Hello

I had my permanent crown on a few weeks ago and yesterday I started having pain when I drink something cold. Is this normal or something is not right?

Thanks

OK, it's possible that the gum has just readjusted round the new crown, leaving a little bit of root exposed which is causing the issue. Try using a sensitive tooth toothpaste for a few days, don't brush with it, rub it round the sensitive areas last thing before bed time and leave it undisturbed over night. If it doesn't get better after a few days go back to your dentist.
