Is it likely to be more painful to have a filling on your two front teeth than elsewhere?

No, but some areas of the mouth are a bit more painful to have the numbing shot in. It depends on the person and the dentist.

YES YES YES YES YES . there are more nerves in the front of your face than in other parts of your face. the shot is much more painful , but drilling should not be felt regardless. It is sometimes harder to hit the proper nerve in the front without causing pain first.

The whole is most likely from a cavity so they will put a filling in it. Most likely the dentist will get you numb. When you are numb they will drill out any decay and then shape the whole so it will hold a filling properly. If it is a front tooth, you will get a tooth colored filling. If it is a back tooth, you could get a silver filling or a tooth colored filling. That depends on your insurance, the docotor and you. If you have more questions, the dentist should answer any of them before beginning the work.

The best thing to do is get a filling. This will prevent further decay, which is what a cavity is, in the tooth. Since it is in your front teeth, it will most likely be a superficial filling with minimal drilling, so there is nothing to worry about. A normal price for a filling without insurance usually costs $150-$175. Get that cavity out as soon as possible!

It all depends of how big your filling is located, of how rapidly your dentist works, and of where your tooth is located (front versus back tooth).

If you have a broken front tooth, you will want to get to the dentist as soon as possible. The dentist can either remove the tooth or add a filling.
