However, upon arriving to the appointment, he decided to do a crown
I asked why a crown
instead of an onlay, I was told a crown
would provide a longer lifetime to the restoration so I agreed. If it helps to know the cavity was only affecting the MO surfaces. My dilemma is that after more of the tooth structure was removed to prep for the crown, my tooth began to feel sensitive to the air device my dentist was using, when before it wasn't.
