Does my tooth x-ray look normal? Worried there is tooth decay (or bone loss) present after lateral incisor bonded.

I got dental bonding on 4/17/23. (Half of tooth was decayed/gone. Lateral incisor + central incisor bonded.)

Pain for 5 days now, gotten worse. Wondering if x-ray of the lateral incisor looks normal? (Post procedure x-ray.)

Well, it seems to have been a large cavity. If the tooth was giving some pain or sensitivity before you had it fixed, then your chance of recovery is even lowered. Sometimes the "nerve" (pulp) just can't recover from the damage and starts dying, leading to a choice between RCT or extraction. If your pain is increasing and/or you start needing lots of painkillers, then get ready.
