|Lightly sand the surface of the bite mark area with a fine sandpaper such as 220 grit.
Wipe the area with a damp rag to remove dust and let it dry.
Fill the holes in with wood putty and let it dry. Sand the surface to even it out with the rest of the wood once it is dry.
Wipe on a wood stain that matches the rest of the furniture surface. Let coats dry and apply as many as needed until it is the same as the rest of the piece. Let the stain dry.
Brush on a clear finish if the rest of the furniture has one. If not rub with furniture wax to create a shine.
You may also poke the dents with a straight pin in a couple of spots and then drop water onto the dents. Let the water sit in the holes for a while to be absorbed by the wood. This sometimes will swell the area quickly.
