So in answer to your question, what you're seeing is not "normal" but is a reaction to the treatment you had done to your tooth. You have an ulceration on the gum that will certainly go away but it may not come back to the exact height it was before. This won't be a problem long term. FYI, if you were wondering, the dark band you see at the top of the crown on the inside is a metal collar which is what fits to your tooth. That appearance is completely normal. I hope this helps!
