Hello there,
It's not uncommon to experience some sensitivity after having a crown placed. If the prep was close to your nerve, you may experience sensitivity for a few weeks. I would recommend allowing some time for your tooth to heal. If the issue persists, a bite adjustment or root canal treatment may be necessary. Good luck and I hope this helps. Follow me if you have more questions.
