Your best bet is to see your dentist as soon as possible to determine the cause of the inflammation. Swollen gums can be due to an ill fitting crown, a lack of proper oral hygiene or many other factors. After determining a cause, your dentist will inform you if crown replacement is necessary.  I hope this helps. Follow me on RealSelf for more answers.
