I’ve only had fillings while numb so I can only describe that experience
the drilling doesn’t feel like anything at all. Then the dentist will scrape your tooth to remove the decay. That doesn’t feel like anything but some pressure. Not bad pressure or anything it doesn’t hurt a bit. Sometimes my dentist uses a different type of drill that vibrates to remove the decay and you can just feel the vibration but nothing else. After all of the decay is removed, they put the filling in and that doesn’t feel like anything at all.
