dma,

Get a bottle of any mouthwash that has CETYL PYRIDIUM CHLORIDE listed as an ingredient and gargle the area a couple times a day. It is an antiseptic that will keep the area free of bacteria. Try not to eat on your right side.

Usually a composite "White" filling makes a strong bond with the teeth. I guess your dentist didn't use the "etching" material right...it roughens the surface for better contact with the filling.

I lost one a couple months ago soon after it was installed...it was repaced and is holding fine.
