. Give it another few weeks.
Is it bleeding on brushing or flossing?
Yes, when flossing just a little on one side. You can see from the picture the area where it bled after flossing. It was just a tiny amount. No bleeding when brushing. At least not that I notice. I can pay attention to it tonight.

It pretty much is the same level of inflammation and place where it was bleeding before with the temporary.

It could be something simple like a little bit of cement left under the gum there. I'd get another dentist to have a look (if I remember right, the one who made the crown is retired now?)
