Yes: Yes. If you got a plastic filling you probably can eat right away. If it is a silver amalgam filling you should wait 4 hours or so for it to set before eating, but drinking is ok anytime. Have fun!

Yes.: Be careful that you do not pour it down your front, as you may still be numb from the anesthesia !
