Oral Health

Thank you for your answer to my previous question.
I wanted to improve my smile. The doctor recommended capping. Without knowing what it does to my teeth I accepted, &  only realized it after he trimmed 6 of my healthy front teeth. Now I think only one of my original teeth was really ugly and needed capping. I have some temporary capes which will be replaced by the “ permanent”  one this week. These temporary ones are too uncomfortable. Are the permanent ones going to be as uncomfortable”  I’ m really angry with the dentist for not telling me the process before he started and very depressed for what happened to my real teeth. I don’ t know what to do. I am paying all these money to look better and to be happier but instead I’ m too depressed … what do you recommend? Is there anything I can do now?

The permanent ones will be much more comfortable.
if the teeth are already cut the best thing to do is to place the permanent crowns.
