  • There can  be many  causes for that. It can be due to high filling or sometimes if the filling is very  deep and it is directly done on exposed nerves and sometimes as dentine is sensitive and there are nerve ending in it and due to this sharp pain can be there for initial 2-3 days. Some materials like composites cause initial sharp pain if not handled properly. so wait for 2-3 days and if it does not subside then check up  with your dentist. for more info on pain after dental filling you can read this article.... http://www.identalhub.com/dental-types-of-tooth-pain-after-dental-filling-814.aspx
