How long do teeth take? First one is crooked?

Baby’s first tooth finally cut through! It’s enough to be slightly visible and 100% felt when she BF...but then doesn’t seem to have progressed (it’s been a couple weeks since the fever and first push-through). When should we expect it to be all the way out of her guns and looking like a real tooth instead of a weird white lumpy bit just over the “horizon” of her gums? Also, this first one seems to be erupting through at an angle...should we be concerned? TYIA!

    My daughters bottom 2 teeth came in crooked but straightened out when they were fully in.

    Some teeth can seem like they take foreverrrrr to come through. Our daughter's bottom teeth were like that. Her top teeth took just a few days. I wouldn't stress it as long as they are coming through and nothing looks infected or swollen beyond normal. And they will straighten out on their own once they come in completely.
