The dental procedure was needed after keepers noticed a chip in one of Bai Yun's lower canines. After a dental exam was performed and X-rays taken, the Zoo's veterinary team proceeded to repair the chipped tooth on the anesthetized panda. A dental composite was used to fill in the damaged tooth, which was then cured with a light to seal the filling. (AP Photo/San Diego Zoo, Ken Bohn)
