See your dentist: Often, a filling may come out, or in this case if you pulled it out; it may not be sensitive or hurt. That doesn't mean there is not a problem that needs to be fixed. Get to a dentist asap for an exam and he can tell you what should be done to properly restore the tooth.

Get to dentist: Do not try any home remedies or fillers if possible.
