How to treat the gum that is poking out between the teeth?

My daughter's silver cap fell off during swim practice and it bleed for awhile. Once the bleeding stopped we noticed that her tooth didn't fall with the cap and now her gum is poking out in between left over tooth. Her gum is red with white spots on it. Is this normal?

Hello, thank you for consulting with healthcaremagic.
No it is not normal , actually the swelling of gums indicate that there is infection of gums and may be infection of tooth also.
You should visit your dentist again and get the infection removed and cap replaced.
Hope it will help you.
