  • I am a retired dental assistant, and I can tell you (like Stacy said) it is not a permanent solution (hence the name.) In fact, putting over the top of decay is like putting a swarm of bees in a pickle jar. The decay will sit under the temp fill and continue to spread. You should really go to the dentist and have the temp filling removed and have a proper filling placed. However; I do know that dental treatment is expensive and times are tough, so if you really want to remove it you can try scrapping it out with a dental instrument (you can buy these at any store, target, walmart etc) and re-do it. You may want to have a friend remove it for you, because it might be difficult for you. But, you might do further damage to the tooth by trying to remove this filling.
