Well, new crown is in and I wish I could say it was a breeze but...no. It hurt through the whole process - from scraping off the old adhesive to cleaning the old tooth to pressing on and setting the new one. I thought something was wrong when the setting part hurt so much but when I was allow to ease off of it the pain eased, too. I had been anxiously waiting to rush to the car and take something but it wasn't needed. I can still feel the new crown but there is no pain. *sighs happily* Hopefully I can go back eating my greens with my salad tomorrow. I stopped eating lettuce because the leaves seem to go everywhere and it was hard to keep them on the left side of my mouth.

I can't believe I need to have another one done soon but not right on. I need a rest before doing THAT again.

I'm having my salad today and it's pretty good. No more procedures for another week or two or more.

Always tender at first, but you should be good in a couple days. Glad this one is over for you

Ye[, the dentist starting talking about the next procedure and I simply said, "I call you." *sighs* I'm done for a week or two or more.

If you still feel your new crown is like an alien in your mouth, you should go back to the dentist...Hope it won't happen, of course.

My dental experience here could be interesting to you.

Wow, after reading your story I feel like I got off easy, real easy. I think that's why my first temporary broke (because of the height). Neither one of the temporaries felt right but the second stayed intact because it was metal. This one feels pretty good this morning. There's a little dull ache after eating but other than that I can't feel it (if you know what I mean) and that's a good thing.

Glad to hear that you are feeling comfortable with your new crown now.

And thank you for reading my post! *hugs*

I guess I wanted to commiserate with someone who had gone through the same thing but I must say that if I had read your post before going to the dentist I might have forgone the crown altogether and lived with the broken molar.

No, no, we can't live with any broken molars. I was not lucky enough to find a good dentist at the beginning...Your dentist sounds trustworthy, I hope your next session will be less painful. *hugs*

I figured next time we would be skipping the plastic temporary crown and going right to the metal ones. That's for sure.

Me too. A little dull pain today when eating but when I woke up this morning it was like it wasn't even there. Much relieved.

The word dentist alone makes me want to emigrate... So I think you're very brave for getting it done. (and going again... )

Is getting a crown as expensive there as it is here?

Honestly if I didn't think it would get worse and start to hurt I would have lived with the broken teeth. They are both in the back so they are not visible when I smile.

It's not cheap but I don't know how it compares. I think I paid about $500 and that was with insurance.
