No, a dentist shouldn't be cutting into the bone to put a crown on. You may have misunderstood what they were doing. If you are unsure of what was done ask that it be explained better to you. It may make more sense then. Or you may find out there was a mistake made and then you'll be able to decide what to do next.

Dental crowns crackle sound with ice cream type foods?

When you visit a dentist for your crown or bridge, your dentist will "prepare" - remove your old crown, remove cavities of your tooth, etc. Then your dentist will take an impression of your "prepared" tooth and send it to a dental lab. The dental lab will then make your crown or bridge to replace your "prepared" tooth. Depending on the lab, your crown can be very good or not so good. When your dental crown crackles it is because of your crown is not prepared well. For more information about Dental crown visit
