What is crowning? Normally those that did root canal treatment did the crowning also. Does it permanently stick to teeth?

Tooth Covering. A crown is a permanent covering that fits over an original tooth that is either decayed, damaged or cracked. Crowns are made of a variety of different materials such as porcelain, gold, acrylic resin or a mix of these materials. Porcelain generally has the most natural appearance, your dentist will decide which material is best to use.
Tooth Covering. A crown, also referred to as a cap, is a covering that is placed over a tooth. Crowns are placed to protect a tooth from failure, such as breaking, or to replace parts of a missing tooth. A crown is permanently cemented to the tooth. If the crown falls off it can easily be recemented by a dentist.
Protective cover. A crown is a durable cap that veneers and gives strength to teeth that have been weakened by decay or fracture. It is permanently cemented to the tooth, but can still fail if not cared for. If you had a root canal by your general dentist, he or she will likely place a crown after. If an endodontist (specialist) did your root canal, you will be referred back to your general dentist for the crown.

I just had root canal treatment this april 7, 2015 but not yet put crown on it. Now, mu tooth feel sensitivity to cold and sensitivity goes on root?

Root canal.

However, the root canal treated tooth can be sensitive to pressure or biting or be sore. Read more...

I had my root canal treatment on front tooth last april 7, 2015 but not yet put crown. To my surprise, it feels sensitivity to cold now and cant use to bite because it pains. Is it normal? What should I do?

No. It is not expected to have cold sensitivity because cold sensitivity is a sign that the tooth is still alive, and after a root canal a tooth should not have any nerve left and thus will be considered dead. It is possible that the cold sensitivity you are feeling is from one of the teeth next to it or that the root canal was not finished, I recommend going back to your dentist to check it out.

The same . . . . Teeth treated endodontically should look the same, with the exception of an access hole that is drilled on the biting surface of back teeth or the back sides of front teeth.

Follow up Check. The tooth which had a root canal may be experiencing pain from a variety of causes. If the nerve tissue was incompletely obturated or if the tooth has fractured (prior to a build-up filling and crown placement)- then you could be experiencing the pain you've described. However, it is quite difficult to make an assumption without inspection or radiographs. See your dentist for a follow-up. Read more...

Should root canal treatment be done on the supporting teeth for a bridge?

No. Unless the particular tooth is essentially gone and can't be crowned or fixed on own and be stable, no. Read more...
Possibly. It is not abnormal for a root canal to need to be performed on a supporting (abutment) tooth of a bridge. If the nerve is inflamed or infected, the root canal must be performed. The only other option is tooth removal and loss of the bridge. Read more...
Depends. If the nerves of the supporting teeth die or develop "irreversible" symptoms like waking you at night, aching throughout the day, etc, then yes, they would probably need endodontic treatment. But in general, just because a tooth supports a bridge does not mean it needs a root canal done. Read more...
