Hi..No need to worry because it's not cancer. It's a keratotic area which appears white because of friction. It's also called as frictional keratosis. It may a lichen planus lesion also. But no need worry in either of these cases as these are just normal variations. Please visit a nearby dentist to get smoothening or polishing of the irritating crown. And application of the gel if needed.
I understand your feeling.
Well we thank you for giving a proper history.
Since you have dental crown sometimes that may irritate your tongue mucosa and it may form in to ulcer and present as a white patch. Cancers does not occur without any prior cause. So you don't need to worry. An ulcer takes 7-10 days to heal. Just keep taking b complex tabs for 3 more days and stop after that.
