In brief: OTC and DDS

Take some otc pain medication such as advil, motrin, aleve or tylenol (acetaminophen) and avoid very cold and hot foods and liquids for awhile.
Also call your dentist for advice and whether it warrants your dentist seeing you to evaluate the situation.

In brief: ...

Ceramic inlays very often can cause sensitivity when biting.
I almost never use ceramic material for inlays: laboratory processed composite ( such as cristobal, or belle glass) is an infinitely better choice. Anyway, you obviously should see the dentist who placed that inlay, and have him (her) correct the situation. Good luck!
