I just had a large filling and I'm experiencing some cold sensitivity, what's wrong?

Dental Fillings | Arcadia CA dentist

If you've just had a large filling, it's not uncommon to experience some cold sensitivity because of the proximity of the filling to your tooth's nerve. Do not worry - this kind of sensitivity should dissipate quickly within four weeks of your filling procedure. 

However, if you start to experience heat sensitivity or pain when you bite, schedule an appointment with your dentist as soon as possible to make sure nothing is wrong with your filling.
