    It's More of a Sensitive Tooth

    I had to get a filling a few weeks ago and the filling I got was "tooth colored" instead of silver.  The dental office said that this kind of filling conducts temperature more than the silver, so now it's sensitive to hot and cold. Anyone else ever have this...
