Cerec Crowns

I just went to the dentist for a crown yesterday. This is the second crown this dentist has done for me and, because I was never fully satisfied with the result of the first one, I considered changing dentists before I had this work done. Now I wish I had. The first one, done in 2009, also included a root canal. After the root canal (done by a specialist) while the temporary crown was on, I had no pain. Ever since my dentist put the permanent crown on, that tooth has had some sensitivity. While it isn't as sensitive as it once was, it still does not feel like a normal tooth. Both crowns were completely done in the office, so, after researching this, I presume they are Cerec crowns. I have read a good bit of info on the web about them, but have never seen the complaint that the crown is not smooth and slick like normal teeth. I have asked those who have traditional crowns how their crowns feel and they are just as smooth or smoother than their regular teeth. Mine is not. It has the scuzzy feel that a tooth has when it needs to be brushed. Is this normal or is my dentist not doing something properly? He put it in the machine to form it, then after trying it on me and making some adjustments, he put a glaze on it and did something to it (baked??) for 30 more minutes. I would think the glaze would make it slick, but it is kind of rough compared to my natural teeth. Thanks if anyone has any advice about this.
