If the tooth felt fine after having the filling done for a while and now it has become sensitive, something has changed and you should see your dentist for an evaluation. If the filling was just done and it is somewhat sensitive to cold or pressure, this can be normal as long as it gets better as time goes by. If you are having pain, see your dentist.
