In brief: It depends

It depends on the size of the filling and what material was used.
Larger filling could be sensitive for several weeks to a month. If it's been awhile and the pain is not getting any better, check with your dentist...There may be something else going on.

In brief: There is no usual

Sensitivity can last from none to a few weeks.
It all depends on the depth of the restoration and how much the procedure irritated the nerve. Talk to your dentist.
