Far more would need to be known to answer your question, but generally if you leave work early you can be terminated if you did not provide notice of the fact you were leaving. If you did not have any paid sick leave accrued under the California paid sick leave law, then you can also be terminated for taking time off. The laws that protect employees against retaliation for seeking medical leave do not generally cover short term transitory conditions like toothaches.
Locate and consult with an employment law attorney. Good luck to you.
