right away with care: You can eat most things after a filling but should avoid sticky things like hard canday, gummy candy, and hard to chew items like bread. The adhesion between the filling and the tooth needs some time to mature but will do so in less than 24 hours. Also you should wait until the anesthetic wears of to prevent filling damage or biting your cheek.
