Is it possible to puke up a filling?

I got way too drunk last night, and of the few things I remember, I'm pretty sure I saw one of my fillings (which I'd just gotten the day before) in the toilet while I was throwing up. It was a little gray thing floating around, and my fillings were gray. I don't think I ate anything of a similar color.

Is it possible that I really did throw up my filling, or was I just seeing things?

    Feel around your teeth with your tongue and see if anything is missing. Fillings do sometimes come out, I've lost count of the number of times I've bitten into something crunchy and a piece of filling has broken loose. Chances are it's an old filling that was due for replacing.

    A) Don't ask a doctor, ask a dentist.

    B) If you puke hard enough you can loosen a filling and it would fall out.

    C) You shouldn't have been drinking so soon after getting a filling, especially if you can't hold your alcohol.
