Save yourself a trip to the dentist or the ER. I am a dental hygienist and have seen this numerous times in the dental office over the past 25 years.
There is nothing the dentist can do. The teeth might change color - don't worry about it. Keep an eye on her when she bites into food - you want to look for whether it appears to bother her or not. If she begins to tell you things like there feels like a hert beat inside her tooth bring her to the dentist - this is rare with primary teeth.
Don't worry about her teeth looking crooked. Teeth drift naturally and it will not affect the permanent teeth.
