  • Oh yes I had this done a couple of times. It is painful after the novacaine wares off. I had to have new crowns put on, so they have to remove some of the gum tissue to expose the natural tooth so they can get the crown on. You have stiches for about a week until the gum is healed. My teeth are ok now.
