Depends: The answer depends on the size of the cavity, the depth of the cavity and the potential for additional restorations on the same tooth. Many times, the better option is an inlay, onlay, crown, root canal or extraction and placement of an implant.

No.: Hydrogen peroxide has not been shown to cause any damage to fillings, or dental cement. It has, however, when used as a mouth rinse, been linked to tissue damage and pre-cancerous changes in the epithelium. I would urge you not to use hydrogen peroxide as a mouth rinse.

Does dental bonding work for filling in cavities? I've read that you can have a dental bonding procedure performed to fill in cavities. Is this true? Are there any advantages to it over regular fillings?
I : I assume that you are referring to amalgam or silver fillings as "regular fillings", and "dental bonding" as bonded composite fillings. Either one replaces the lost tooth structure destroyed by cavities. Amalgam fillings look unesthetic, conduct hot and cold more to the nerves of the teeth, and therefore often cause more sensitivity when drinking or eating very hot and cold liquids or food. Bonded composite fillings sometimes wear more than amalgam fillings, but look more esthetic, often appear "invisible" and actually bond to tooth structure, thereby making them stronger, rather than weaker once filled. Generally speaking, i would much prefer to have bonded composite fillings in my own mouth as there are many more advantages to them. You and other readers should be aware that they are usally more costly and many insurance companies will not pay for the additional cost on posterior (or back) teeth, which is unfortunate. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Dr : Dr zweig gave you some good advice. Was the root canal started? You did not clarify in your post. The dead nerve tissue needs to be removed to help the antibiotics work.
