In brief: Depends

Depending on the area of decay, size, proximity to the gums, the amount of discomfort can vary.
Grinding a tooth down for a crown is oral surgery being done by your dentist.With an approachable, experienced dentist treating you, discuss your concerns about pain as there are options; litocaine anesthetic to numb the tooth, nitrous oxide to relieve your stress, Halcion (triazolam) rx for a dental sleep visit.

In brief: No

Most of the time you will be numb for the preparation of a tooth for a crown.
If you are having pain, request more anesthetic.

In brief: Dental crowns

Most dental procedures including dental crowns are done under local anesthetics.
Therefore, there is no pain in preparing a tooth for a crown. Dentist are more concerned than ever about making sure that their patients are comfortable.

In brief: Dental crowns

A procedure to place a crown is no more painful than getting a filling.
All dental procedures are minor surgery and come with some discomfort. The pain will be controlled with local anesthetic. Your tooth will be in the end in much better health.

In brief: No

Local anesthesia will prevent any discomfort during the procedure.
Afterwards, there may be some cold or hot sensitivity, but no continuous pain. If there is, something else may be wrong, such as inflammation of the pulp of the tooth, indicating possible need for a root canal.
