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.

General practice dentists can restore a tooth with a crown. A specialist is not needed unless there are extraordinary circumstances.

No. They can reuse the gold, but it must be shaped to fit the tooth.
