The new technology of dentistry lets the filling set quickly. However, it's best to eat slow and on the other side of your mouth just to be sure. If in doubt always ask your dentist any questions you may have. You can even phone them once home.

It depends what sort of filling and what anesthetic you had. If it is the tooth-colored one then you are good as soon as the UV light sets it, if you have the silver colored filling then it is best to wait 24 hours to eat on that side of your mouth.

What is a 3 surface tooth filling?

Its basically a large filling. A three surface filling can be described in example as "MOD Filling" which would the the mesial, occlusal, facial surfaces, if indeeed, that is the 3 surfaces the filling is going. Mesial and distal represent the different sides of the tooth, and occlusal is the top - center surface of the tooth. So MOD would be a filling ranging across the top of the tooth. The entire top wont be gone, but there will be a noticable filling.

If the Dentist says the tooth cracked because of grinding and not because of the filling he put in 2 weeks ago is this correct?

it is most likely the tooth had a small crack in it anyway. the tooth was alittle"high"from the new filling and the extra pressure from biting on it, cracked the tooth. usually after a new filling, you should go back to have the filling polished which strengthens the filling and adjusts the bite.

What is okay to eat after you get fillings in your teeth?

It is best to wait until the anesthetic wares off( if you have it). Your dentist will probably tell you not to eat for a while sot it gives the filling time to set probably. When you do eat, the tooth with the filling will probably be sensitive to hot or cold things.

How will the dentist treat a tooth with a small hole in the front of it?

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.
