There truly is only a tiny amount of cement used to adhere a crown. The inside walls of the crown get lightly lined with the cement allowing enough room for the crown to fit over the core build up without jeopardizing the fit. I'm stressing the amount to you because hopefully your exposure to it was minimal enough to avoid a permanent problem. Of course your concerns about continuing to wear this crown are warranted based on your history of extreme reactions to minimal exposures of other things.
I wish there was an easy solution to this problem... or at least a reasonable one!
I'm hopeful that your physical reaction will lessen and dissipate altogether and you won't have to deal with this any further.....
Keep us posted.....

The reaction is clearly extreme, but considering I get heart rhythm changes with .5 L supplemental oxygen and have been unable to tolerate any meds for lyme or ms over the past several years, and have cardiac/breathing changes around baking soda, it seems possible that I might react this way. I can't think of anything else that has changed, and the symptoms started about 1/2 hr after I had it placed.
