Pain in front tooth
It sounds that your bite may be off based on what you are describing. This is considered a dental emergency and you should return to your dentist as soon as possible to have it checked.
Front tooth hurts when I bite down ?
In most cases when a tooth is sore to biting down its a good indication that it will need a root canal now or in the near future usually root canals take between 1-4 visit with a cost between 900-1600.00 depending on location and number of canals and degree of difficulty. Good Luck

See your dentist and have an X-ray. The nerve may be damaged and might need Root Canal. Or, the filling might be in the way of your correct bite????
