What To Expect After Your Fillings

  1. Please wait to eat until your anesthetic wears off. That means after the tingly, itchy feeling is gone. Most all teeth are sensitive after fillings. White fillings may be more sensitive just because of the way we have to insert them.
  2. Liquids may be taken right away, but you may find extreme temperatures cause sensitivity. Please stay in the medium temperatures for comfort for a few days or weeks.
  3. Ibuprofen products may be helpful for a few days.
  4. If you notice that your teeth do not seem to touch together (top and bottom), your filling may be high. Please call for a bite adjustment, if this occurs.
