Is having a filling painful?

Once local anaesthetic has been administered, the relevant area of your mouth will be numb so you won’t experience any pain at all. As well as removing the decay and ensuring the tooth is free from bacteria, your dentist will shape the filling to ensure it is a replica of your natural tooth and that your bite isn’t affected by the new filling. Whilst your filling may feel a little strange as the numbness begins to wear off, you shouldn’t experience any pain during or after the treatment. Sometimes fillings can be completed without the need for anaesthetic.
