Re: Pain after crown/veneers
I have to say, I am pretty fed up with the pain I am getting as before the surgery my teeth were fine and had been for years. The only problem were my front 6 teeth, which had become aesthetically unpleasant to look at due to veneers being placed on them in the late 80's. Soon after having that procedure an abscess formed in the front right tooth and I ended up having to have middle of the night emergency treatment to drain the tooth. Then, the dentist doing the work, in his infinate wisdom decided to fill it with a black filling. Because of this the tooth progressively went black over the years until I decided that I could stand it no more and decided to have the whole lot done privately.
So here I am fairly happy with the results (now wish I'd gone for a whiter shade), but with this constant toothache night and day. And I say it is an ache rather than the others that you described because it is just an overall ache in the right side of my mouth. For some reason it will always start about an hour after falling asleep and can happen at anytime of the day. I notice that the cold or heat hits the canine tooth underneath and sends shockwaves through my whole mouth and then tails off to the dull ache.
I have been back to my dentist 3 times since the abcess and despite the cleaning process the pain still continues. He even took X-rays of both the front and the back teeth, but nothing shows up and basically he really does not know what is causing it. All I can do is wait for the pain to 'localise' and spend another £xxx on having treatment to cure it...if there is a cure!
