Hello,Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer. A well done composite filling should not even be noticed by the patient after the first 24 hours. if your composite filling feels like a cement block, then there is something wrong with the filling. Please see your dentist ASAP.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

Hello,
The feeling of it being a cement block won't go away in two weeks.
The filling needs to be looked at again.
