I had the same problem but my teeth have slowly improved without any treatment (i.e. salt or Oregano oil). They're still slightly sensitive now, but they improve a little more every few days. Can't say I know why this occured but I suspect it has a lot to do with the nerve being irritated by drilling and decay. The few that bothered me, this was exactly the case. I think the nerve needs to settle down over time (i.e. reversible pulpitis). If it were ireversible, the pain would linger after chewing or drinking hot/cold. This is not really what I experience. Not sure with Marnica.
I've read similar complaints on other filling material experiences so I guess its hard for me to jump to any conclusions on DiamondCrown. Its also a material that's been in use for quite a while with pretty good success for the most part (from what I've heard). If it was causing teeth to be extracted or canaled to the degree you suggest I don't think it would still be in use.
My instincts tell if you have pain or problems, there's more to it than the material itself, and if I had to guess, another material put in the same tooth would have cuased pain as well. Just my opinion.
Marnica, if you're out there, give us an update.
