Question about numbing shots at dentist?

Ok so I went to the dentist today to get 4 or 5 cavities filled (all on the left side of my face, upper and lower), that were between my teeth i think. So the dentist gave me 3 shots of numbing medicine and i was completely numb, i didnt feel a thing.Afterwards I noticed that the the left side of my face was very numb and it was hard to talk. Also, when I smiled it is very crooked and weird looking. Is this normal? The dentist told me the numbness will go down in 2-6 hours but i'm just hoping she didn't give me too much numbing medicine or hit a blood vessel or something...my face looks crazy!!!
