Composite Fillings in Fountain Valley CA

  • Don’t eat after your filling is placed for at least one hour or until the numbness is gone.
  • Remember to supervise children who have had a filling placed to make sure that they don’t bite their numb tongue or lips and cause serious injury.
  • In the case of silver (amalgam) fillings, do not bite down hard or chew on them for 24 hours.
  • Some sensitivity to hot/cold and/or soreness in the gums is not uncommon; this will usually subside in a couple of days.
  • If you experience discomfort or pain lasting longer than a few days, or if you have any questions, call Fountain Valley Dental Esthetics.
