Hello. That is flare up. You have to visit that dentist back and remove the temporary filling/White filling .You would be fine in another 3 days. Nothing to worry.In some cases it will happen.

Start some antibiotics after consulting your dentist. Don't worry. This happens sometimes. Till ‚Äčthan apply ice pack on the swelling at regular intervals. Avoid hot foods completely.

Keep taking the antibiotics and analgesics. Pain stays for some days even after the root canal treatment.
