Many times when crowns are prepared ,some of the gum tissue is removed in the process to establish a finish line below the gumline. This is a common practice and will assure a good finish line on the permanent crown that will be hidden beneath the gumline. It is really nothing to worry about.It could be that the temporary was not trimmed adequately or that there may be some cement under the gumline. How long ago was the temporary crown placed? Did the tooth have a large filling in it prior to being prepared to be crowned?

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
