    filling cavity after deep cleaning?

    i just went to dentist today complaining about a cavity that's very obvious in my front teeths. but after looking at my gum and touching it with a pointed tool, she said the gum too sensitive and swollen, and said i have to do deep cleaning and learn how to floss. oh well, i may agree i need those but then she also said i have to do deep cleaning first and improve my gum for the next 6 weeks then she will fill the cavity? i don't understand is it reasonable?

    Your dentist is concerned that your gums bleeding can affect her doing your filling to the best of her ability. Front tooth cavities get filled with composite, and composite can stain if there is blood in the area. Six weeks is a long time, but she's not being that unreasonable.

    thank you, it makes good sense. however i decided to do the cavity filling first, cause i had a feeling the cavity quite big (i had it very small and didn't go to dentist at first; it bothered me for a while). i did it today and the dentist agreed w me. after the filling, on one teeth i kinda see a thin stained line on the filling part. i am wonder if it's blood and will i go away after many teeth brushing? it's still there after the first time I brushed my teeth so I wonder if it's permanent. I expected the teeth will be clean and white but it still looks like a stain. of course it's still better as a stain than a cavity.

    It's not impossible that it will fade, but it is rather unlikely.
