Can a permanent crown on your front tooth cause a lisp?

I had a root canal performed on my front tooth. I had a temporary crown, and it ended up falling out. I was without a crown for two days. I immediately had a lisp. I got the new permanent crown put in this morning. Well, I still have a lisp. I complained, and the dental assistant said I would "get used to it". I asked the lisp, or the crown? She laughed, and didn't answer. So, will I have a permanent lisp? Or will this go away? I want know if I should call them, and find a way to fix it. Thank you!

I have heard of some speech issues occurring after a crown, but if I were you, I'd go back (or go to another dentist) to get it looked at- it's likely they can make some adjustments to the length or position of the crown to fix this.

The Dental Assistant was probably right, unless there's a space or something and not touching the adjacent teeth even a tiny bit, even then the mouth is in constant motion. If it feels funny it could be the crown I guess, if it feels too thick on the lingual (back) or something, a big maybe. I'd give it a month. You can always go back if it doesn't get better by then.
