Sensitive Crowns

I had three porcelain crowns put on a few weeks ago. They are very sensitive, especially to hot and cold. I’ve had a second opinion and he said there doesn’t seem to be anything obviously wrong with them. What should I do?

It is not uncommon for porcelain crowns to be a little sensitive in the beginning. If they aren’t getting worse, then I would give them a few more weeks to let them settle down. It is possible they were overly irritated during the crown process. Be gentle with them, avoiding things that irritate them. Though don’t neglect flossing. It is important to keep them clean.  If, however, they take a turn for the worse, then you need to go back in to find out why they’re not healing.
