Dental #crown and bleeding gums #DrSoftTouch
Bleeding around your crown does not necessarily indicate that your tooth is decaying. There are many reasons for bleeding gums such as improper oral hygiene or an ill fitting crown. I would recommend returning to your dentist to have your tooth and gums evaluated. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.

Could be perio
You should make sure that you don't have periodontal disease. Your bleeding is due to inflammation. This could be due to tarter. You did not mention if you were symptomatic to hot or cold. Assuming you dont have sensitivity, have the doctor check for perio issues.
