I had a root canal and permanent crown placed about a month ago. The procedure(s) went well & everything felt fine up until a few days ago. I’m not in any real pain but the tooth feels kind of weird (brushing teeth, etc). I used a light to look a little more closely & right where the tooth feels weird, it appears black (inside part of tooth, closest to tongue). This is my furthest back, upper molar (tooth #2, I think). If I tap on that inside part of the tooth with my finger, it definitely feels different- on the verge of uncomfortable. Any thoughts on why it might look like this? Good idea to call dentist or am I overreacting? The tooth is question is circled in blue.
