The day after you had gone through the tooth colored fillings, there are certain troubles that you may experience. Here are few of the most common ones:
- Numbness: During the procedure, dentists give local anesthetic to make the area around the tooth numb. The numbness would last for few hours and during that period you need to consume liquids or soft foods until it goes.
- Discomfort: Mild sensitivity would be there in tooth for a few days, especially at the times when you consume cold or hot food stuffs.
- Feel of new filling: Your mouth would experience something unusual after filling, but gradually with time, you’ll get used to it.
- Eating and chewing: When filling settles down, it will get hard. However, due to numbness you may feel uncomfortable while chewing hard food items.
