What to expect when you have a tooth filled:

  • You may experience cold or heat sensitivity and some soreness on your gum. This should subside in a few days.

Things to do when you have a new filling:

  • Do not chew on your new filling for one hour or until the numbness is gone.
  • Do not bite hard or chew on silver Amalgam fillings for 24 hours.
  • For children, make sure they don't bite on their numb lips or tongue.
  • If you experience pain for more than a few days, call our office.
