In brief: Sometimes

Sometimes if the dentist worked or manipulated the gums.
Should promptly resolve. If not, see dentist.

In brief: Gum swelling

It is possible that the gums were irritated and swelled after having the matrix band around the tooth and a wedge during the filling process! that should go away quickly.

In brief: Very common

The gum tissue around the prepared teeth may be sore for several days.
If concerned, visit your dentist for post-op appointment.
