Getting a crown :(
« on: December 02, 2013, 03:07:53 PM »
I had a recent root-canal, followed by the dentist reinforcing the tooth.

Now he needs to put a crown on there, and I am worried. What kind of agony am I looking at tonight? He has to grind down the tooth yes? (few things sound more awful).

Has anyone had this done? Will I not be able to eat for weeks on that side? Will I be in huge pain for days?

I have had a few.....they are not bad at all. They will grind it but since you had a root canal you won't feel anything but pressure on your gums if anything.

Ongoing, it will be a bit uncomfortable to chew on for a few days but you will get use to it. I don't even notice mine now.

I have had a couple and honestly, if you have a temporary crown right now then the tooth has already been ground down.   My crowns did not hurt at all after the first hour or so.  The gum was a little sore for a couple of hours.  You are definitely through the worst of it.  Should be pretty easy from here. 

Good luck.
