While I had the temporary crown, everything seemed fine - it was as if nothing happened. But after
receiving the permanent crown, I began having sensitivity to hot and cold. It really wasn't that bad, so I didn't think much of it. But about 2 weeks after getting the permanent crown, my gum (cheek side) started to hurt (slight throbbing) and became a little inflamed and pulled back. When I massaged the gum with my finger, I got a really foul taste from the gum. So I went to the dentist.
