Do bear in mind that if you lose a filling, even if there's no pain, you've really reduced the structural integrity, so to speak, of your tooth. Now that a filling's gone and you have a big hole, your tooth is much more likely to chip or break or shatter in some manner.

So long as it doesn't hurt, you'll probably be fine, but stay away from the jawbreakers and Captain Crunch. Also, you may notice that your tooth is now much more sensitive to hot and cold. If so, a tube of Sensodyne, or some other toohpaste for sensitive teeth may help. At least until the 28th, that is.
