MEnter an answer sum: If your dentist already prepared your tooth and took an impressinn the just cementating your new crown does not require anesrthesia unless your tooth is very sensitive to the air when the temporary crown is removed. You should be fine.

Thanks for asking!: Yes,
a crown can be seated without dental anesthetic. It may be more uncomfortable, however, it depends on if the margins of the crown are under the gums and if the tooth is non-vital.

Bite may be off: Hard to tell exactly, but the crown may be overcontoured or your bite may be too high. Have your dentist take a look.
