Discoloration of teeth because of tablets

Hi, I was a cancer patient. I was using several medicines as part of the treatment. These medicines have destroyed the color of my teeth. I tried different DIY methods. But these DIY methods have affected adversely and my tooth is now decaying. When I eat sour food, I suffer from sensitivity. That's how I understood that my teeth were decaying and it was creating a cavity. My husband suggested undergoing dental cavity treatment from a dental clinic. I went to the dental clinic and the dentist told about filling the cavity for time being. Is this filling for the lifetime? Will this cause any difficulty while eating and talking? Is there any alternative to the filling? What all things should be kept in mind before undergoing the treatment?

    A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and shape. When a dentist gives you a filling, he or she first removes the decayed tooth material, cleans the affected area, and then fills the cleaned out cavity with a filling material. By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay. If decay or a fracture has damaged a large portion of the tooth, a crown, or cap, may be recommended. Decay that has reached the nerve may be treated in two ways: through root canal therapy (in which nerve damaged nerve is removed) or through a procedure called pulp capping (which attempts to keep the nerve alive). I hope this information will help you.
