Crown Too Low


I have a question. I had a brand new crown crown put on only to have the tooth start to ache and inflame. I went to a random dentist for a second opinion and they spent about an hour grinding down the crown that was already not hurting because of the bite but rather the inflamation from within. Anyway, went to my Endo and had the root canal done. I can feel that the crown is now too low and my Endo agreed that it is 1mm away from touching the above tooth and that it should be fixed. I am so upset that I may now have to get a new crown just because a dentist ground it down too much. I have a couple questions. First, will changing out the crown cause any possible failure for the root canal underneith such as from bacteria entering from the sides/top while the crown is being fabricated and prepared. Also, is there a big risk to leaving a first molar out of occlusion like mine is. I am anxious about all of this because my one prior root canal, in the second molar right behind, failed and I ended up with an implant. I don't want this new root canal to fail and I con't want the implant to recieve too much stress and have problems. I am still in pain from the root canal around my whole jaw and ear and really don't want to endure anymore dental work.
