black line next to implants

I have two teeth which was permanently planted about 4 years ago.is this what you call implants?i now notice that there is a darkish /black line on next to it on the inside line. i do floss.it is not sore nor bleeding.I like them.i am a bit worried though that there might give me problems later on like pains,bleeding etc,i am not sure whether the nerve was removed or not.
should i have it checked out or is it not so serious.?

it is best to have it checked out. it is difficult to say what this is without having a look at it

Hi there

Kindly assist. I have replaced crown due to my gums receding, but it does not seem to help as it is still receding &  getting black around the cowns. What seems to be the problem. Please advise.
