No worry: Just be sure to contact your dentist to have a temporary filling replaced with a permanent one. Take care.

Temp. Fix : That is ok tell you see a dentist to restore that tooth properly,
sounds like you have a cavity next to or under an amalgam filling,
haste to be fixed before it turns into roost canal treatment to that tooth...
