Post-Op Instructions for Tooth-Colored Fillings

Sensitivity to cold, sweetness, and pressure is a normal response to new fillings and will improve with time.

The filling material sets up completely, so you can eat on it after you leave the office.

Initially, your bite may feel different. If after a few days there appears to be a persistent high spot on a filling when you bite down, call the office so it can be corrected.

Pain for no apparent reason at all, pain that wakes you up at night, or pain on where the tooth hurts and continues to get worse may indicate a bad nerve inside a tooth. If these symptoms persist and fail to improve, call the office.
