Gap between crown and gum?

I had a crown made last year. When I went back for my next checkup they said it wasn't seating right with my gum and had a new crown made.

I notice that when brushing on the inside of that crown there is a pain that isn't there during eating or any other time, so I went poking around. I think there is a gap between the tooth and gum that i can fit my fingernail between. Could that cause the pain when brushing? Maybe the gap is only there when the gum is moved, which is why it doesn't happen when eating?

How do they fix this? Is it urgent or should I just bring it up next checkup?
