Gum and Mouth Symptoms

I had a temporary crown done about a week ago. I am still having pain where the work was done.

The dentist office called and said I needed to come back in because the impression didn't come out right. Can this cause the pain? ...Visitor from SC

Yes. Since you are already experiencing pain symptoms, it is likely that the errors in the impression caused the creation of a temporary crown that may be "hitting" the opposing tooth too soon, when compared with adjacent teeth.

It is good that the technical error was discovered, albeit perhaps a bit delayed.

Another temporary crown will likely be recommended for a "try in" period. Make sure you DO NOT approve the fabrication of the final, porcelain crown until ALL cosmetic and functional goals (no pain or discomfort) are satisfied.
