Need evaluation: There are some possibilities of the pain you describe here. The pain might be just a temporary phenomenon. Filling too high usually is primary reason for the pain right after a new filling. Worse is tooth has crack and beyond repairing. Please consult your dentist for further evaluation.

Immediate result: If you received surgery to correct your open bite, you should see the result right after the surgery. Of course, there is recovery time and post-surgery Braces are still needed for few months.
