Getting a crown removed feels pretty much like getting the crown prep/ they will numb you first, then they use the drill to cut the crowns off. they can't just pull them because it would pull your teeth. sometimes after they cut a line through they can pop them off, if not they just keep cutting. after they come off they may have to grind some cement off your teeth.

Oh I thought you meant just getting the crowns off, like as if you were getting new crowns.
yes to get the teeth extracted is the same as if you didn't have crowns. they won't bother to cut the crowns off first.
I had a crowned, root canaled molar extracted. it was really fast, took less than 2 minutes to get it out. it was the fastest easiest appointment I have ever had, you will be fine :)
