I had six crowns put on last week. two of them are dryving me crazy!!! Theyre sensitive to everything. hot cold you name it. My dentist says to be patient, but I just think maybe he did something wrong. I got a second opinion. this doc thought “maybe” some of the dentin (?) was exposed. What do I do!!

It is not uncommon to have sensitivity after having crowns placed. Sometimes it takes several weeks to get them to settle down. If the dentist wasn’t sure about the dentin, then I am prone to think there wasn’t an obvious problem. My suggestion would be to give it a few more weeks. However, the pain should be getting better, not worse. If things worsen, I would have your dentist double check to see why these two teeth aren’t healing. You may end up needing a root canal treatment.
