Grey crown over implant #DrSoftTouch
Yes, you tooth does appear grey. This is probably due to the abutment showing through the crown. I would recommend a zirconia abutment rather than titanium. The cost of replacing the abutment and crown varies. I would recommend returning to your dentist to discuss your concerns. I hope this helps!

Gray crown over implant
The main possible reason for the grayish color could be the titanium abutment under the crown. In order to avoid the gray to show through, you have to get a zirconium abutment that is white in color. Cost varies depending on the implant, crown and abutment.
