Excluding the wait for numbing , how long does the process take ? I’m terrified I have to sit there for too long and have a panic attack ):

Depends on the dentist, what they're using to fill it, where in the mouth it is... anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes.

I have had two fillings and both mine took just a little over 10 minutes
