In brief: Usually

When getting fitted for a crown, remember the tooth is usually alive.
If a tooth has has a root canal, we still handle the tender gum tissue that surrounds the tooth. Local anesthetic, gently administered, will assure you of a painless, comfortable and worry free visit.

In brief: Typically

You should receive an injection unless the tooth has had a root canal completed on it.
With a root canal, it iis optional, depending on if you want the gum tissue numbed around the tooth or not.

In brief: Most of the time yes

When starting a crown it is rare that you would not need an injection at some point.
If it is a traditional crown you will come back for it to be placed and then you are less likely to need an injection especially if it has had a root canal.
