Existing Partial and New Crown
One of the more challenging procedures we do as dentists is to make a new crown and fit it under an existing partial denture. Having said that, I'm sure your dentist can adjust the clasp holding the partial in, as well as adjust the underside of the partial so it doesn't rub too hard on your gum in that area. You should not need to remake the crown. This is a very typical situation.
Pictures would be great, but ... #DrSarahThompson #STL
If the crown is tilted, and you're not happy, I would make sure that I bring that to the dentist's attention. She will likely redo that crown at no additional cost. If there is metal that is digging into your gums, bring this to the attention of the dentist, I hope this helps.
