Depends...: Filling five teeth or even one tooth depends on..Which tooth, extent of decay, how easily you numb up and your doctors speed and capability. There is no way to know all of these but you an ask your dentist what he thinks and how long it will take.

It depends.: If they are small cavities it can take less than 20 minutes. If they are large cavities it can take much longer. Your dentist should be able to give you a good idea for your specific case.
