Hello,Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer. If the fillings are perfectly done, then you should get used to them is less than 24 hours. You shouldn't even notice that they are there after a day or two. But if there is a problem: Decay is completely removedExcessively deep fillingImproperly contoured (like in your case) then your mouth will never really get used to them. They will have to be professionally re-done. Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise.Good Luck !Regards,Dr. Behere

Can it cause this problem even though the tooth below it was removed and it's not touching anything else in my mouth?
Expert:  Dr. Behere replied 1 year ago.
Hello, Yes it can still cause a problem. Fillings need to be contoured not only to have perfect contracts with opposite teeth, but also within the tooth and with the adjacent teeth. Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information. Please leave a positive rating for me if this answer has helped you.
