You may need an adjustment of your crown ... #DrSarahThompson #STL
I would recommend trying to get an adjustment of the crown or the opposing tooth. Most of the time, if a patient has pain after a crown is placed, it means that their bite may need to be adjusted very slightly. This slight adjustment can be the difference between throbbing pain and complete comfort. I hope this helps. You can click "save" under my name in order to follow me on RealSelf and ask me more questions in the future.
Please post a better photograph in order to better evaluate. It's difficult to respond without seeing anything.
