The gum above the tooth is now a "purplish" color
I recently had a cap installed on one of my two front teeth.
The gum above the tooth is now a "purplish" color, and looks different from all my other gums. Also, right above the tooth there is a small gap before my gum, which is dark in color. Thus, when I smile the area around the top of my tooth looks very dark and is sort of unattractive.
It has only been a week since the actual cap was put on, and 3 weeks after the tooth was shaved down in preparation for the cap.
Will my gum go back to normal, or will I be stuck with the way it looks? Is there anything I can do to make it better? I am on Vitamin C to speed up gum healing, but I am concerned it's already as good as it's going to get.
