What Is the Darkness Around My Crown

First of all, it appears you have a veneer on your upper right central incisor, not a crown.  Second, your gums are extremely inflamed, have much tartar (calculus) around them....you have a considerable gum infection around the veneer.  Do you notice how puffy they are?  Aren't they tender to touch or floss?  I'll bet that they bleed easily when you do brush them?

Before you consider replacing the veneer, either with a new veneer or porcelain crown, you should get your gum infection resolved.  Go to your dentist, have your teeth cleaned and the dental hygienist will help you learn how to better take care of your gums so that the gum infection will resolve and your won't have to have the same thing happen with a new dental restoration (porcelain veneer or crown).

Pain Under Crown that Looks Different from Other Teeth

From your photos, it appears to be an infection on the gum tissue above the crown. See a dentist ASAP to diagnose and treat.
