Had mine done this morning...took about 2 hours for root canal and crown to be put in. Not sure if you need a crown, but for me they said the one they put in now is temporary and I have to come back in 3 weeks to get the permanent crown in.
Also, I drove back home and am feeling fine, so in my case there wasn't really any recovery time...
(waits for rufus for a legitimate response to this question)
