That depends: That depends on the size of the cavity. Crowns are a very effective way to treat large cavities where a lot of the tooth is missing because they cover over and protect the remaining natural tooth structure. Small to medium sized cavities do not require crowns. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Indirectly, maybe: Question is too vague, but i'll address possibilities. If a crown is poorly designed with a gap in the fit on the tooth, a cavity could develop in gap. If cavity remains after tooth reduction for crown, it may continue to progress under crown. If a crown doesn't contact adjacent tooth well, food trap forms which creates a condition for a cavity to occur on adjacent tooth or at margin of crown. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
It is possible: A little more history about the onset and type of pain you are experiencing is necessary. If the crown has been in place for a long period of time, you could have recurrent decay in the tooth. You could also have a periodontal or gum problem. If the crown is a new crown, it could be related to irritation from the seating of the crown, possibly some residual cement, or your occlusion or bite. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Depends: Fillings can be sensitive a couple of days depending upon how deep the cavity was and the type of material used. If still sensitive after 48 hours, contact your dentist.

Both: The extent of the problem in each will determine which one is more important to do. Your own dentist can answer that question better than we can never having seen either tooth nor x-rays of them. If money is an issue consider at least having the crown removed to evaluate the tooth, and then temporized with a good fitting strong temporary crown. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What are the pros and cons to electively (no margin cavities) remove old porcelin fused to metal teeth crowns for new ones? Could a tooths root split?
Not likely: Of course, it's always a possibility, but root splitting is not likely, as long as when the crowns are being cut off, they are fully cut through, down to the tooth, before they are removed. Really, unless you have decay on the teeth, there is no need to remove the old crowns. Unless you don't like the look of them or the porcelain has chipped off. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

I have two cavity holes in my front teeth, roughly how much would it cost to crown them? And what is the best natural crown type
Cavities: Without knowing the exact extent of the decay, it is hard to determine what treatment you need and what the total cost would be. Simple fillings are less expensive that root canals, posts, and crowns. That being said, since fees vary so widely from town to town and office to office, a fee quoted you over the internet is meaningless. Seek the advice of a local dentist who is going to treat you. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
5 year old had cavity filled. Did not have to do pulpotomy, just put on a silver crown. Now his cheek is swelling. Should I be worried?
Recent work: If the work was done recently then he/she may have bit or chewed their cheek or trauma from the work. They have that tendency because they are not use to being numb. If the work was done a while ago and there is pain then you need to go back to the dentist and have it looked at. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
13 year old has deep cavity... Dentist says she needs a root canal. Is that safe? She'd have to get a silver crown. Is it better to just pull it?
Near the pulp: If the cavity is in close proximity to the pulp of the tooth then in addition to a crown the tooth will likely need a root canal. If the tooth has developed a deep crack that extends below the pulp and into the root then the tooth will likely need to be extracted. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
