Crown on mini dental implants is moving

Crown on mini dental implants is moving:
My wife had 2 mini dental implants placed in the positions of her 2 upper canines. This was only the dentists second experience placing the mini implants.
I observed the procedure and the dentist had problems with the right side. She placed the stent and drilled the pilot hole and was required to remove the implant and redirect it 3 times before she was satisfied with the placement. At one point the implant exited the bone thru the gum on the anterior side. The left side implant seemed to align properly with the stent and only required one attempt to place. The dentist then used cement to attach the crowns.
My question is : both crowns feel slightly loose. I am wondering if they will tighten as the bone heals around the mini implants? It is also a little odd that the crown on the left that the dentist had no problems with is looser than on the right with required 3 redirects into the bone. Thank You!
