cuz there are white matching fillingsHealth Question & Answer

Not sure what he put in but it sounds like a temporary. If they were to refill the tooth, all of the old temporary would be removed and the white tooth colored bonded filling placed. Because the tooth had a root canal you would have no pain from the drilling. They may also want to put a crown on the tooth and could use a porcelain crown that would match the shade of your teeth.Health Question & Answer
