  • If you aren't happy about the filling or have questions then CALL YOUR DENTIST OFFICE AND ASK THEM!!!!!!!!!! For Real

  • sounds like your bite is off. that should have been taken care of at the end of the filling visit. its a little normal to have it feel "different" because its foreign substance in your body, you will get used to it. if there is pain or a lot of discomfort, it needs to be addressed.

  • This happened to me and it's so annoying. I didn't go back and it did even out or wore off after some time.

  • It sounds like they didn't file it as smooth as they should have. I don't know if they would numb you to do something minor like that or not. I know I have a little excess filling that catches on my floss and makes me think that it will rip the filling out if I yank too hard...they said that they can file it down the next time I go in.

  • I'm betting they can fix it without numbing it. And I am also willing to bet they will work you in. I got Christmas ribbon hung up under my bridge one time. x.x I called the dentist and they told me to come right in and they'd fix it. Took about two minutes. Maybe. I know when I got my last crown, I was not numbed for the fitting. I'm not understanding how it got left like that to begin with. My dentist checks my bite over and over when I get a filling.
