How long do gums take to heal after a crown?

I am a 37 year old male. I want to know how long do gums take to heal after a crown?

Usually a crown placement is adjacent to the gum tissue so there is no need for healing to take place. I don't know what is going on but if you have an issue with the gum tissue, go back to your dentist and have it checked out.
Depending on the procedure completed, usually soreness resolves within 72 hours. Complete healing may take up to 6 to 8 weeks. Check with your dentist if you think something is wrong with your gums.Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy smartphone
Normally the slight irritation of the gums around a newly placed crown should get better in 24-48 hrs. Rinsing with warm salt water is often helpful.
Generally if the permanent crown is seating properly the gums should heal after several days. Try rinsing with warm salt water. If inflammation is persistent there may be other problems such as cement that needs to be cleaned off.
Minor inflammation of the gum tissue after a crown prep will go away after 24 hours.
