To anyone that has had a tooth capped, is the procedure painful and how does the tooth feel afterwards, does it feel and look like a normal tooth again?

Your natural tooth is ground down to make room for the crown, a root canal may or may not be required first. A porcelain crown is made from molds of your mouth or from digital scans. A temporary crown may be installed while waiting for the final crown which gets cemented onto the ground down tooth base. It looks and feels just like a real tooth once it is all finished. You will be numbed up for any drilling or grinding, not much real pain afterwards.Source(s): 12 crowns in my mouth
