When the decay has been taken out of the tooth, it is replaced with “filling” material. In the past, amalgam (silver) fillings were placed into the cleaned out portion of the tooth. With advancements in dentistry, you can now have tooth-colored fillings instead of silver fillings. You may even elect to remove your old silver fillings in favor of new, undetectable tooth-colored fillings.
Q: How long do I have to wait after my fillings to eat?
A: Wait at least one hour. If you can, wait until the numbness goes away; otherwise eat soft foods so you don’t chew on your cheek.
Q: How long do I have to wait to eat or drink after air abrasion fillings or sealants?
A: You can eat and drink immediately.
