Adjusting crown after implant?

Adjusting crown - Bite adjustment
What you experienced was something called Bite Adjustment. This should be done always a crown is placed as the dental lab can make a replica with the molds of the patient teeth to manufacture the crowns but they cant reproduce in a model the movements of the patients mouth, so any prosthetics that comes from a dental lab always needs adjustments. thats why your dentist always ask you to bite a little piece of blue paper, to know if the bite is correct.
It is completely normal for that adjusting. It is sometimes a little more tedious to adjust a crown over an implant to get it just right but once it's adjusted, a little polishing of the porcelain and it's no problem!
Adjusting a crown minimally to get a perfect fit is not uncommon. The more adjustment necessary for the crown to fit , the less perfect the final product. Without a picture or an xray it's difficult to answer your question specifically.
