Recovering after Composite Filling

Now that you've undergone a procedure to get composite fillings, here are a few things to bear in mind:

  • It's a good idea to check if the local anesthetic has worn off before you have a hot or cold drink; remember you may feel sensitivity. We also make sure that you do not bite yourself and cause any injury to your lips, cheeks or to the tongue
  • Swallowing and eating when numb can be challenging, so please be careful!
  • The fillings are solidified and hard when you leave the dentist's office, this means that you can eat on them as soon as your mouth does not feel numb
  • You may feel that the fillings are gritty, this is completely normal and should go away after a couple of days

If in doubt, call us!

Teeth can be sensitive after operation

It is normal to feel some sensitivity in your teeth after the procedure. This is a typical reaction from your nerves. The sensitivity from white fillings may last from a handful of weeks to months, it really depends from patient to patient.

Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Stop use of whitening toothpaste or any other whitening products until you don't feel sensitive; the ingredients in these products can make things more delicate
  • It may help to use toothpaste that protects against sensitivity (i.e. Sensodyne, Crest for sensitive teeth) until your teeth feel normal
  • If your bite does not seem normal or feels 'off', please do not wait for it to suffer any wear and tear, contact us to have adjustments made to the filling

We want to see you!
