Bad crown by my dentist

Options
Hi, sorry if I shouldn't post this here.

I had a crown put in my mouth 3 years ago in a different country and couple month's ago my crown fell out and I went to an UK dentist to put it back. But when he did that he put it wrong, cause doesn't feel right in my mouth and he polized more of the crown till the metal plate and now I have a big black dot on my crown that I can see the metal of the crown. He did not replace it with a new one, he leaves it like that. What can I do?

    How long was the crown out of your mouth before it got put back in?
    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    I'm very much hoping you've not understood my question there! 

    I was asking how long the crown had been out of your mouth before it was put back in by the UK dentist?

    The teeth around the lost crown can move into the space of the lost crown over time, meaning that the crown does need a bit of adjustment to make it fit again. 

    Usually if a crown has been out for more than a couple of weeks, then refitting it will require a bit of adjustment, and although it may still be perfectly good as a crown, it wouldn't feel quite the same as it did before. 

    If the crown really had been out for 3 years, then I doubt it would have fitted back on at all.

    I suspected from your first post that English might not have been your first language. If you have trouble understanding my replies, then ask someone just to read it for you and translate. :)
