Gum recession behind crown tooth, possible root exposure, monitor?

Crowns and Receding Gums
Gum recession and exposure of the margins (where the crown meets the tooth) does nor require replacement of the crown unless the margins are open (gap between the corn and tooth). Your dentist can best evaluate this. If the margin is aesthetically unpleasing, then the crown can be replaced, but this is not pathology and can be done at your leisure. So just monitor it and keep on brushing and flossing religiously, good for you!
