Tooth 44 was crowned a month ago. At first it looked quite normal but now it feels strange and I can see yellow around the bottom (photo added). Can anyone tell me what the cause could possibly be?
Thank you.

Any chance of a better photo? My best guess from that is that the gum has shrunk back a bit from the new crown which is showing the margin between the crown and tooth. Unsightly but harmless.
