Type of filling?: If an amalgam filling, one hour and if a composite filling, there is no waiting time. However, if you have been given local anesthesia, wait until the anesthesia wears off so that you don't accidentally bite your lip or tongue. You can drink right away!

Food after a filling: Once numbness is gone, resume your normal eating and food routine. Take care.
